Exiles in tied match following council dis-grace..

Following a double-booking Exiles inaugural match with Graces CC was swiftly relocated to an un-prepared track at Dundonald Rec.

Graces chose to bat and were quickly 3 for 3 following 2 strikes from Andy Wingfield (3 for 5) and a run-out. However the number 5 played well for 46 and with some hits from the tail, Graces made it to 136 all out – with Masie Musakhel picking up 4 for 33.

Exiles reply looked well placed at 96 for 3, but following the departures of Leuvennink (25) and Hodgson (43) in quick succession the game changed and it took 2 boundaries in the last over from Jibran to rescue a tie for the Exiles.

An excellent encounter in a match that looked in some doubt earlier in the day! Agricola at Cottenham Park next Sunday.
