A young Stoke Newington captain Ali Sarafat (18) chose to bat and in
the pouring rain was bowled for a duck with the score on 5. Waheed Ullah was

soggy miss shaped ball. On came Ali Sarafat to slow things down. He got
Shannon (13) LBW in his first over and Will (17) in his second.

wickets fell regularly. Fields ending on 88 all out. A fine performance from
a Stoke Newington team with only 3 players over 20.
