The tie between 3 consecutive years champions, Kashmir took on this season hopeful Bhalot Strikers at Elland CC. Kashmir got off to a flying start as they scored 70 runs in the first 15 overs but Bhalot pulled them back as Kashmir loss quick wickets and were bowled out for 134 runs in the 39th over on a wicket that was bowler friendly. Bhalot seem to be unbeatable this season and continue to maintain top spot. Whiterose beat Cup Finalist Darulshafa by 166 runs, Darulshafa desperately need to win a few games going into the final with some element of confidence. Bottom of the table tie between Bradford Moor and Great Horton Sports played at an iconic ground for the Quaid e Azam League at Dalton Cricket Club
(Previously Shabab CC home ground). The league meetings were held at the ground during the early 90’s. The game was won by Great Horton Sports by 7 wickets. Great Horton Sports chased the low score of 98 runs in just 12 overs. Rising Stars lost to Karmand by 41 runs as Rising Star fight for avoiding relegation whilst Karmand fight for 4th place.

Diamond beat Nafees by 37 runs to open up the race for the Crescent Section championship title, Kings XI Lahore are now in a chance to climb back to the top of the section as there is only 3 points between them and Nafees at the top place, Kings XI Lahore won against Tabs by 68 runs. Nathia also won today by just 22 runs and move to third place above Rajput who were left frustrated as their game was called off early this morning. Realistically the top five have a chance for the top two spots and the final five fixtures will be interesting.

Bradford Rider were also left frustrated as their game was rained off in the first over of AQ Khan’s inning, Bradford Riders scored the innings highest score (284) of day but didn’t get the opportunity to defend the score. They still have a a healthy 26 point lead and with the last of the second round robin games ending next week. The top four will then play the bottom four in the final four fixtures. Khan skittled Mirpur Royals in the quickest game today, whilst Central Leeds also won again today to make it four consecutive wins and play Khan next week who have also won their last four games, the winner of this fixture next week may have a slim chance of the top spot. Wakefield Star stunned Indus Bradford as they beat them by 62 runs in the group match.

In the Star Section is looks likely to be between Indus Bradford and Northcliffe as both teams play the last of the 2nd round robin next week. The winner will take a lead in the final four fixtures. Mid table CAX’s XI and Ghourghushti XI both won today, CAX’s XI won by 159 runs against Friends whilst Ghourghushti took on Bradford United and won by just 1 wicket.
