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.

The top 4 in the AECL recorded victories over the bottom 4 as the league progressed beyond the half way point.

Cults batted first at Allan Park scoring 130 for 7 in a game reduced to 18 overs thanks to Shiraz with 26 and Phil with 25.  In reply, The Rockhoppers were all out for 72 with Avijeet scoring 30.

Bon Accord kept in touch with the leaders with a 65 run win over Nexen.  Bon Accord batting first made 166 for 5 with Niwaz Mirza retiring on 35 and N. Ali on 31.  Nexen's reply was cut short by S. Ahmed and Khurram who claimed 3 and 2 wickets respectively; Jamil (28) and Sharth (26) narrowly missing out on unbeaten innings.

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.

Shell have moved to the top of the AECL table after a 59 run win over G98 at the Links.  Granite City and Knighriders also completed wins.  Cults v Bon Accord was off due to an unplayable pitch.  Details to follow...

Shell won the toss and chose to have first use of the Links pitch.  They scored quickly upfront through Akhlaq (25), Abrar (27), Jamal (31*) and Fazal (30*) and then thanks to some late blows from Anjum (19), a total of 174 for 7 was reached after 20 overs.  Ellon pair Chris Watson and Rich Greenfield picked up wickets, 3 for 22 and 2 for 37 respectively.  In reply, G98 struck 7 maximums to keep up with the rate and were 102 for 4 off 12 thanks to Callum Herd (32*) and Grant Jamieson (30*).  However, quick wickets fell and G98 ended up well short of the 175 target.
