The Heat followed this up with a staggering win over the Wildboyz posting 282 (thats over 14 runs per over) and this time Ryan Stanbury blasted a brilliant 189 off 72.

It's between Clifton and Woodbank for the second qualifier with the Kingfishers in the box seat with the points on the board. They still have to play each other.

Unsurpringly Ryan Stanbury leads the batting for the whole of Pool 1 with a total of 409 at an aaverage of 81.8, great work. It is the Heat's Aaryaman Roy who leads the wicket takers in Pool 2 with 12 victims. 
Pool 3 - two to qualify for the Quarter-Finals -
Mavericks & Hyenas qualify
With Hyenas v Thunder result still outstanding it is the Mavericks who lead the way with 15 pts and the Hyenas are 3 behind needing a win to top the table but they are now both through to the quarters.

There has been 4 games in the Pool this week with Moorside picking up two wins over the Kings and the Uproar. The Mavericks 214 against the Kings was the highest score of the week and the stand out performances of the week all came in that game with 50s for overseas Wilkinson and pro Snyman but it was Richard Harrington in the wickets again with 5 for 13 off his alloted 4 overs to make it tough for the visitors. 

Kings' Muhammed Mohsin leads the way in the pool 3 batting with 269 @67.25 and Shaw's Dilanka Sandakan who is the leading wicket taker in the GMCL20 Premier comp with 13 @9.85; Richard Harrington has 10 wickets at the best average of 8.20.

Pool 5 - one to qualify for the Quarter-Finals

Roe Green's 8 wicket win against the Fire put the Renegades top of the pile by 3 with only a big win frim the Fire over the Gladiators can see the Fire qualify.
 Joe Sith-Butler's 2 for 27 was the best bowling of the game as he helped restrict the Fire to 123 and his 51 not out as opener was the highest score of the game as they chased down the total with 3 full overs to spare.
In the other game this week mayhem's 178 was too many for the Gladiators with Aamir Riaz top scoring with 71 also taking 3 for 26 to limit the Gladiators and leaving them 34 short

Update 28 June 2021

Pool 1 - one to qualify for the Quarter-Finals - DSL Saints qualify
in the only match played this week, DSL Saints beat rivals the Wildcats by 9 wickets in a low scoring game to become the first team to confirm their place in the Quarter Finals. The Falcons have a chance of the extra qualifying slot but they will have to beat the Saints to get there.
Pool 2 - two to qualify for the Quarter-Finals

Wins for The Heat, the Kingfishers and the WIldboyz sees them take the top three slots. Gareth Cross was top scorer of the week with 61* off 40 as Kingfishers won by 9 wickets but with 3 games to play this week the pressure is on the Wildboyz so the Heat and the Kingfishers remain favourites with the points on the board but there are a few games still to play in this division.
Pool 3 - two to qualify for the Quarter-Finals
Wins for Heyside and Moorside means they have pulled level with leaders Shaw to all share 9 points and it was Moorside who blew it wide open by bowling out Shaw for just 82 and it was Richard Harrington taking out 4 of Shaw's top 5 for just 7 runs that did the damage,  In the other game the Kings beat the Thunder by 8 wickets as Muhammad Mohsin and Daniel Stock both ended the game on 55 not out. 6 
of the 7 teams in the division are now separated by just 3 points. there are 5 games still to be played. 
Pool 4 - one to qualify for the Quarter-Finals
Just one game this week as the Bullets surprised top of the table Fury in a high scoring win by 18 runs with Tom Liversedge scoring 74 not out off 35 balls and Sam McDowell taking 5 for 26 to halt the Fury response. With 5 matches still to be played there is no clear favourite although Edgworth Fury do have have the points on the board.
Pool 5 - one to qualify for the Quarter-Finals
Roe Green stormed to a 10 wicket win in 6 overs to take top spot on NRR in the only game of the week, The Renegades and the Fire share the lead and look likely to take the top place but they meet each other next week in the last game of the round.  

One extra team will qualify the highest point scorers/NRR between the 5 teams (2nd in Pools 1, 4 & 5 and 3rd in Pools 2 & 3)

With both fixtured games this week being forfeited it is Winton who progress to the Quarter-Finals.

Pool 2 - two to qualify for the Quarter-Finals -
Dukinfield Stags & Red Star Mottram have qualified 
Red Star qualified with a solid win over the Scorpions as Andrew Metcalfe and Oliver Andrew posted scores of 63 and 60 at the top of the order in a first wicket partnership of 125. Wickets fell regularly in the Stayley innings to leave the 59 short. 
In the other game played Hadfield St Andrews picked up their first win of the season after posting a very strong 249, with opener Richard Tranter leading teh way with 127 off 61 balls and an opening partnership of 130 with Ryan Murray, Despite 50 from Alex Beeley the Daredevils were 96 short to finsih with the wooden spoon.


Pool 3 - one to qualify for the Quarter-Finals -
Werneth Warriors have qualified
Oldham West were able to beat their landlords in the final pool game of the season with Muneeb Ahmed smashing 127 off 51 balls to take them to 193. The Warriors started well with Dildar Shahzad also reaching a century with 115 off 61 but he had little support and they fell 16 short.  It was not enough to prevent the Warriors qualifying though. 
The Tigers had looked strong but despite pro Imran Rafiq topping the batting for the Championship GMCL20 with 466 runs and topping the bowling with 13 wickets at 8.15 they didnt quite make the quarters despite a 101 run win against Springhead this week where Imran scored 143 off 59 balls to help the Tigers posted 242. 


Pool 4 - one to qualify for the Quarter-Finals -
Oldham Lions qualify
It is the Lions by a squeak on the NRR as both they and the Cavailers won this week. The Cavaliers only reached 134 thanks to Thunder's Joe Pattison taking 5 for 12 in a great spell but they were able to defend it restricting Thunder to just 104 for 6. Meanwhile the Lions had made 196 with runs throughout the order but Milnrow had a great go at chasing this down falling just 14 short, Adam Yates posted 56 but it was probably opening bowler Muhammad Choudhury's 3 for 17 that probably created the win for Oldham.

Pool 5 - one to qualify for the Quarter-Finals
Still all to play for as the Barging Bears beat second placed Totty Saints by 140 having posted 212 with Ashley Gowers 73 not out and Kyle Ogden 52. Russell Brooks took all 3 Bears wickets to fall with 3 for 31. 2 for 13 for Ashley Gowers, 2 for 14 for Robert Reade and best of the bunch 3 for 14 off 4 for Jack Dagg halted the Saints innings, 

Pool 6 - one to qualify for the Quarter-Finals -
Wythenshawe Lions qualify
The Lions qualify ahead of the Whalley Rangers after a 9 wicket win over the South Westermers. MOhammad Mahfooz had scored a run a ball 44 to keep the innings together but it never looked enough after the Lions openers bowled the first 5 overs for 3 for 16.  The Lions were 0 for 1 but Ryan Booth (32*) and Charlie Comym-Platt (73*) saw the Lions home without further loss.
The Rangers won on Friday by 33 runs at Stretford but it was too late to catch the Lions. Azan Holligan had scored 60 for the Rangers,


Pool 7 - one to qualify for the Quarter-Finals -
Golborne Giants have qualified.
It was the battle of the top two this week with either able to qualify but it was the Giants who won by 5 wickets at Westleigh. Robert Entwistle had scored 58 but had little support as the Lions mustered only 110. Golborne took it steady to win with over 3 overs remaining, Adnan Raees top scoring with 50 off 26 balls.
In the other game this week Adlington set a decent 197-3 in their 20 overs with Saj Khan scoring 105 off 48 balls but Daisy Hill were up for the chase and scoring runs regularly (Michael Chilton 50) won the game on the first ball of the last over.   .

 

 

 

Update 28 June

Pool 1 - one to qualify for the Quarter-Finals
WInton were too strong for the Millers will WIll Driver hitting 4 sixes and 9 in his 94 not out to win by 96. It is not mathematically certain but Winton have the points and the board and will qualify with 1 more point.
Pool 2 - two to qualify for the Quarter-Finals - 
Dukinfield Stags have qualified 
The Stags qualify for the Quarter Finals after their final game which saw them defeat second placed Red Star who now drop to 3rd following Stayleys win at Denton.

It was Denuwaan Dadallage who put Mottram to the sword with 4 6s and 7 4s in his 76 and Joel Morton and Ben Pugh with 3 wickets apiece who carved through the Mottram line-up.  Michael Jones 4 for 22 and Rhys Downend 3 for 8 did most of the damage for the Scorpions with the Daredevils restricted to just 67 and the Scorpions won by 9 wickets in 6 overs, Chris Tipper scoring 54 not out in 27 balls. Stayley and Mottram meet this week as winner takes all for second place and qualification. 
Pool 3 - one to qualify for the Quarter-Finals - Werneth Warrirors have qualified
With everyone still to play one game, the Warriors remain unbeaten from 5 after winning by 5 wickets on the last ball at second placed Austerlands.  Tigers pro Imran Rafiq smashed 94 off 66 including 7 6s but had little support as he carried his bat for the 20 overs, Dildar Shahzad took out the homes side's middle order with 3 for 25. Key for the Warriors was that every batsman chipped in throughout with Darren Longden top scoring on 41.

Oldham West United claimed their second win over the Storm but it wasnt easy - a highly entertaing 513 runs were scored with Storm falling just 13 short. Masna Mahmood led the way for United with 82 but in reply Danny Mulkeen Jnr smashed 111 not out off 53 including 8 6s and 10 4s. Storm can count themselves unlucky to still have no points on the board.
Pool 4 - one to qualify for the Quarter-Finals

All still to play for as the Lions, Thunder and Cavaliers are now all level on 9 points with one game to play after the Cavaliers beat the Lions but with the Lions facing the Rams who have yet to notch a victory and still having the best NRR it looks to be in the Lions hands but we are sure the Cavaliers and the Thunder will be going all out for victory in their head to head this week.

Hasnat Ahmed posted 66 out of the Cavaliers 162 all out and although the Lions only lost 4 wickets they could not maintain the run rate and in the end the Wides count of 14 to 1 made the difference to the game. The Rams took the game to the penultimate ball against the Thunder. Chris Heywood took 3 of the first 4 in his figures of 3 for 22 and opening partner Joe Pattison 2 for 22 as Milnrow never really got going to post 121. Kashif and Walsh saw the Thunder home with either good planning or by the skin of their teeth. 

Pool 5 - one to qualify for the Quarter-Finals
Lots of games still to play here so no clear leader yet. All these games have still to be played, Barging Bears v Eagles, Barging Bears v Rifles, Eagles v Saints, Eagles v Barging Bears, Saints v Rifles.  

This weeks matches saw wins for The Rifles and the Eagles. Rifles posted 124 despite 5 for 18 fromm David Brown for the Barging Bears but in response and despyet 43 from Paul Hopton, the Bears could not keep up with the required rate and ran out of overs. In the other game played the Eagles posted a healthy 169 for the loss of just three as Joe Flitcroft and Alfie Taylor put on an unbeated 135 partnership in 12 overs. the Totty Saints fell 27 short due to sme tight bowling from the Eagles attack.

Pool 6 - one to qualify for the Quarter-Finals

With one game to go it is any one from three in Pool 6, the Lions have a 3 point lead on the Spitfires and the Rangers, and it is all in the Lions hands as they play the South Westerners who have yet to win. Spitfires and Rangers will have to hope for a slip up.

In this weeks games the Rangers pipped the South Westerners with only an over to spare in a low scoring game thanks in the main to Junaid Fakir who saw the Rangers home with an unbeaten 46 from 23 balls. The leaders posted a very handy 173 and it was openers Jason Warner 69(54) and Martin Leonard 52 (27) who paved the way with an opening stand of 80 of 7.4 overs. Spitfores fell 35 short and were all out in the last over as Leonard was also pick of the bowlers with 3 for 25.


Pool 7 - one to qualify for the Quarter-Finals
Giants lead by 3 with with the Tigers and Lions tight behind, but the Giant have to play both their challengers and their are still 4 games scheduled for this week including the Guants v the Lions on the last day.

This week saw the Giants go 3 ahead of the Tigers in what turned out to be an easy 62 run victory with the Giants opener Adnan Raees scoring 100 with 4 6s and 10 4s, until he was out in the last over. Declan Mulvey's 3 for 15 helped keep down the Tigers as they were all out in the 18th over. The Lions had piled on 203 against Daisy Hill as Jameel Stuart smashed 139 off 70 balls with 10 6s and 12 4s to take the game away from the visitors despite 3 for 31 fro William Berry. Muhammad Mobeen carried his bat for 82 off 61 and Daisy Hill lost only 4 wickets in the chase but could not match the required run rate.
