CRICKET: Agarwal stars in Parks
10:40am Thursday 3rd May 2012 in Other Cricket
Sam Agarwal shone with the ball for Oxford MCCU on the first day of their match against Kent in The Parks.
The off-spinner returned excellent figures of 4-49 off 16.4 overs as Kent made 251-8 before declaring.
The students were 50-2 in reply at stumps.
Seamers Dan Conway and Ben Kemp made early inroads after Kent won the toss and elected to bat, reducing them to 41-3.
Stuart Newman and Alex Blake then halted the slide, putting on 117 before Newman was trapped leg-before by Agarwal for 89.
Blake went on to top-score with 97 before he too fell to the off spinner, who later dismissed Fabian Cowdrey, grandson of Sir Colin, for one.
Left-arm seamer Adam Ball sent back Agarwal and Freddie Coleman cheaply when Oxford replied, before Ben Williams and Charlie Walker led a recovery.
