Winter league

A team composed of members of the teams that contested the league final took on an all-star President’s XI at the Provincial Training Centre gym to mark the start of the Winter League. The President’s XI won the toss and decided to bowl first. The Fall XI made 141/7 from their 15 overs,
Taha Sheikh making an unbeaten 51 (45), Hummam contributing 19, Abrar and 31 from 12 balls. Nasir was the best bowler with 2/26.
A stunning innings from Kavish Srivastava brought the match to an early conclusion in the ninth over. He made exactly 100 from 30 balls with eleven sixes, as the President’s XI won by 9 wickets. He was an obvious choice for man of the match, with Taha Sheikh (Fall XI) named most promising player, and Mradul Inani best fielder (2 run outs, 2 catches)

Summer League
Only 2 teams competed in the Summer Lague in 2014.

An exciting start for Summer League 2014 as the Shamrocks A defeated the Terra Novas A by 2 runs on June 22. The Terra Novas A won the toss and elected to bowl first.
The Shamrocks A 86/10 in 19.3 overs & The Terra Novas A 84/7 in 20 overs.

June 28:
The Terra Novas beat the Shamrocks by 10 runs in the A league match, which was followed by a 12 over B team game.
A match scorecard (Note that there are a couple of names switched – Bharat played, not Shameem, and Saqib played, not Shaifan). Man of the match Rahul Vashisht led the way for the Terra Novas with an excellent 68 (which would have been much higher on an outfield that was cut to a normal level). After the Terra Novas had lost a couple of early wickets, he and Bharat scored rapidly, Bharat hitting a couple of massive sixes.
After Bharat was bowled, Vashisht opened up, hitting six sixes. Sarawak Kumar bowled outstandingly (4-1-4-3) in the middle overs and also dismissed Vashisht with an excellent one handed catch.
Vashisht also bowled well when the Shamrocks batted, and despite no Shamrocks bat ever really getting in, the match was close thanks to 30 wides. Nadeem took two wickets, and the Shamrocks were unable to find the boundary when they needed to. Some strong fielding punished some overly ambitious running with three run outs, and the Shamrocks fell 10 runs short.

July 19

The Terra Novas A defeated the Shamrocks A by 76 runs in the fifth match of the league.The Terra Novas showed great patience in building a good total, taking few risks and keeping their wickets intact in the first ten overs, then effectively accelerating. The Shamrocks, playing a man short bowled well initially but could not control the flow of runs. They did not distinguish themselves with the bat, although several batsman were the victims of low bounce rather than poor shots. The season series now stands at 3-2 Shamrocks, with much to play for.
