T20 Indoor Leagues - Week 6 Bulletin

Kashmiri Panthers vs London Lions



The opening game of Gameweek 6 featured mid-tabled London Lions and rock bottom Kashmiri Panthers. London Lions opted against the new ball and went to bat first which turned out to be a good move. The London Lions finished on 18 after the first partnership but were boosted by the following three partnerships taking the score up to 139 only for some tight bowling by the Panthers to restrict the final pair to 17 leaving them with a total to chase of 157 which in actual fact was a good restricted total considering the rate at which the London Lions were scoring. Haroon Qayuum top scored for the London Lions with 16 whereas Tayyab Ilyas was pick of the bowlers for the Panthers with figures of 4 for -5. In reply the Panthers started off steadily scoring 72 with the first three partnerships leaving the final two pairs to score 86, but only managed 40 off the final two pairs falling short by 45 runs. Khurram Hussain top scored with 21 for the Panthers and Zaheem Wajid had the best figures for London Lions with 2-6.



Lahore Tigers vs Chesham Mobiles


Current league leaders Lahore Tigers came up against Chesham Mobiles for their second meeting of the campaign. Lahore Tigers won the toss and elected to make use of the new ball. Chesham Mobiles started off the best of the two teams scoring rapidly in the first two pairs racking up a combined score of 97 and looked well on their way to breaking the 200 barrier but it was only for some brilliant bowling by the Tigers who managed two hat tricks most notably the one by Zeeshan Butt who clean bowled the opposition with three consecutive deliveries, which helped restrict Chesham Mobiles to 127. Adnan was highest run scorer for Chesham Mobiles with 38 and hat trick hero Zeeshan Butt was pick of the bowlers for the Tigers with figures of 5 for -5. In reply Lahore Tigers started off very slowly scoring 22 off the first partnership, but managed to reach 105 by the end of the fourth partnership, leaving the final pair to get 30 off the final pair but fell short by 18 after only managing 12. Tanvir Butt top scored with 20 and Wahid picked up figures of 4 for -12 for Chesham Mobiles.




Punjabi Lions vs Big Bite Chesham



The final game of the week was a cracker between Punjabi Lions and Big Bite. Big Bite decided to bat first and started off aggressively scoring 39 off the first partnership and just went strength to strength reaching 156 at the end of the fourth partnership, only for the final pair scoring 49 and taking the score beyond the 200 mark with a total of 205 something that looked a very solid score. Tajjamal Hussain was once again top scorer for Big Bite with a decent 33 and Umar Aslam was pick of the bowlers with figures of 2-11 for Punjabi Lions. The Punjabi Lions started off the in the correct mind set and scoring at above the required rate ending up on 81 after the first two partnerships but after this started to lose the tempo and scoring at a much slower rate scoring 124 after the fourth pair leaving the final pair to score a gigantic 84 which would have required some doing but fell well off the mark on 139. Lewis Thompson was pick of the batsmens for Punjabi Lions with 34 whereas Luqman Latif had the best for Big Bite with 3 for -6 who were eventual winners by 66 runs and resuled in taking the top spot in the league.
