Inter-Cricket League to delay


The Southern Region Inter- Cricket League will be extended by three more weeks to make up for the recent break.

The inter-cricket league returned last month after a month-long break. The league went on recess to allow Muslim players observe Ramadan.

The league’s organising secretary, Saeed Limdawala, said they were planning of concluding the league in three weeks time to make up for the break.


“However, every team appreciated the break and they don’t mind extending the league for some more weeks,” he said.

Limdawala said the league had been competitive as teams were battling to be the first champions.

He also said the final two quarterfinal games would take place on Sunday having concluded the first two set last weekend.


During the first quarterfinal match at Mpingwe Sports Club on Sunday, Right Price Mpingwe Purple beat Kukoma Mpingwe Grey to reach the semifinals.

Kukoma made 152 in 20- over and in response Right Price made those runs in 19-over.

In the second game, favourites MSC Anchor Industry Silver lost to MSC Orange.

Mpingwe Anchor made139 runs in 20-over. Sohel Rustam made 75 runs but he could not save his team. In reply, Orange made those runs in 19.3-over.

The champions of the Inter- Cricket League will receive a trophy and medals. The organizers feel the arrangement would motivate players and teams to play out of passion.
