Back to winning ways – part 2

Exiles picked up a much needed victory on Sunday in an excellent, high-scoring, derby game in the Chiswick sun (sun) against Agricola.

Put into bat, Exiles amassed 224 for 7 from their 40 overs – the platform was laid by Keith (39) and John (78, with 5 sixes), before Andy hit 46 off 22 balls to take the Exiles to an above par score.

In response, Marcin (2 for 38), picked up the crucial early wickets of Gauntlett and Thody (2nd ball), but Lamprecht (92) stood firm and threatened the Exiles’ victory hopes; however, the returning Andy (2 for 41) picked up the wickets of Lamprecht and Peters to turn the game back towards the Exiles and Simon (2 for 19) completed excellent bowling analyses to see Agricola restricted to 207 for 8, giving Exiles victory by 17 runs.
