Match Report – 18th July 2021

The number of deaths and Covid cases are once again on the rise and members clubs need to ensure their players are vigilant and follow government advise – Coronavirus (COVID‑19) Government Website

From tomorrow (19th July 2021) England moves to Step 4 of the roadmap. Everyone should be cautious whilst managing the risks.

While cases are high and rising, everybody needs to continue to act carefully and remain cautious. This is why the government is keeping some of the key protections in place after tomorrow:

  • testing when you have symptoms and targeted asymptomatic testing in education, high risk workplaces and to help people manage their personal risk.
  • isolating when positive or when contacted by NHS Test and Trace.
  • cautious guidance for individuals, businesses and the vulnerable whilst prevalence is high including:
    • whilst Government is no longer instructing people to work from home if they can, Government would expect and recommend a gradual return over the summer
    • Government expects and recommends that people wear face coverings in crowded areas such as public transport;
    • being outside or letting fresh air in
    • minimising the number, proximity and duration of social contacts.

Some of the advise the league requires the clubs to do in order to mitigate risk is:

  • Continue to avoid using changing facilities or using crowded indoor areas
  • Clubs using changing facilities please ensure you keep all doors and windows open for good ventilation
  • Avoid gatherings amongst players & spectators and use the outdoor space well
  • If you have been requested to isolate (NOT by NHS test and trace) please do so, for you wellbeing if you choice to go out to watch any of the games please remain in your vehicle or sit away and do not mix with others.
  • Continue to provide take ways food provided by catering companies
  • Adhere to regular sanitiser breaks

Unlike Saturday leagues who re-arrange fixtures on Sunday, it is not possible to re-arrange fixtures in our league and the team failing to raise a team with a minimum of 7 players are likely to lose points so its more important to be vigilant and take extra care for both themselves, team mates and their families.

As we completed the 11th league fixtures the results today reflected the good weather we have endured during the past few days. Almost 2000 runs were scored in the Crescent Section today with three teams setting targets above 340+, for the bowling sides in the three matches it must have been difficult in the warm conditions, Kings XI Lahore set the highest target of 366 followed by Leeds Stallion (346) and Rising Star (344).

The surprise result of today was played at Liversedge CC, Home side Bhalot hosted Karmand. Karmand elected to bat first and set a target of 193 and in return they bowled Bhalot out for 173. Whiterose had a one side game against AK Eagles as they beat them by 10 wickets and moved into second place 27 points behind Kashmir who also claimed maximum points against their Semi final cup rivals Darulshafa. Bottom of the table tie between Khan and Subhan at Gildersome CC was won by Subhan by wickets and moves them third bottom at the foot of the table.

The Star Section remains unchanged as all four teams secured win today, Punjab beat Mylahore Tabs A by 82 runs, Rajpoot won by 88 runs and Wakefield won by just 1 wickets.
