Exiles steal Agricola classic…

Exiles recovered from 17 for 6 to beat Agricola by 2 wickets in a classic at DunDonald Rec.

A fine bowling performance by the Exiles restricted Agricola to 120 all out on a seamer-friendly deck – with 3 wickets for Wingfield and Ling and 2 for Iqbal. Also notable was a quite stunning catch by Shane Kruger running back to take a steepler over his shoulder in the deep.

Exiles looked to have thrown their victory chances away by losing 6 quick wickets – with variable bounce a key protagonist. However skipper Plume (39) again provided a fine gritty backbone to the Exiles innings and after some good hits by Santimon, it was a superb 46 not out from Jibran Ahmed that took the Exiles home.

A first win of the season at the third time of asking. Whalers at Chiswick next week.
