Week 4 matches
The Avengers kept their unbeaten record with a win over the Tigers, and the Superkings beat the Eagles in week 4 play.
This was true Newfoundland cricket, with the temperature barely into double digits and occasional light drizzle – but two entertaining matches were played.

The Tigers restricted the strong Avengers batting line up to 116/4 from their twenty overs, Deep Patel top-scoring with 30. well supported by Bharat Shetty (21*) in a 63 run unbroken partnership. Hummam continued his great bowling taking two wickets and conceding just 9 runs in his four overs. Hummam led the way with the bat as well, and at 81/2 with 7 overs to go the Eagles looked to be in a good position to win. The dismissal of Hummam for 54 triggered a collapse, however, and the last 8 wickets fell for just 10 runs. Drumhit Bhatt took 4/26, and Bharat 4/9, both being rewarded for bowling straight.


In the second match Gurman Khurana and Rakesh Negi (19) put on 37 for the first wicket for the Superkings, but then Gurman had little support. He made a patient 41, but the Eagles had a good day in the field, taking all their catches, and earning two run outs with direct hits. Osama Anwer took 3 for 10 with his well flighted spin. As a result they were chasing just 93 to win.

The Eagles lost early wickets, Amit Sundly making the breakthrough, but Saqib Jalees resisted well, making an excellent 34 before he was caught on the boundary by Tahla Riaz  off Purvi Kalyan. Purvi took four wickets, earning man of the match honours, as the Eagles were bowled out for 63.

Week 3 of the League saw the Avengers maintain their unbeaten record with a nine wicket win over the Eagles, and the Tigers cruising to a 10 wicket win over the Superkings. In both matches the side winning the toss batted first but failed with the bat, being bowled out inside their twenty overs.
Only one Eagle batsman (Nadeem Saqlain with an unbeaten 14) managed double figures thanks to a strong all round bowling effort led by man of the match Dhrumit Bhatt with 3 for 7. They made just 55, batting just over 10 overs. The Avengers lost an early wicket but then Senthil Selvamani (24*) and Rahul Vashishtha (29*) took them to an easy win with 11.4 overs to spare. Rahul has now made 205 runs this season being only dismissed once.

The second match followed a similar course. The Superkings got off to a promising start, with 16 on the board before the first wicket fell, but no-one could offer any support to Gurman Khurana whose excellent 57 was the only reason the Superkings posted 81. No other batsman made more than 6, and there were five ducks. Hummam Bin Saif took 4/6 with steady straight spin bowling. He then led the reply with an unbeaten half century, clearly the man of the match, and Saad gave him good support as the Eagles won by 10 wickets in 16.2 overs.

The Avengers top the table with a 3-0 record, with the Tigers in second with two wins and a loss.
