Prairie Fire vs Western Stallions

With a dominating performance by Henry Osinde (5-28), the Western Stallions made short work of the Prairie Fire on their way to a second consecutive Calvin Clarke Trophy and the CIBC National Cricket League 50 over championship.

Winning the toss and electing to bat, the Praire Fire we pegged back with regularity as the Stallion's seam bowling attack decimated the Fire top and middle orders.  Only Canadian opener Hiral Patel (51 from 81 balls) and a brief cameo from Jatinder Mathura (!7 from 29 balls) showed any resitance as the Fire struggled to 99 from 36.2 overs.

In response, the Stallions started positively however a slew of wickets in the middle order left some work for Usman Limbada's patient 22 from 41 balls and Shazad Bashir (20 from 33) to bring the run chase close.

At the end, the Stallions got over the line in the 31st over for a loss of 6 wickets.  

By virtue of a superior run rate, Stallions (+2.559) edged the Shield (+1.451) to grab the CIBC National Cricket League 50 over title.

Prairie Fire V Pacific Edge

This proved to be a tight match with Pacific Edge pulling off a 17 run victory on the back of executing 4 exciting run outs on the Fire batting line up. Having battled their way to 8-186 led by Jimmy Hansra (41) and  Yannick Ottley (29), the Edge gave themselves a target they could defend. Hiral Patel with 4-23 off 10 overs was the pick of the bowlers
In reply the Fire lost both Ruvindu Gunasekera and Hiral Patel early . Zeeshan Siddiqi then steadied the middle of the innings with a patient 46, but at the end of the day 4 run outs hurt them badly, 
Kjorn Ottley 2-26 off 8.2 only multiple wicket taker as the Fire was dismissed for 169 with 10 balls still remaining.
Central Shield  v Eastern Fury
Having won the toss and bowled the Fury appeared to have made the right decision as they reduced the Shield to 6-49 with a good team bowling display. However a century partnership between Junaid Siddiqui (77) and Harvir Baidwan (38) got the Shield back in the contest as they managed to reach exactly 200. Matthew Webb (2-22), Armaan Kapoor (2-17) and Inderpreet Singh Randhawa (2-28) each picked up 2 wickets.
In reply the Fury were all out in 50  over for 179. Ashish Bagai (40) and Trevin Bastiampillai (38) set angood platform to get the Fury to 2-83 but once both were dismissed the Fury struggled to challenge the target. Salman Nazar 3-36 Kenny Kamyuka  2--16 and Cecil Pervez 2-32 led the way for the Shield with the ball.

Western Stallions V Pacific Edge

This match turned out to be lower scoring thriller after the Western Stallions had appeared in control for much of the day. Having bowled out Pacific Edge for 143 on the back of some excellent pace bowling form Henry Osinde (3-29) and Khurram Chohan (2-11), the Stallions appeared in control as they reached  4-121 with  Shehzad Bachir (60) and Usman Limbada (39)at the crease. But when Manny Aulakh (3-22) took 3 quick wickets  to reduce the Stallions to 8-138, the Pacific Edge had a sniff of victory. But 2 boundaries from Henry Osinde got the Stallions over the line. Early Jimmy Hansra (48) and Damodar Daesrath (28) managed to get the Pacific Edge to 143, but ultimately they did not have enough runs.
Prairie Fire v Eastern Fury
Prairie Fire recorded a comfortable 7 wicket victory over the Eastern Fury on the back of an excellent batting display in chase of 205 for victory. A 99 run partnership between Hiral Patel (70) and Ruvindu Gunasekera (46) set up the chase for the Fire, which was then professionally  finished by an unbeaten partnership between Zeeshan Siddiqi (27*) and T&T’s Jason Mohamed (38*). Earlier Ashish Bagai showed he was still a player of great class in scoring an unbeaten 97 off 107 balls, to get the Fury past 200 when at one stage a much smaller total looked likely. 
Sun, 06/23/2013

On Day 1 of the CIBC National Cricket League, the Western Stallions have produced a dominating perfomance over the Ashish Bagai led Eastern Fury.  Batting first the Stallions registered an imposing 272 run total on the back of a Parveen Saroye century (102*) and strong middle order contributions from Hamza Tariq (43 from 48) and Usman Limbada (57 from 74).  In response the Fury batsmen were pegged back with regularity by a seam attack led by Canadian opener Henry Osinder (3-16) and his battery mate, Stallions skipper Khurram Chohan (1-8).  Parth Desai (3-5) continued the assault with which decimiated the middle order leaving the Fury in shambles.  In the end the Eastern Fury scrapped to 93 runs (27.4 overs) leaving them well short of the required total.


In other action, Rizwan Cheema and the Central Shield held their nerve against Hiral Patel and the Prairie Fire.  Batting first, the Fire ammased a sub par total of 124 with the only noteable batting resistance coming from Winnipeg's Jatinder Mathuru (35 from 43). The lions share of damage came from the arms of Kenny Kamyuka (3-13) and Cecil Pervez (5-23).

In reply, the Central Shield reached the total with some difficulty registering a 2 wicket win.
