Pakistan Super League 8 Round 1 Summaries
A new season of the enticing series has beckoned around the corner as Pakistan Super League returns to a six-team structure with two new cities marking their locations on the PSL map. Gondrani Jackals will be debuting this season under the tutelage of madcarrot and will be inviting a horde of vegetable puns their way. A rebranding sees West Indies Warriors incorporate the city of Rawalpindi in their quest for a third title. Season 1 Champions Multan Sultans will be making a return this season under Gan's leadership. One of the biggest news from the draft center includes the transfer of manager Maddog40 and his two sides from West Indies to Multan Sultans. Defending champions Karachi Kings will be looking to make it two in a row as Shahzaday11 is back to win yet another PSL title, with three in his cabinet as skipper. Young lad USTADEAZAM will continue to ply his trade with Quetta Gladiators as the team is back for yet another try to win the championship in their eighth season. Will they be able to better their last season's best of runner-ups wherein they smacked West Indies Warriors and Peshawar Zalmi in consecutive playoff games? Speaking of a youth skipper, here is the veteran side of youths from Peshawar in Peshawar Zalmi. A side that has had its fair share of ups and downs since the titular campaign in Season 3 is back with MOD-wmchamps at the helm looking to get their name etched in another shiny trophy. They have lost a long time champion of their side in the transfers in KeepItCool whose two sides have now entered the new franchise and will play for Gondrani Jackals

Round One saw the four franchises from the previous season face each other with a new page being added into the enthralling rivalries that are Karachi Kings versus Peshawar Zalmi and Quetta Gladiators and Rawalpindi West Indies Warriors. Quite aptly, both results were decided by a one-win margin in another entertaining fixture. The two additions from the previous season began the season against each other as the two new skippers were poised against each other. Multan Sultans started their season off well but Gondrani Jackals have been hurt by a loss in their win difference tiebreaker points.

We'll be having a look at the 21 fixtures that occurred over the past week, starting with the Platinum League for each fixture, followed by Diamond >> Gold >> Silver >> YOD 1 >> YOD 2 >> YOD 3 as usual.

Karachi Kings(2)vs Peshawar Zalmi(0) [4-3]

Platinum: Red Devilz (Kaushik) vs Mohito's Mohican XI (aarong affiliate) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6281889
A slow surface was laid out for the fixture and Aussie veteran Preston Western picked the Red Devilz bowling apart with some absolutely fantastic strokes on the way to his ton whilst Colin Finlayson's finesse was on show as his just-above run-a-ball 74 took the Mohito's Mohican XI total to 287. 287 certainly was a score quite above par, opined the experts in the commentary box but Ishwar Gandhi was having none of that. The lad from Delhi came with an aggressive approach and live on the edge philosophy. 10 boundaries include 4 maximums in a fabulous 96 allowed him to take his side to 176 inside 34 overs but his departure set the dominos in motion and the rest of the bats succumbed to a total of 240.

Diamond: Allmanna Idrottsklubben (sheikh03) vs Trevor Francis Tracksuit (aarong) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6281899
When you a lose your top three to questionable leg-befores on a hard deck with a decent amount of true bounce and some decent swing due to the cloudy weather, you just count yourself unlucky in that fixture. Trevor Francis Tracksuit's young superstars will count themselves unfortunate that Graeme Bryne-Jones and Tim Southee got some early swing and bounce and the top three all were declared out, two of them on umpire's call! Emirati keeper Ahmad Kamal scored 42 and the side did reach a total of 155 but that was far too shabby of a total on a hard deck. Tim Southee's fifer won him the player of the match but Amjad Hadi's 64 off 61 balls was a delight to witness.

Gold: Shahzaday11 (Shahzaday11) vs JarlOlaf (Pembina Norseman) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282017
An overrating by Pembina Norseman led to Shazaday11 being awarded the win.

Silver: Baahubali cricket club (dwapar) vs Baffling Bulls (Nee2) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282162
An overrating by Baahubali Cricket Club led to Baffling Bulls being awarded the win.

YOD I: Indian Tigers (PoweRrr) vs Al Khobar Falcons (MOD-wmchamps) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282019
Tufail Mansoor and Jibran Asim started the innings off well on a dry deck but chinaman Kenny Horan ripping through the batting order by picking up four of the six batters really sealed the innings shut. 163 was onboard but Indian Tigers found the chase rather easy with three thirties and a 29 taking them through.

YOD II: All Devils (Adeelch1) vs Wolfberries Too (wolfberries) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282041
An overrating by Wolfberries Too led to All Devils being awarded the win.

YOD III: Khurram39 (Shahzaday11 affiliate) vs Aqrabiyah Antlers (MOD-wmchamps affiliate) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282020
Khurram39 had a tough day out in the park with the bat as the crumbler didn't allow any of their batters to stick through for the long haul and a bunch of starts that were closed in the thirties could only take them to 149. Whilst the chase followed a similar format, Aqrabiyah Antlers never had any required run rate pressure and getting over the line was a tad easier for them.

Quetta Gladiators(2) vs Rawalpindi West Indies Warriors(0) [4-3]

Platinum: Cover point (Btuli) vs Badsey CC (DanAndrew) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/gamedet ... Id=6282004
Azib Barnett's scintillating 95 was overshadowed by a trioka of 65's as three fifties made the chase for Badsey CC easy. Barnett carried Cover point to 240 but wristie Colten Adams was a worthy opponent, running through the order with a fifer. Rick van Eljsinga started with a 65 from just 51 balls and a couple more fifties in the lower middle order did the trick after the wonderous start.

Diamond: Soup A Stars (ZombieRox) vs United XI (quirkilyalive) http://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282001
An overrating by United XI led to Soup A Stars being awarded the win.

Gold: Blade Brakers (drag0on) vs Asterix & Obelix (justforkix) http://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282010
An overrating by Blade Brakers led to Asterix & Obelix being awarded the win.

Silver: green eagle (USTADEAZAM55) vs Lost Legacy (Arthur) http://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282021
An overrating by Lost Legacy led to green eagle being awarded the win.

YOD I: Devil's Angels United (wsx890410) vs Maiden Scotland CC (Maiden50)
A failure to schedule the fixture led to the game being written off as a tie.

YOD II: Afghan=Good (muzammil) vs Crazy eleven (dpk195) http://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282122
On the back of two fifties and two 49's, including a smacking 54 from 43 balls for Mukund Bhatia and Moshin Gaikwad's glass-smattering 49(literally, his six smacked the dressing room window out) from barely 26 balls took the Crazy eleven total to a mammoth 239. It was Quddus Mir's game in the chase. He scored a fine ton in the second innings but he'd have fancied a bit more support. Literally just a bit more. Lets shift to over number 36 of the chase. 49 needed from 24 balls and Mir stood on the non-striker's end at 94*. Rizwan Mazumdar bowled a couple magical balls, cleaning a batter up and breaching his defenses whilst his next ball saw a batter topple over the stumps. Just five off that over and 44 were requisite of the next three. 18 came off over 38 with Mir smacking two fours and reaching his 100. 26 were needed off the next two overs. The next over saw nine come off it but a fielding error from keeper in running out Itmad Rakhman is a haunting still that has been captured. 17 needed off the last over. Quick Nishesh Jaiswal was running in for ball one and Rakhman swiped him for a two. Ball two, he played it toward deep point and ran a couple. Ball three, a yorker, a mistimed attempt at the helicopter shot took one bounce and was fielded by cow's corner but he miffed the throw poorly and allowed another two there. 11 more were needed from three balls. A slower one on the legs, Jaiswal bowled a literal pie and Rakhman swiped him to the right of midwicket and gestured thank you very much, using his bat as a hat and tipping Jaiswal off. The next ball was a wide yorker but Jaiswal could not hide it well enough because Rakhman took a couple steps toward the ball and hit it straight to mid-off. Mid-off jumped high and got his hand on the ball, and whilst he could not catch the ball, he slowed the ball enough that deep cover could field it and turn that obvious four into a three. Four more needed off the last ball and Mir is the man on strike. Jaiswal bowled a ball between good and full length angling toward leg stump, Mir went on one knee and attempted to scoop the lad towards fine leg, using Jaiswal's uncontrolled pace. He did not get the shot a 100% right and began running knowing it wasn't gonna be a four. The ball went awfully high, that by the time it traversed down again, square leg could come in flick the ball back into the ground. A maestro of fielding exhibition, turning another four to a three and ensuring a tie. Two messed up runouts were equalised by two athletic fielding displays on the last two balls and this memorable fixture ended in a tie.

YOD III: Gojra Gators (Hchou1717) vs Crazy eleven 2 (dpk195 affiliate) http://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282146
Keeper Murad Hamid's impressive 56 from 55 balls on a dry pitch alongside skip Yusuf Raghib's run-a-ball 46 took the Gojra Gators total to 187. Wristie Bipul Bhatia had a good time with the ball, picking up four wickets in this 41 run victory.

Multan Sultans(2) vs Gondrani Jackals(0) [5-2]

Platinum: The Royal (Gan) vs Ceylonian Blasters (KeepItCool) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282243
Rabah Hanna led the charge for The Royal with a 89 and Willie Rioli helped the lad with a 36 in the death overs, as a champion total of 222 was posted on a sticky deck with humid weather making things all the more tough for the bats. Roderick Shah picked up a four-fer in the chase to close the innings out for 150 with Ethan Egan scoring nearly half of those many runs.

Diamond: Almost (rkpny) vs Jacksons Barbers (Cjackson94) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282176
An overrating by Jacksons Barbers led to Almost being awarded the win.

Gold: Dead Stroker (100) vs Aggressive Vegetables CC (Madcarrot) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6281905
After wrapping both openers up for under ten, Aggressive Vegetables CC were feeling confident of their position but like me with most vegetables, things sometimes don't end up being as good as they look. (I'm sorry, this is the best vegetable related joke I could come up with right now and I have to, I have to crack a vegetable joke here.) The rest of the batters decided to join hands and combine for a wonderful innings, just like a good vegetable stew (haha, this is fun) as a bunch of 30's took the Dead Stroker total to 200 on a dry deck. Franklyn Heeps led with a wonderful 55 but not enough batters lent him a hand and two bowlers picking four-fers choked the batting enough that they fell 14 runs short and failed to chase the target. Vegetable drinks aren't naturally good choices to chase with, to be fair. (this joke made more sense in my head, but I'm going to leave this embarrassing attempt in still, even the legends need to bomb sometimes).

Silver: ??Cool?? (Pleaseokji) vs AdrenoX Bagadbillas (XUVwalagunda) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282026
Frankyn Pollard resurrected the AdrenoX Bagadbillas innings after ??Cool?? cleaned the top order up on a sticky deck led by two three-fers in this 8-bowler attack. His 45 took the total to 143. Veteran George Martin batted on a different pitch in the chase as he smacked his younger counterparts for 64 runs in 54 balls and the chase was finished with almost 25 overs to go.

YOD I: Silly Mid-Off CC (Maddog40 affiliate) vs Cool Blasters (KeepItCool affiliate) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282244
Cool Blasters were put into bat on a crumbler and their top four struggled to get the innings going but laid a bit of a foundation nonetheless. Irish finisher Patrick Joyce and Cormac Strahan launched the innings off of the rubble that was the foundation. A 50 from just 39 balls for Patrick with only four four's was an exemplary innings that might as well be used to teach the young lads the skill of maneuvering the field. 23 from 24 balls for Strahan was another fine example of giving the guy having a good day as many balls as you can. 9/3 was not a good start for Silly Mid-Off CC in a chase of 171 but two forties in the middle order certainly kept them in the game. Unfortunately both bats in the partnership got out one after the other. Silly Mid-Off CC were 98/5, needing 73 runs from 57 balls. A wicket each in overs 34 and 35 and the hole got a bit deeper, a bit tougher to get out of. 45 needed in 5 overs and wristie Duddy bowls a 5 run over, making it 40 off 4 overs. Finger spinner Bill Colgan was struck for a four the next over and the equation read 32 from 18 balls. Clement Asgarali hit another four in over 38 and a maximum in the penultimate over, taking the equation down to 7 from the last over after there were two runout chances gone begging in the penultimate over as well. Medo Gavin Hogan was flicked for a single ball one. He scored a dot ball two and the equation became six from four balls. Asgarali missed the next ball as his slog went unconnected but Asgarali wished to steal a bye and was run out after Charles refused the single after Asgarali was already too far down the track. 3 came off the next two balls as the new bat missed his first ball, and the equation read 3 from 1 ball with Charles on strike. Charles hit the slower bouncer toward third man, trying to go over the fielder inside the 30-yard circle, but unfortunately for him, the slower one didn't have enough pace to reach the fence and the bats could only steal one and were runout going for the second. Cool Blasters barely sneaked a win in a game that they would have checked in their list with ten overs to go. A good effort, but it fell short unfortunately for West Indian lads in Silly Mid-Off CC against the Irish lads for Cool Blasters.

YOD II: SBClub (rkpny affiliate) vs Ball Busters (Gratus) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282120
Pierre Rudolph led the charge with a 89-ball 83 and Korey Burke added 30 off 29 balls at the end as Ball Busters posted 215 on a slow surface. A fifty for Arjuna Kumara and a couple of twenties in the chase went in vain when the lower order of SBClub was cleaned in 23 runs from 162/5 to 186 ao.

YOD III: Silly Mid-On CC (Maddog40) vs Mumbai Monkey (Dietrich) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6281874
Manager Maddog40 seems to have served us real thrillers here as his main seemed to have made up for his affiliate's 1 run loss with a 3 run win. Silly Mid-On CC were batting first and Rohan Jan scored 87 with barely 2 fours and 2 sixes coming from boundaries. Some support from the other lads took the score to 237, which would be a fine total on a crumbler most days but Boyd Hitchcox has already previously been quoted saying that he doesn't believe in par scores for the pitches. He came in with the attitude of "why not?" going for all the wonky shots and his confidence sailed him through to a 76 and his side to a 111 in 25 overs. 125 were needed from the next 14 overs and it was Sauce Blackwood who was delivered some saucy pies, strawberry, blueberry, you name the flavor. The bowling side looked like aggressive vegetable farmers serving up all these ingredients for a beautiful saucy pie. (I need to give up on these vegetable jokes man). Wickets kept falling but Blackwood was a brick (should've said wood and not brick, c'mon quirkily) and stood in the middle. Mumbai Monkey needed just 48 from the next four and had a real chance at the chase. Ten came off the first of the remaining four and 13 off the next with Blackwood hitting a mile-long six. 25 needed from 12 balls and Mumbai Monkey lost a wicket, but they were thanking their stars it wasn't Blackwood. 24 needed from ten and the new bat Burke flicked a four off the last ball of the penultimate over. 18 needed from 6 balls. Tony Eligon's medium pace on show. Blackwood runs three as he made the error of hitting the shot toward square leg, the longest boundary of the ground. Burke hit the ball to just the right of the keeper, who missed it and the two bats could run three as the ball almost travelled to the fence. 1 for Blackwood ball three, 2 for Burke the next and Burke stole a single on the fifth. Blackwood on strike for the last ball but Mumbai Monkey needed 8 off the final ball. Eligon did not try anything fancy, bowled wicket-to-wicket and was struck for a four but he was just happy not bowling a wide and confirming a three run win for his side.

Round One over and we've had a fantastic set of games. A few overratings which would hopefully decrease next round but they are an essential part of PSL certainly and will be more game-changing as the season continues. Early lead for Multan Sultans whilst Karachi Kings and Quetta Gladiators have both stole a win as well. Next round sees Multan Sultans play Rawalpindi whilst Quetta face Karachi and Peshawar will face the side looking to get up in Gondrani Jackals. Atleast one of Peshawar and Gondrani will end with some points on the board.

Here is the points table:

Round 3 Day 1 Update

Karachi Kings (0-2) Rawalpindi West Indies Warriors

Badsey CC (WIW) won by 10 wickets
Asterix & Obelix (WIW) have been awarded the win due to opponent overrating (215.5k>215k)

Multan Sultans (3-1) Peshawar Zalmi

The Royal (MS) won by 93 runs
Almost (MS) won by 3 runs
Silly Mid-Off CC (MS) won by 8 wickets

Ceylonian Blasters (GJ) won by 16 runs
Soup A Stars (QG) won by 200 runs
green eagle (QG) won by 30 runs
Afghan=Good (QG) won by 8 wickets

Rawalpindi have started off well but Karachi will be looking to bounce back over the weekend, while Multan have almost secured another win as they just need 1 more win from the remaining 3 matches but wolfberries has managed to keep Peshawar in the game thanks to his opponent overrating.
A Peshawar loss will definitely take them out of contention for the top 2 spots.
Gondrani are also just hanging in there for this round as they need to win all 3 of their remaining matches to secure the win, but they will remain in contention for a top 2 spot even if they lose.

Pakistan Super League 8 Round 2 Summaries
Round 2 saw the defending champions Karachi Kings extend their lead with back-to-back wins. Gondrani Jackals and Rawalpindi West Indies Warriors picked their first points as well whilst Peshawar Zalmi landed themselves in a precarious position after a couple losses in a row. Quetta Gladiators and Multan Sultans had their first taste of defeat as 4 teams finished the round with a win and a loss whilst Karachi Kings established their dominance with the unbeaten run thus far.

Karachi Kings(4) vs Quetta Gladiators(2) [4-3]

Platinum: Red Devilz (Kaushik) vs Cover point (Btuli) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282298
A hard deck on a windy day presented a beautiful setting for the Cover point bats to have a solid outing after they opted to bat first. Starting with a 11-boundary ton for Marshawn Lynch, Rick Fidock and Irma Gerd contributed with eighties at strike rates of over a hundred as well, with a 12-ball 26 from David Kamungeremu totalling the score to a mammoth 392. Despite Debasis Mayekar's ton, the chase was never on and the two Lynch's picking three wickets each was the nail to the coffin.

Diamond: Allmanna Idrottsklubben (sheikh03) vs Soup A Stars (ZombieRox) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282529
Attie van Deventer's seventy alongside a couple forties allowed Soup A Stars to get to 263 in their innings on a glossy green deck. Indian batter Atul Ghosh led the chase with a century whilst keeper-batter Sookval Mohamed played a fine support act to finish the crunch chase with 7 balls to spare.

Gold: Shahzaday11 (Shahzaday11) vs Blade Brakers (drag0on) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282580
A flat deck during a heatwave was a hellish setting for the bowlers and aptly, Shahzaday11 opted to bat first. Their bats reaped the rewards of the setting. 2 fifties and Farrukh Umair's ton took the side to a 318-run total. Antoni Simister scored a 91-ball ton but the continuous fall of wickets with a Rizwan Aslam 4-fer in there saw Blade Brakers get bowled out 41 runs short of the target.

Silver: Baahubali cricket club (dwapar) vs green eagle (USTADEAZAM55) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282650
Baahubali Cricket Club's batting effort was led by a couple seventies from the blades of Pradnesh Ghai and Asikrishna Saraswathi whilst Archie Garratt's exploits took the total to 285 before they were eventually bowled out with 2 medium pacers sharing nine wickets in Sartaj Umar picking five and Philip Parnell grabbing 4 wickets. green eagle did not start their innings well but their middle order looked determined. Ayaaz Kaneria led the effort with a 88 but Vikas Jadav picked him out in the final over and the chase fell eight short.

YOD I: Indian Tigers (PoweRrr) vs Devil's Angels United (wsx890410) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282636
After losing an early wicket, Indian Tigers had two half-centurions bring their innings back on track. A century stand was seeing them well set for a decent finish on a slow surface but a collapse took them down as they slid down from 127/2 to 153/8 in 4 overs. But they weren't sad for long as their two tailenders combined to get 53 from 48 balls and took the total over 200. The chase from Devil's Angels United looked disheartened and beaten after the two tailenders' heist and they were cleaned up for a 122 with no notable batters being able to play a big innings.

YOD II: All Devils (Adeelch1) vs Afghan=Good (muzammil) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282653
All Devils had a 163 onboard on a sticky surface with Jamie Fletcher's fifty leading the charge. Fazal Mukhtar picked up 4 wickets as well, including the prized wicket of Fletcher. The chase did not start off in an ideal manner for either side really, as Afghan=Good lost a couple wickets within the first ten but Murad Hamza arrived and changed the flow of the tide. His 64* from 72 balls took Afghan=Good home with 30 balls to spare.

YOD III: Khurram39 (Shahzaday11 affiliate) vs Gojra Gators (Hchou1717) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282619
236 runs were scored in the first innings by Khurram39 as Angus Hannah scored 56 from 55 balls and was helped by some thirties and forties. The lack of a longer innings by any bat still had the total below run-a-ball. A couple of sixties in the top three set the chase up well and experienced finisher and skipper Yusuf Raghib took care of getting the side over the line with nine balls to spare.

Rawalpindi West Indies Warriors(2) vs Multan Sultans(2) [4-3]

Platinum: Badsey CC (DanAndrew) vs The Royal (Gan) http://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282297
A sticky pitch on a hot day was the setting for this Platinum fixture. Veteran Nasir Rahim's 75 was the highlight from the first innings as it took The Royal to a quality total of a 198. Brit Legend Ambrose Fellows, who wages a cool little 29.5k scored a determined 61* but O'Neil Fitzpatrick's fifer and Ruwan Thurston's 4 scalps ran him out of partners. The two finger spinners took out all his teammates piece after piece till the lad was left stranded alone with no partners and the target still 43 runs away.

Diamond: United XI (quirkilyalive) vs Almost (rkpny) http://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282404
An overrating by Almost led to United XI being awarded the win.

Gold: Asterix & Obelix (justforkix) vs Dead Stroker (100) http://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282405
Emmett Cook's ton on a hard deck and a humid day was a memorable one as it took the Dead Stroker score to 257 despite Younis Waqar's four scalps. Salman Turk also contributed with a 36-ball fifty wherein he struck 2 fours and 2 sixes as a picturesque finish to the innings. The top three failed to have a good day for Asterix & Obelix but Jayden Daniel's 10-boundary 113* and skipper Gavin Lyons' at a strike rate of 130 in just 73 balls, not only brought them back into the game but the 210-run stand got them a win.

Silver: Lost Legacy (Arthur) vs ??Cool?? (Pleaseokji) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282651
Lost Legacy had a day where they could do no wrong and ??Cool?? had nothing go their way. A total of 303 was established with three different half-centurions in the tally for Lost Legacy. This was followed by all their bowlers having a successful day with the only decent batter for ??Cool?? being their keeper who came in at 8, by when the game was all but finished. A 119-run loss is how it was recorded and that showcases the margin between the quality of cricket the two sides were able to present on field that day.

YOD I: Maiden Scotland CC (Maiden50) vs Silly Mid-Off CC (Maddog40 affiliate) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282652
Daren Charles had a fantastic day at the top of the order for Maiden Scotland CC with his half-century but the other batters did not have equivalent performances to brag about on their report cards with golden days for bowlers Arthur Alfred and Clement Asgarali. Silly Mid-Off CC started the chase with fifties for both their openers but that blistering start was blown away by them losing five wickets in little to no while. Rupert Moses impressed by running through the middle order but unfortunate for him that Arthur Alfred continued his impressive day with the ball earlier in the evening with the bat as well as the thirty he contributed took his side over the line with just seven balls to spare.

YOD II: crazy eleven (dpk195) vs SBClub (rkpny affiliate) http://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282392
An overrating by crazy eleven led to SBClub being awarded the win.

YOD III: Crazy Eleven 2 (dpk195 affiliate) vs Silly Mid-On CC (Maddog40) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282645
255 runs were scored by Crazy Eleven 2 on an uneven deck and in windy weather with keeper Tahir Mazin scoring an exemplary ton batting at five. 43 from 23 balls for Tatye Salpietro helping the total upwards. The Silly Mid-On CC innings wasn't one that was as ideal with most of the top order failing to contribute a big innings. Two fifties in the lower order were quality but were not enough as they went on to get to an eventual 29-run loss.

Gondrani Jackals(2) vs Peshawar Zalmi(0) [4.5-2.5]

Platinum: Ceylonian Blasters (KeepItCool) vs Mohito's Mohican XI (aarong affiliate) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282519
West Indian batter William Linton scored a fifty on a sticky deck whilst the rest of the order contributed with a few thirties in there but Gregory Dudgeon's four wicket haul saw Ceylonian Blasters be cleaned up for 224 in their innings. The chase did not start well for Mohito's Mohican XI with single-digit figures for the top three but Bermudan Henry Garraway came in at four and scored 110 runs as his unbeaten innings took the side over the line with 19 balls to spare.

Diamond: Jacksons Barbers (Cjackson94) vs Trevor Francis Tracksuit (aarong) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282423
Beginning with Lance Brasher's ninety up at the top of the order and a couple of fifties further down the order with Wade Inverarity striking a 54* at 16, Jacksons Barbers had 298 onboard. Their opponents did not have equal time during the chase. Rama Kumble picked a fifer as Saffer Variant was their only half-centurion. Another game of too big a score causing a bit too much pressure in the chase as we were just heading toward an inevitable loss for much of the last quarter of the game after the drinks break in the second innings, wondering if it would be another staple of a game or will we witness a miracle from a hero, Variant in this here case? It was the staple as Jacksons Barbers finished victorious by 48 runs.

Gold: Aggressive Vegetables CC(madcarrot) vs Pembina Norseman (JarlOlaf) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282302
Oh, the classic tale of a veteran on one of his final ventures and a young lad coming through the ranks combining and playing a marvel, a gem of a partnership. Aggressive Vegetables CC's Ofisa Crockett struck a massive ton whilst young lad Isaiah House showcased his skills with a fine 83 as well as the two had an unbeaten 173 run stand. 335 was onboard on the dry deck and Pembina Norseman top three departed for scores inside twenty. Too big a total, openers go cheaply looking to maximise the powerplay and the rest of the order seem to have a clueless day, trying to find the light of resurgence. It was an eventual 59-run loss but the game did seem as if it slip away the moment none of the top three could stick around and establish a dominating knock.

Silver: AdrenoX Bagadbillas (XUVwalagunda) vs Baffling Bulls (Nee2) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282594
Well, the staple continues. Reece McLoughlin scores a fine ton, Eamonn Clarke hits 76, Franklyn Pollard scores a blistering finish of 27 runs at a strike rate of 245 and AdrenoX Bagadbillas had 344 onboard after 50 overs on the hard deck. Mike McCoy scored a fifty but that was all notable from the Baffling Bulls innings in another win of the staple style for Gondrani Jackals.

YOD I: Cool Blasters (KeepItCool affiliate) vs Al Khobar Falcons (MOD-wmchamps) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282388
Haji Sheikh started the day off with an away swinger to right-handed batter Evan Rooney. A ball left and collected by the keeper. A peaceful start to what was about to be up next as the day went ahead. Ball two, a little fuller but pretty much the same stuff, Rooney goes for the drive and gets an edge straight to slip. The first innings was an Andrew Moriarty fifty and a some smaller contributions from a few other lads as they had a 179 onboard in the first innings. The chase had a poor start as the top order's highest contributor was a mere 39 with tens and twenties for the rest. Anil Rauf came in at seven at 115/5 with 65 runs needed from the next 14 overs. Rauf combined well with the tailenders but the wickets kept falling. Al Khobar Falcons were 134/7 after 31 overs, needing 46 in 54 balls. Rauf kept the scores ticking as a 21 run stand brewed but the eighth wicket fell as 25 were still needed from 24 balls. 1 and 3 came off the next two as 21 were still requisite from 12 balls. Rauf ran two of the first ball, and then stole a three from the next. 16 were needed from ten further deliveries and it was the tailender on strike. Sheikh had a two from the next ball and exchanged strikes off the next. Rauf tried to go for the boundary the next ball but missed and kept his strike off the last ball, leaving 12 more needed in six balls. Gavin Hogan's medium pace was the difference between the two sides. A full length ball outside the off stump was swiped for a couple to deep cover by Rauf. A slower yorker next ball, was swept to fine leg for a couple more. 8 needed of 4 now and Hogan changes his strategy and goes for a quicker bouncer but Rauf advanced down the ground and pulled one straight to cow's corner to a couple. The next was another yorker that Rauf barely got under as mid-wicket fielded the ball inside the thirty yard circle. 5 needed from 2 balls and Sheikh had another yorker to get under but he eeked it out to cover and gave strike back to Rauf. 4 to win off the next ball. Hogan changed fields, the leg-side fielders were brought inside the circle as the 5 lads outside the 30 yard circle were placed at a pretty square fine leg, a very fine third man, a fielder at square, a deep cover and a long off. He was going to bowl a ball wide of the off stump. Rauf stood on the off stump and walked down and off as Hogan came into his run-up. A wide yorker that Rauf turned into a low-fulltoss that he tried his hardest to slog toward midwicket on the leg side, but a masterful dive by Emmet Duddy deflected the ball square. Fine Leg got to the ball and so did the player at what was a squarer mid-wicket but inside the circle, but not exactly a square leg. The batters had been able to exchange two by then and stole a three as the two fielders were puzzled about who was going for the ball. They were grateful it still wasn't a four but a runout chance gone begging for a memorable tied fixture.

YOD II: Ball Busters (Gratus) vs Wolfberries Too (wolfberries) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282409
A top order implosion for Ball Busters with 25 coming in total of the top five batters started the debacle. But Peter Sekonyela at six and Gihahn Bayly at nine saved the innings with a couple thirties. Julien Callaway hit a fifty in the chase to start the innings off. The middle order had a rather poor day but Alex Iceton in the lower middle order added 21 runs. Iceton did not have a consistent partners as the wickets kept falling. The required rate was lower than the scoring rate but the tailenders could not stay put. 7 were needed in 2 overs with a wicket in hand when Iceton took a three and gave strike to the number 11. There was a dot that was followed by a two off the next couple balls. 1 run needed, 1 wicket in hand, skipper Benjamin Whitfield playing to a field closed in on him with just one lad outside the 30-yard circle. He flicks the ball to mid-wicket and sets out for a single. Iceton responded to the call and ran as well. Whitfield dove but fell short to a direct hit and Ball Busters took the win by a singular run!

YOD III: Mumbai Monkey (Dietrich) vs Aqrabiyah Antlers (MOD-wmchamps affiliate) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282313
236 runs were scored in the first innings on a flat deck with Deron Collymore leading the effort for Mumbai Monkey. Sahir Riaz and Muhajid Jan contributed fifties in the chase. Nazmi Rashid contributed toward the end of the innings with a 42 in 39 balls as he took Aqrabiyah Antlers home in the very final over.

Another interesting set of 21 fixtures with far less overratings as Round 2 finishes with the points table in the following shape:

Pakistan Super League 8 Round 2 Summaries
Round 2 saw the defending champions Karachi Kings extend their lead with back-to-back wins. Gondrani Jackals and Rawalpindi West Indies Warriors picked their first points as well whilst Peshawar Zalmi landed themselves in a precarious position after a couple losses in a row. Quetta Gladiators and Multan Sultans had their first taste of defeat as 4 teams finished the round with a win and a loss whilst Karachi Kings established their dominance with the unbeaten run thus far.

Karachi Kings(4) vs Quetta Gladiators(2) [4-3]

Platinum: Red Devilz (Kaushik) vs Cover point (Btuli) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282298
A hard deck on a windy day presented a beautiful setting for the Cover point bats to have a solid outing after they opted to bat first. Starting with a 11-boundary ton for Marshawn Lynch, Rick Fidock and Irma Gerd contributed with eighties at strike rates of over a hundred as well, with a 12-ball 26 from David Kamungeremu totalling the score to a mammoth 392. Despite Debasis Mayekar's ton, the chase was never on and the two Lynch's picking three wickets each was the nail to the coffin.

Diamond: Allmanna Idrottsklubben (sheikh03) vs Soup A Stars (ZombieRox) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282529
Attie van Deventer's seventy alongside a couple forties allowed Soup A Stars to get to 263 in their innings on a glossy green deck. Indian batter Atul Ghosh led the chase with a century whilst keeper-batter Sookval Mohamed played a fine support act to finish the crunch chase with 7 balls to spare.

Gold: Shahzaday11 (Shahzaday11) vs Blade Brakers (drag0on) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282580
A flat deck during a heatwave was a hellish setting for the bowlers and aptly, Shahzaday11 opted to bat first. Their bats reaped the rewards of the setting. 2 fifties and Farrukh Umair's ton took the side to a 318-run total. Antoni Simister scored a 91-ball ton but the continuous fall of wickets with a Rizwan Aslam 4-fer in there saw Blade Brakers get bowled out 41 runs short of the target.

Silver: Baahubali cricket club (dwapar) vs green eagle (USTADEAZAM55) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282650
Baahubali Cricket Club's batting effort was led by a couple seventies from the blades of Pradnesh Ghai and Asikrishna Saraswathi whilst Archie Garratt's exploits took the total to 285 before they were eventually bowled out with 2 medium pacers sharing nine wickets in Sartaj Umar picking five and Philip Parnell grabbing 4 wickets. green eagle did not start their innings well but their middle order looked determined. Ayaaz Kaneria led the effort with a 88 but Vikas Jadav picked him out in the final over and the chase fell eight short.

YOD I: Indian Tigers (PoweRrr) vs Devil's Angels United (wsx890410) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282636
After losing an early wicket, Indian Tigers had two half-centurions bring their innings back on track. A century stand was seeing them well set for a decent finish on a slow surface but a collapse took them down as they slid down from 127/2 to 153/8 in 4 overs. But they weren't sad for long as their two tailenders combined to get 53 from 48 balls and took the total over 200. The chase from Devil's Angels United looked disheartened and beaten after the two tailenders' heist and they were cleaned up for a 122 with no notable batters being able to play a big innings.

YOD II: All Devils (Adeelch1) vs Afghan=Good (muzammil) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282653
All Devils had a 163 onboard on a sticky surface with Jamie Fletcher's fifty leading the charge. Fazal Mukhtar picked up 4 wickets as well, including the prized wicket of Fletcher. The chase did not start off in an ideal manner for either side really, as Afghan=Good lost a couple wickets within the first ten but Murad Hamza arrived and changed the flow of the tide. His 64* from 72 balls took Afghan=Good home with 30 balls to spare.

YOD III: Khurram39 (Shahzaday11 affiliate) vs Gojra Gators (Hchou1717) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282619
236 runs were scored in the first innings by Khurram39 as Angus Hannah scored 56 from 55 balls and was helped by some thirties and forties. The lack of a longer innings by any bat still had the total below run-a-ball. A couple of sixties in the top three set the chase up well and experienced finisher and skipper Yusuf Raghib took care of getting the side over the line with nine balls to spare.

Rawalpindi West Indies Warriors(2) vs Multan Sultans(2) [4-3]

Platinum: Badsey CC (DanAndrew) vs The Royal (Gan) http://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282297
A sticky pitch on a hot day was the setting for this Platinum fixture. Veteran Nasir Rahim's 75 was the highlight from the first innings as it took The Royal to a quality total of a 198. Brit Legend Ambrose Fellows, who wages a cool little 29.5k scored a determined 61* but O'Neil Fitzpatrick's fifer and Ruwan Thurston's 4 scalps ran him out of partners. The two finger spinners took out all his teammates piece after piece till the lad was left stranded alone with no partners and the target still 43 runs away.

Diamond: United XI (quirkilyalive) vs Almost (rkpny) http://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282404
An overrating by Almost led to United XI being awarded the win.

Gold: Asterix & Obelix (justforkix) vs Dead Stroker (100) http://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282405
Emmett Cook's ton on a hard deck and a humid day was a memorable one as it took the Dead Stroker score to 257 despite Younis Waqar's four scalps. Salman Turk also contributed with a 36-ball fifty wherein he struck 2 fours and 2 sixes as a picturesque finish to the innings. The top three failed to have a good day for Asterix & Obelix but Jayden Daniel's 10-boundary 113* and skipper Gavin Lyons' at a strike rate of 130 in just 73 balls, not only brought them back into the game but the 210-run stand got them a win.

Silver: Lost Legacy (Arthur) vs ??Cool?? (Pleaseokji) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282651
Lost Legacy had a day where they could do no wrong and ??Cool?? had nothing go their way. A total of 303 was established with three different half-centurions in the tally for Lost Legacy. This was followed by all their bowlers having a successful day with the only decent batter for ??Cool?? being their keeper who came in at 8, by when the game was all but finished. A 119-run loss is how it was recorded and that showcases the margin between the quality of cricket the two sides were able to present on field that day.

YOD I: Maiden Scotland CC (Maiden50) vs Silly Mid-Off CC (Maddog40 affiliate) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282652
Daren Charles had a fantastic day at the top of the order for Maiden Scotland CC with his half-century but the other batters did not have equivalent performances to brag about on their report cards with golden days for bowlers Arthur Alfred and Clement Asgarali. Silly Mid-Off CC started the chase with fifties for both their openers but that blistering start was blown away by them losing five wickets in little to no while. Rupert Moses impressed by running through the middle order but unfortunate for him that Arthur Alfred continued his impressive day with the ball earlier in the evening with the bat as well as the thirty he contributed took his side over the line with just seven balls to spare.

YOD II: crazy eleven (dpk195) vs SBClub (rkpny affiliate) http://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282392
An overrating by crazy eleven led to SBClub being awarded the win.

YOD III: Crazy Eleven 2 (dpk195 affiliate) vs Silly Mid-On CC (Maddog40) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282645
255 runs were scored by Crazy Eleven 2 on an uneven deck and in windy weather with keeper Tahir Mazin scoring an exemplary ton batting at five. 43 from 23 balls for Tatye Salpietro helping the total upwards. The Silly Mid-On CC innings wasn't one that was as ideal with most of the top order failing to contribute a big innings. Two fifties in the lower order were quality but were not enough as they went on to get to an eventual 29-run loss.

Gondrani Jackals(2) vs Peshawar Zalmi(0) [4.5-2.5]

Platinum: Ceylonian Blasters (KeepItCool) vs Mohito's Mohican XI (aarong affiliate) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282519
West Indian batter William Linton scored a fifty on a sticky deck whilst the rest of the order contributed with a few thirties in there but Gregory Dudgeon's four wicket haul saw Ceylonian Blasters be cleaned up for 224 in their innings. The chase did not start well for Mohito's Mohican XI with single-digit figures for the top three but Bermudan Henry Garraway came in at four and scored 110 runs as his unbeaten innings took the side over the line with 19 balls to spare.

Diamond: Jacksons Barbers (Cjackson94) vs Trevor Francis Tracksuit (aarong) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282423
Beginning with Lance Brasher's ninety up at the top of the order and a couple of fifties further down the order with Wade Inverarity striking a 54* at 16, Jacksons Barbers had 298 onboard. Their opponents did not have equal time during the chase. Rama Kumble picked a fifer as Saffer Variant was their only half-centurion. Another game of too big a score causing a bit too much pressure in the chase as we were just heading toward an inevitable loss for much of the last quarter of the game after the drinks break in the second innings, wondering if it would be another staple of a game or will we witness a miracle from a hero, Variant in this here case? It was the staple as Jacksons Barbers finished victorious by 48 runs.

Gold: Aggressive Vegetables CC(madcarrot) vs Pembina Norseman (JarlOlaf) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282302
Oh, the classic tale of a veteran on one of his final ventures and a young lad coming through the ranks combining and playing a marvel, a gem of a partnership. Aggressive Vegetables CC's Ofisa Crockett struck a massive ton whilst young lad Isaiah House showcased his skills with a fine 83 as well as the two had an unbeaten 173 run stand. 335 was onboard on the dry deck and Pembina Norseman top three departed for scores inside twenty. Too big a total, openers go cheaply looking to maximise the powerplay and the rest of the order seem to have a clueless day, trying to find the light of resurgence. It was an eventual 59-run loss but the game did seem as if it slip away the moment none of the top three could stick around and establish a dominating knock.

Silver: AdrenoX Bagadbillas (XUVwalagunda) vs Baffling Bulls (Nee2) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282594
Well, the staple continues. Reece McLoughlin scores a fine ton, Eamonn Clarke hits 76, Franklyn Pollard scores a blistering finish of 27 runs at a strike rate of 245 and AdrenoX Bagadbillas had 344 onboard after 50 overs on the hard deck. Mike McCoy scored a fifty but that was all notable from the Baffling Bulls innings in another win of the staple style for Gondrani Jackals.

YOD I: Cool Blasters (KeepItCool affiliate) vs Al Khobar Falcons (MOD-wmchamps) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282388

Karachi, Rawalpindi, and Quetta will secure the top 3 spots if they all win this week as they will end up 6 points each while the rest will have 2 points each and will be fighting for the final spot.

However, if Karachi, Rawalpindi, and Quetta all lose this round, then we will see all 6 franchises with 4 points each on the table.

Pakistan Super League 8 Round 2 Summaries
Round 2 saw the defending champions Karachi Kings extend their lead with back-to-back wins. Gondrani Jackals and Rawalpindi West Indies Warriors picked their first points as well whilst Peshawar Zalmi landed themselves in a precarious position after a couple losses in a row. Quetta Gladiators and Multan Sultans had their first taste of defeat as 4 teams finished the round with a win and a loss whilst Karachi Kings established their dominance with the unbeaten run thus far.

Karachi Kings(4) vs Quetta Gladiators(2) [4-3]

Platinum: Red Devilz (Kaushik) vs Cover point (Btuli) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282298
A hard deck on a windy day presented a beautiful setting for the Cover point bats to have a solid outing after they opted to bat first. Starting with a 11-boundary ton for Marshawn Lynch, Rick Fidock and Irma Gerd contributed with eighties at strike rates of over a hundred as well, with a 12-ball 26 from David Kamungeremu totalling the score to a mammoth 392. Despite Debasis Mayekar's ton, the chase was never on and the two Lynch's picking three wickets each was the nail to the coffin.

Diamond: Allmanna Idrottsklubben (sheikh03) vs Soup A Stars (ZombieRox) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282529
Attie van Deventer's seventy alongside a couple forties allowed Soup A Stars to get to 263 in their innings on a glossy green deck. Indian batter Atul Ghosh led the chase with a century whilst keeper-batter Sookval Mohamed played a fine support act to finish the crunch chase with 7 balls to spare.

Gold: Shahzaday11 (Shahzaday11) vs Blade Brakers (drag0on) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282580
A flat deck during a heatwave was a hellish setting for the bowlers and aptly, Shahzaday11 opted to bat first. Their bats reaped the rewards of the setting. 2 fifties and Farrukh Umair's ton took the side to a 318-run total. Antoni Simister scored a 91-ball ton but the continuous fall of wickets with a Rizwan Aslam 4-fer in there saw Blade Brakers get bowled out 41 runs short of the target.

Silver: Baahubali cricket club (dwapar) vs green eagle (USTADEAZAM55) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282650
Baahubali Cricket Club's batting effort was led by a couple seventies from the blades of Pradnesh Ghai and Asikrishna Saraswathi whilst Archie Garratt's exploits took the total to 285 before they were eventually bowled out with 2 medium pacers sharing nine wickets in Sartaj Umar picking five and Philip Parnell grabbing 4 wickets. green eagle did not start their innings well but their middle order looked determined. Ayaaz Kaneria led the effort with a 88 but Vikas Jadav picked him out in the final over and the chase fell eight short.

YOD I: Indian Tigers (PoweRrr) vs Devil's Angels United (wsx890410) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282636
After losing an early wicket, Indian Tigers had two half-centurions bring their innings back on track. A century stand was seeing them well set for a decent finish on a slow surface but a collapse took them down as they slid down from 127/2 to 153/8 in 4 overs. But they weren't sad for long as their two tailenders combined to get 53 from 48 balls and took the total over 200. The chase from Devil's Angels United looked disheartened and beaten after the two tailenders' heist and they were cleaned up for a 122 with no notable batters being able to play a big innings.

YOD II: All Devils (Adeelch1) vs Afghan=Good (muzammil) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282653
All Devils had a 163 onboard on a sticky surface with Jamie Fletcher's fifty leading the charge. Fazal Mukhtar picked up 4 wickets as well, including the prized wicket of Fletcher. The chase did not start off in an ideal manner for either side really, as Afghan=Good lost a couple wickets within the first ten but Murad Hamza arrived and changed the flow of the tide. His 64* from 72 balls took Afghan=Good home with 30 balls to spare.

YOD III: Khurram39 (Shahzaday11 affiliate) vs Gojra Gators (Hchou1717) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282619
236 runs were scored in the first innings by Khurram39 as Angus Hannah scored 56 from 55 balls and was helped by some thirties and forties. The lack of a longer innings by any bat still had the total below run-a-ball. A couple of sixties in the top three set the chase up well and experienced finisher and skipper Yusuf Raghib took care of getting the side over the line with nine balls to spare.

Rawalpindi West Indies Warriors(2) vs Multan Sultans(2) [4-3]

Platinum: Badsey CC (DanAndrew) vs The Royal (Gan) http://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282297
A sticky pitch on a hot day was the setting for this Platinum fixture. Veteran Nasir Rahim's 75 was the highlight from the first innings as it took The Royal to a quality total of a 198. Brit Legend Ambrose Fellows, who wages a cool little 29.5k scored a determined 61* but O'Neil Fitzpatrick's fifer and Ruwan Thurston's 4 scalps ran him out of partners. The two finger spinners took out all his teammates piece after piece till the lad was left stranded alone with no partners and the target still 43 runs away.

Diamond: United XI (quirkilyalive) vs Almost (rkpny) http://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282404
An overrating by Almost led to United XI being awarded the win.

Gold: Asterix & Obelix (justforkix) vs Dead Stroker (100) http://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282405
Emmett Cook's ton on a hard deck and a humid day was a memorable one as it took the Dead Stroker score to 257 despite Younis Waqar's four scalps. Salman Turk also contributed with a 36-ball fifty wherein he struck 2 fours and 2 sixes as a picturesque finish to the innings. The top three failed to have a good day for Asterix & Obelix but Jayden Daniel's 10-boundary 113* and skipper Gavin Lyons' at a strike rate of 130 in just 73 balls, not only brought them back into the game but the 210-run stand got them a win.

Silver: Lost Legacy (Arthur) vs ??Cool?? (Pleaseokji) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282651
Lost Legacy had a day where they could do no wrong and ??Cool?? had nothing go their way. A total of 303 was established with three different half-centurions in the tally for Lost Legacy. This was followed by all their bowlers having a successful day with the only decent batter for ??Cool?? being their keeper who came in at 8, by when the game was all but finished. A 119-run loss is how it was recorded and that showcases the margin between the quality of cricket the two sides were able to present on field that day.

YOD I: Maiden Scotland CC (Maiden50) vs Silly Mid-Off CC (Maddog40 affiliate) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282652
Daren Charles had a fantastic day at the top of the order for Maiden Scotland CC with his half-century but the other batters did not have equivalent performances to brag about on their report cards with golden days for bowlers Arthur Alfred and Clement Asgarali. Silly Mid-Off CC started the chase with fifties for both their openers but that blistering start was blown away by them losing five wickets in little to no while. Rupert Moses impressed by running through the middle order but unfortunate for him that Arthur Alfred continued his impressive day with the ball earlier in the evening with the bat as well as the thirty he contributed took his side over the line with just seven balls to spare.

YOD II: crazy eleven (dpk195) vs SBClub (rkpny affiliate) http://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282392
An overrating by crazy eleven led to SBClub being awarded the win.

YOD III: Crazy Eleven 2 (dpk195 affiliate) vs Silly Mid-On CC (Maddog40) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282645
255 runs were scored by Crazy Eleven 2 on an uneven deck and in windy weather with keeper Tahir Mazin scoring an exemplary ton batting at five. 43 from 23 balls for Tatye Salpietro helping the total upwards. The Silly Mid-On CC innings wasn't one that was as ideal with most of the top order failing to contribute a big innings. Two fifties in the lower order were quality but were not enough as they went on to get to an eventual 29-run loss.

Gondrani Jackals(2) vs Peshawar Zalmi(0) [4.5-2.5]

Platinum: Ceylonian Blasters (KeepItCool) vs Mohito's Mohican XI (aarong affiliate) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282519
West Indian batter William Linton scored a fifty on a sticky deck whilst the rest of the order contributed with a few thirties in there but Gregory Dudgeon's four wicket haul saw Ceylonian Blasters be cleaned up for 224 in their innings. The chase did not start well for Mohito's Mohican XI with single-digit figures for the top three but Bermudan Henry Garraway came in at four and scored 110 runs as his unbeaten innings took the side over the line with 19 balls to spare.

Diamond: Jacksons Barbers (Cjackson94) vs Trevor Francis Tracksuit (aarong) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282423
Beginning with Lance Brasher's ninety up at the top of the order and a couple of fifties further down the order with Wade Inverarity striking a 54* at 16, Jacksons Barbers had 298 onboard. Their opponents did not have equal time during the chase. Rama Kumble picked a fifer as Saffer Variant was their only half-centurion. Another game of too big a score causing a bit too much pressure in the chase as we were just heading toward an inevitable loss for much of the last quarter of the game after the drinks break in the second innings, wondering if it would be another staple of a game or will we witness a miracle from a hero, Variant in this here case? It was the staple as Jacksons Barbers finished victorious by 48 runs.

Gold: Aggressive Vegetables CC(madcarrot) vs Pembina Norseman (JarlOlaf) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282302
Oh, the classic tale of a veteran on one of his final ventures and a young lad coming through the ranks combining and playing a marvel, a gem of a partnership. Aggressive Vegetables CC's Ofisa Crockett struck a massive ton whilst young lad Isaiah House showcased his skills with a fine 83 as well as the two had an unbeaten 173 run stand. 335 was onboard on the dry deck and Pembina Norseman top three departed for scores inside twenty. Too big a total, openers go cheaply looking to maximise the powerplay and the rest of the order seem to have a clueless day, trying to find the light of resurgence. It was an eventual 59-run loss but the game did seem as if it slip away the moment none of the top three could stick around and establish a dominating knock.

Silver: AdrenoX Bagadbillas (XUVwalagunda) vs Baffling Bulls (Nee2) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282594
Well, the staple continues. Reece McLoughlin scores a fine ton, Eamonn Clarke hits 76, Franklyn Pollard scores a blistering finish of 27 runs at a strike rate of 245 and AdrenoX Bagadbillas had 344 onboard after 50 overs on the hard deck. Mike McCoy scored a fifty but that was all notable from the Baffling Bulls innings in another win of the staple style for Gondrani Jackals.

YOD I: Cool Blasters (KeepItCool affiliate) vs Al Khobar Falcons (MOD-wmchamps) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282388
Haji Sheikh started the day off with an away swinger to right-handed batter Evan Rooney. A ball left and collected by the keeper. A peaceful start to what was about to be up next as the day went ahead. Ball two, a little fuller but pretty much the same stuff, Rooney goes for the drive and gets an edge straight to slip. The first innings was an Andrew Moriarty fifty and a some smaller contributions from a few other lads as they had a 179 onboard in the first innings. The chase had a poor start as the top order's highest contributor was a mere 39 with tens and twenties for the rest. Anil Rauf came in at seven at 115/5 with 65 runs needed from the next 14 overs. Rauf combined well with the tailenders but the wickets kept falling. Al Khobar Falcons were 134/7 after 31 overs, needing 46 in 54 balls. Rauf kept the scores ticking as a 21 run stand brewed but the eighth wicket fell as 25 were still needed from 24 balls. 1 and 3 came off the next two as 21 were still requisite from 12 balls. Rauf ran two of the first ball, and then stole a three from the next. 16 were needed from ten further deliveries and it was the tailender on strike. Sheikh had a two from the next ball and exchanged strikes off the next. Rauf tried to go for the boundary the next ball but missed and kept his strike off the last ball, leaving 12 more needed in six balls. Gavin Hogan's medium pace was the difference between the two sides. A full length ball outside the off stump was swiped for a couple to deep cover by Rauf. A slower yorker next ball, was swept to fine leg for a couple more. 8 needed of 4 now and Hogan changes his strategy and goes for a quicker bouncer but Rauf advanced down the ground and pulled one straight to cow's corner to a couple. The next was another yorker that Rauf barely got under as mid-wicket fielded the ball inside the thirty yard circle. 5 needed from 2 balls and Sheikh had another yorker to get under but he eeked it out to cover and gave strike back to Rauf. 4 to win off the next ball. Hogan changed fields, the leg-side fielders were brought inside the circle as the 5 lads outside the 30 yard circle were placed at a pretty square fine leg, a very fine third man, a fielder at square, a deep cover and a long off. He was going to bowl a ball wide of the off stump. Rauf stood on the off stump and walked down and off as Hogan came into his run-up. A wide yorker that Rauf turned into a low-fulltoss that he tried his hardest to slog toward midwicket on the leg side, but a masterful dive by Emmet Duddy deflected the ball square. Fine Leg got to the ball and so did the player at what was a squarer mid-wicket but inside the circle, but not exactly a square leg. The batters had been able to exchange two by then and stole a three as the two fielders were puzzled about who was going for the ball. They were grateful it still wasn't a four but a runout chance gone begging for a memorable tied fixture.

YOD II: Ball Busters (Gratus) vs Wolfberries Too (wolfberries) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282409
A top order implosion for Ball Busters with 25 coming in total of the top five batters started the debacle. But Peter Sekonyela at six and Gihahn Bayly at nine saved the innings with a couple thirties. Julien Callaway hit a fifty in the chase to start the innings off. The middle order had a rather poor day but Alex Iceton in the lower middle order added 21 runs. Iceton did not have a consistent partners as the wickets kept falling. The required rate was lower than the scoring rate but the tailenders could not stay put. 7 were needed in 2 overs with a wicket in hand when Iceton took a three and gave strike to the number 11. There was a dot that was followed by a two off the next couple balls. 1 run needed, 1 wicket in hand, skipper Benjamin Whitfield playing to a field closed in on him with just one lad outside the 30-yard circle. He flicks the ball to mid-wicket and sets out for a single. Iceton responded to the call and ran as well. Whitfield dove but fell short to a direct hit and Ball Busters took the win by a singular run!

YOD III: Mumbai Monkey (Dietrich) vs Aqrabiyah Antlers (MOD-wmchamps affiliate) https://www.fromthepavilion.org/game.htm?gameId=6282313
236 runs were scored in the first innings on a flat deck with Deron Collymore leading the effort for Mumbai Monkey. Sahir Riaz and Muhajid Jan contributed fifties in the chase. Nazmi Rashid contributed toward the end of the innings with a 42 in 39 balls as he took Aqrabiyah Antlers home in the very final over.

Another interesting set of 21 fixtures with far less overratings as Round 2 finishes with the points table in the following shape:

As always a delightful summary. Great skills!

Drama in the Peshawar vs Quetta fixture as both winning teams overrated, but good news for Quetta as they manage to win 4-3 and secure the valuable 2 points.
