Shell, Cults in Pole Position; Nexen Record First Win (Week 6)

Shell and Cults strengthened their positions at the top of the AECL with wins over Knightriders and Granite City.  Nexen picked up their first win of the season against The Rockhoppers.  Bon Accord beat G98.  Details to follow...

The game of the evening undoubtedly took place at Groats Road where Shell won the toss and elected to bat.  However, they found scoring difficult amidst a tight bowling and fielding display from KR.  Only Jamal and Akhlaq made telling totals with 33* and 22.  Victims were shared around with the ball but Kannan returned the best figures of 2 for 14.  In reply, Selva helped Knights keep with the the scoring rate by amasing a total of 32.  However, wickets had fallen steadily and KR required 3 runs from the final over with just 2 wickets remaining.  Balls 1 and 2 were dots, before the 3rd ball was hit to mid off and the catch was held.  The 4th ball also yielded no run and at 3 to win off 2 balls, the final KR batsmen Vinodh could only offer a return catch to the bowler Fazal; Shell sneak home by just 2 runs.
