After another Tuesday washout, both Semi Finals went ahead as scheduled on Wednesday. At the Links, Knighriders easily overcame The Rockhoppers to move to final. The Rockhoppers won the toss and batted first but some very tight bowling ensured that they could only manage a sub-par 105/6. A valiant knock of 31* from opener A. Senthil was the backbone of the total as The Rockhoppers climbed to 60 off the first 9 overs. After that, Knighriders put a stranglehold on the rest of the overs and The Rockhoppers could only manage a further 45 runs in the innings. J. Morgan chipped in with 15 before being bowled by Bijil and A. Sood hit a monstrous 6 in his 12. A fine catch on the boundary off of Siva (1/12) ended his stay. M. Barker also accumulated 12 runs but was caught off Bijil just as he was looking to accelerate. A run out off the last ball finished the innings. Bijil finished as pick of the bowlers with 2/14. Mohan and Somi also chipped in with a wicket apiece.

After a long lay off due to weather, the league finally got some fixtures completed. Two of the games went ahead as Bon Accord failed to get a team together and so scratched against Academy.

Knightriders got the better of Cults to move up the table. Cults could only manage 94 in their allotted overs and were thankful for a 30* from Ankush. The best of Knightriders came from Ayapan (2/9) and Bijin (2/13) Cults batted out their 20 overs and finished on 94/8.

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.
