Willoughby XI v WCC Exiles XI

Willoughby 208 for 8
WCC Exiles 209 for 5

WCC Exiles won by 5 wickets

Sunday saw the return of many Willoughby faces from the recent past as an Exiles team played out an excellent afternoon’s cricket winning by 5 wickets.

In glorious warm sunny conditions, the Exiles were led by skipper Tom Neville who along with the assembled team came from all corners of the country to re-visit The Green, in most cases returning to their hunting ground for the first time in over 15 years.

A strong crowd greeted their welcome which saw the hosts bat first making a useful 208 for 8. Ashley Rayner top scored with 49, with contributions also coming from Adam Whitfield (34), Rees Moor and Ben Hollis (29 respectively) and Ryan Perry (20).
The Exiles’ bowling saw Jonny Cumiskey return figures of 3 for 51, with Vinay Chhana (2 for 29), Mike Curtis (2 for 37) and Duncan Yeadon (1 for 37) also in on the act.

In reply, The Exiles were soon on the back foot losing Neil Jones, Mitesh Chhana and Craig Hughes early on and the home side sensing victory. However one of the more local Exiles contingent James Rowland came in to steady the ship and ultimately saw his side to victory thanks to a fine century.

He dominated the innings by passing 50 and set up a thrilling run chase in the last 20 overs. Despite losing Cumiskey and Karl Harland, Rowlands found a more than able ally in Neville as the pair came together at 70 for 5, and with a combination of well-placed drives and some hard-hitting chipped away at the total, eventually reaching the target with three overs to spare. Rowland’s 103 not out containing 13 boundaries and four sixes, with Neville’s unbeaten 58 having five fours and two sixes.

With the ball, Archie MicMillan took 2 for 35 and Callum Hanks 2 for 48.
