Taqwa Carpets & Beds 40 Overs KO Cup 2014

Final - 14th September 2014

Force Asia CC (191 ao, 39 overs) lost to  East London 1 CC (192-3 32.5 overs)

Oakfield Main Ground

Umpires: Rafiq Patel & Liakat Mir

A cup final played in good spirit between two very good teams. The two teams have met twice before in the T20 finals and the result has been the same.

Force Asia got a shaky start and were 27/4 at one stage but a well paced innings by Sagar Seth (52) Dinesh (24) brought some stability with a 43 run partnership. A further 54 run partnership between Hassan and Sagar and crucial cameos by Ali (26) and Imran (31) got Force Asia to a decent total of 190.

In reply, East London had a strong start with the openers amassing a quick 43 courtesy Kadeem (26) & Samir (22). Force Asia then took 3 quick wickets and had East London 55/3 at one stage. The day thereon, belonged to Imran Makordia and Ismail of East London who took the game away by playing sensibly. Together Imran (72 not out) and Ismail (57 not out) put on a great partnership and gave Force Asia no chance to bounce back.

In the end they chased the target with 7.1 overs to spare.

Premier Division

Congratulations to Mezbaan CC who have been crowned 2014 Premier Division  champions by a mere 3 points.

Unfortnately, the rain ruined the final weekend of fixtures making Mezbaan CC the champions. Its a great achievement for a club that was only promoted to the Premier division only 2 seasons back.

Taking nothing away from the other teams, Mezbaan CC deserved the title after impressive wins against all there nearest rivals in the last months fixtures.

Commirserations to East London 1 CC, who were trying for a historic third title in a row but I'm sure they will come back stronger next season.

Pak Lions United CC join East Fifteen CC in division one next season after a two year stint in the premier division. Pak Lions United CC were let down by their batting and should be good enough to return back to the premier division next season.


Division One

Congratulations to Aztecs CC who have been crowned 2014 Division One champions by a mere 1 point.

Commiserations to East London 2 CC who although won more games in the season lost out on bonus points.

Congratulations to Force Asia CC also who will join Aztecs CC in the premier division next season. All credit to Force Asia CC who are building the club on a solid foundation.

Points Clarification
The GMCL committee have reviewed the recent point raised in the Captains and Secretary meeting about teams bowling first and dismissing there opponents for a low score (i.e Under 125 runs).

After careful consideration, the committee unanimously agreed that the current points system is fair and is designed to make captains think about what action to take when they win/lose the toss. If teams are chasing a low score then they can gain additional bonus points by chasing the score by losing fewer wickets.
