Shell, Nexen Record Wins (Week 9)

Shell and Nexen each finished Tuesday with an additional 2 points after wins over The Rockhoppers and G98 respectively.  Cults suffered defeat at the hands of Knight Riders, and now must rely on Shell dropping points elsewhere to have a chance of regaining top spot.

The Rockhoppers won the toss against Shell and invited their opponents to bat.  This looked like the right move as Shell buckled to 70 for 8 thanks to 3 wickets each from Abhishek and Ryan Mountain.  However, a late show from Abrar (33*) and Arshad (29*) insured Shell posted a competitive total of 151.  In reply, The Rockhoppers managed their highest score of the season scoring 101, but it wasn't enough to claim their first AECL win.  Shahram with 3 for 15 and Shahed with 2 for 15 doing the damage for Shell.

At Groats Road, Nexen won the toss and chose to bat against a 10 man G98 side.  They were dismissed for 112 with Kaleppu retiring on 30.  Four G98 bowlers claimed 2 wickets, the pick of the figures Wane Thayalan with 2 for 13.  G98's reply was cut short after 16 overs as they were shot out for 87.  3 for 22 from Pant put the brakes on the G98 reply; Andy Russell included as he was the only man to pass 20.

Over at Allan Park, Cults batted first scoring 142 for 7 against KR; Shiraz with 29 and Steve with 27.  KR left themselves 16 runs to score off the final over, but with wickets in hand achieved the feat.  Prem Ballal earlier scoring 30 and Siva 24.
