The second week of the 2017 season saw all three fixtures completed for the first time this season.

Bon Accord made it two wins in two games after chasing 123 to win by 6 wickets. Academy had two retirees in their accumulation, opening batsman S. Chundi (31) and Arfan (31) at 5.
A Kache and Chundi very quickly took the score to 22 of the first two overs but the former was caught behind off Farooq for a quick-fire 18.
Economical bowler, rather than wicket taking, was the order of the day and no bowler went for over 9 per over.
Of particular note were Hamza (0 for 14) and Nawaz (1 for 15) who each bowled their allotted 4 overs each.
Shakeel (2 for 30) and Nadeem (1 for 18) were the other wicket takers as Academy finished their innings on 123 for 5.
In reply Academy took an early wicket as A. Win was bowled in the second over by Shakid (1 for 25) to leave Bon Accord on 7 for 1.
A good partnership between Imran and Mirza (29) followed. Imran retired for a well made 33 and Mirza bowled by J. Khan (1 for 42).
Hamza (23no) occupied one end but wickets fell around him to create a tense chase as two batsmen were run out and another two were bowled by S. Memon. (2 for 16) He found a good partner in Shakeel (16no) and the two men steered Bon Accord home in the penultimate over.
Shakeel ending proccedings with a 4 off Kahn's last ball.

Hello all,

For those of you not aware of this I will fill you in with the details. 

On the 22nd January at the shared Indoor Net session at Sheddocksley Sport Centre, a terrible accident occurred when Amit Verma was struck full on his left eye with a returned drive cricket ball. He was immediately taken to hospital where he received stitches for gashes as well as treatment for a fractured cheekbone.

Hi All,

For those who did not attend the AGM, attached are the Minutes of Meeting, these were the highlights:

1. Subs for teams entering the AECL will be £10 this year as opposed to £20 in previous years.

2. The AECL Bank Account has a healthy balance of £753.89 which allowed for the subscription to be cut.

3. Six (6) teams will take part in the AECL this season meaning each team will play each other twice.
