Exiles beat Agricola by 23 runs on pitch D at Chiswick on Sunday.
On winning a good toss, the pitch proved to be a bit slow and low – particularly at one end – and Keith decided to anchor the innings – a bit too literally with 39 off 113. He was bailed out at the other end by Shahid (26 off 29) and Bernard with a returning to form 39 off 32. Exiles finished on 143 for 4 – about 30 short of par, but something to bowl at.
Agricola started well in response but once Justin was caught off Andy for a quick 25, the tide quickly turned. Andy picked up another, Naren and Yahya got one each, Ansar two and it was left to Ajmal to provide the coup de grace with a late 4 for 21.
So a 7th win in 9 and on to new opposition Kings Road in Croydon next Sunday.
