One brings ten..

After Exiles collapse last week, this time it was Whalers turn to collapse as the latest Exiles v Whalers encounter saw a dramatic change in fortunes.

Exiles batted first and generally batted well, reaching 199 for 7 off their 35 overs – with 50 for the returning Ansar and thirties for Shahid, Hasan and Bernard.

The Whalers openers cruised to 90 without loss in reply and looked set to lead their side home, before an excellent diving catch in the covers by KK off Shahid just before drinks made the breakthrough.

KK was then the bowler himself first ball after drinks with one that nipped away to get the other opener caught behind. Thereafter it was carnage as most Exiles bowlers picked up a wicket, in addition there were 2 run-outs and one Whaler retired injured.

Whalers were ultimately 149 all out, leaving Exiles winners by 50 runs.
