Axis St Ronald and Grammar98 overcame Knightriders and Inn at the Park respectively on the opening day of the 2013 AECL season.  Results still oustanding for the other two Tuesday games.  Winning teams to email the outcome to results@aecl.org.uk, please.

At Kings, Knightriders won the toss and elected to field.  They probably sooner wished they hadn't bothered as Rehan Haider took just 10 balls to reach 32.  This work at the top was continued by V. Bode (35*), N. Bhavsar (32*), P. Gundra (29), G. Tiwary (27) and S. Amman (26no) as St Ronald piled on 217 for 3 and early contender for highest score of the season (have you made the boundaries at Kings even shorter?).  Knightriders set about chasing the large total in the right fashion with Prem and Shiva scoring 32 and 35 respectively.  It was downhill from there, however, as S. Amman (3-20) and R. Narula (2-30) helped to dismiss KR for 144 with 6 balls of their innings unused.

Groats Road's first AECL game saw Inn at the Park host G98.  In a game shortened to 17 overs each amidst fears of early season poor light, IatP won the toss and chose to bat.  Fazal Khan (29) and Farooq Durrani (31*) batted positively to get The Park off to great start and Aamir Badr (18), as the innings drew to a close, helped IatP to reach 123 off 17 overs.  Callum Herd took 4 for 19 for G98.  In reply, G98 found themselves up with the rate at 47 without loss off 5.4 overs.  However, 3 wickets in 3 balls over 2 overs saw IatP bring themselves back into the contest as Kieran Findlay went for 27.  Chris Watson delighted his fans by hitting the ball almost exclusively through and over extra cover on his way to 32, and this paved the way for Scott Anderson (25no) to see G98 home with 5 balls remaining.  Earlier Aamir Badr completed a good evening with a spell of 3 for 20.

I have started to populate the 2013 fixtures on the website.  I have also attached a pdf of the full fixture list for the season.

Please direct any fixture queries to Aqeel.  If there are any discrepancies between the website and the fixtures list then that's my fault.  Direct those to me.

The AECL 2013 AGM will take place on Tuesday 26th March, 6.30pm at Mannofield. Meeting usually lasts about an hour.

Would all new teams who have expressed an interest to join the league this year please ensure they are represented at the meeting (if you are entering a team, please let me know in advance).

I'm assuming that all existing teams in the league will be re-entering again this year. Should this not be the case, please let me know in advance of the AGM.
