Cricket Newfoundland and Labrador’s 20-20 Summer League got underway this Saturday at the RCAF field off Torbay Road (the former provincial recreation centre field). Sixty players are registered for the league and have been allocated into three equally balanced teams- the Thunderbolts, the Newfoundland Champions and the St. John’s Superkings. Each team will play the others five times, with the tournament culminating in a final tentatively scheduled for the Labour Day weekend with the Atul Ahuja trophy to be awarded to the winning team.
In the opening match, the Thunderbolts made 110 runs in 20 overs, led by Waqas Hanif’s 32. The Champions were all out for 73, thanks to some excellent bowling from man-of-the match Pawan who took four wickets for 18 runs.
In the second match, captain Rakesh Negi’s 52 led the St.John’s Super Kings to 105 and the Champions fell 22 runs short in their reply.

The teams for the Summer League 2012 have been selected (revised as of June 9). There are players under the ‘irregulars’ category assigned to every team. These players have informed us that they will not be able to play regularly and might have to skip certain weekends. We have also assigned a Team Manager for every team.
