Northampton Exiles v Northwood Town Cricket Club Saturday 1st XI on Sat 04 May 2019 at 1:00 PM
Match was Abandoned

Match report Town won the toss on a freezing cold day in North London.

Opening the innings, Loomba and Ramawat looked to cash in on what looked like a decent deck until the first bout of rain forced a break. On returning to the middle it was a totally new deck with the ball seaming around and the wicket producing unreliable bounce, particularly from one end. As wickets fell at regular intervals, Loomba looked to defend his wicket but put away the loose deliveries to slowly increase the score. With regular rain breaks, Town could never get the momentum they needed to post a competitive score. Once Loomba departed, the lower middle order and tail crumbled to leave Town defending a disappointing 140.

In response, the Exiles openers started quickly and in attacking fashion, making use of the smaller boundary and putting real pressure on the Town bowlers. With the conditions wet and freezing cold, the away side were really struggling to stay in the game and it looked like Exiles were going to run away with it. Wickets from Malik and Shah gave Town some brief hope but the final shower ended the misery and the match was abandoned.
