First of all I would like to thank each and every one of you who participated in the tournament, and also to those who came to watch the games :). I have not seen so many Pakistanis (45 + atleast), turn up on Saturday morning to play a game that we all love.
Thank you very much team captains for organizing your teams and matches, you made my job alot easier today.
Now, coming to the outcome of the tournament... We were hopeful that we will finish the tournament in a day, but, it was slightly tough (for everyone) to play more than 4 (45 min each) back to back games. Therefore, the Playoff and Final will be played on 28th of April 2018.
Today we saw some really good batting, bowling and fielding performances by many players. After the end of the league games, three out of the 5 games were tied for the first spot with 6 points each. Based on the Head-to-Head rule, we tried to separate them, but, we couldn't. Then, we had to use the Net Run Rate rule to separate them, and after that following is how the league table looks like now:
1. Eagles (W=3, L=1, Pts=6, NRR=3.10)
2. Mast Malang (W=3, L=1, Pts=6, NRR=1.606)
3. Paki Tigers (W=3, L=1, Pts=6, NRR=1.562)
4. A-Team (W=1, L=3, Pts=2, NRR=-2.88)
5. UC PSA (W=0, L=4, Pts=0, NRR=-3.09)
On 28th of April 2018, we will have a Playoff game between Mast Malang and Paki Tigers. Winner will play against Team Eagles in the final.
That's all folks!!!
Thank you once again
