After a tough, short season, Exiles finished 2020 with a morale boosting 99 run win against Agricola.
Batting first, Exiles reached 223/4 thanks to 56 from Keith – consistent as ever – and Hasan, after getting through an iffy start – with 78. Jonny’s quick fire 43 not out ensured a decent acceleration in the last few overs.
Exiles were always on top in the field – with all 6 bowlers taking at least one wicket – as Agricola were bowled out for 124 – with Phil the main beneficiary with 3 for 25.
Here’s hoping for a more substantial 2021 cricket season!
A tough day for the Exiles – succumbing to Streatham & Marlborough by 174 runs.
After they’d raced out of the blocks, the Exiles bowlers did pretty well to restrict the Streatham line up to 239 for 8 – 2 wickets for Naren at the start and 2 from Evan Roberts at the end. The Exiles fielding effort was noticeable for 3 different father and son combination wickets – caught Amil bowled Naren, caught Keith bowled Alex and caught Keith bowled Evan. Must be a record of some sort!
Streatham’s bowlers proved too good and Exiles were all out for a mere 65.
OMT away next.
