Week 1 & 2

Week 1 saw only one game, The Dons pitched up against Shell CC at a cold and dark Links. The Dons hit the ground running with their assortment of Grades Superstars.

Alex Keith retired on 34, his opening partner Rana also retired on 30. The Dons setting a daunting total of 154. Shell CC got off to the perfect start with Farooq Durrani retiring on 34, ably supported by Wajahat Ali.

But, once the openers left, the run rate dropped, and so did the dark clouds, leaving the Shell CC teetering out at 128 for 6.

The Dons made their statement and intent that they mean business and are here to win. A refreshing change for the AECL this year.

Week 2 saw Crescent line up against Shell CC at Groats Road, Crescent winning the toss and batting first, Abrar Ahmed blasting his way to 35 and retiring.

After which, there was a flurry of wickets Atif Shehman and Anjum Toor doing most of the damage. With a late surge of runs from Shovon, taking the Crescent total to a respectable 127 for 7.

The Shell CC response once again got off to a good start with opening partners Farooq Durrani & Wajahat Ali going at a healthy run rate. Wajahat getting caught for 12, which brought Captain Aqeel to the crease.

A mix up resulted in Farooq being run out for a well deserved 27. Aqeel & Viraj then built the innings with quick singles and some timely boundaries.

Aqeel retiring on 31, bringing Anjum Toor to the crease who chipped in with 16 not out to take Shell CC to the target with a couple of overs to spare.

All in all, a good game played in good spirit.

Down at the Links, The Dons lined up against the Dark Horses AKA The Rockhoppers .... awaiting their match summary and scores.
