AFTER last week’s T20 & T10 Cup competitions, the Quaid-e-Azam Sunday League resumed this past week with a bang.

In the Premier Section, over 450 runs were scored at Bankfoot. Saqib Mir’s valuable 47 helped his Azad side chase down Eldwick Law’s challenging total of 232-8, after Bilal Butt scored a maiden half century (55) for the home side.

Despite a good effort by left arm off spinner Zainul Abideen, who picked up 3-23, joint leaders Azad managed to secure a narrow two-wicket victory.

My Lahore’s Ali Hussain took 4-22 to provide his table topping team with a win over Adam CC by three wickets. Husnat Bukhari scoring 43 in Adam's 103.

Mehrban Ahmed’s fine form of batting continued for Keighley RZM, who are the third team tied for first place. He scored 88 to go along with Danish Hussain's 59 as their side set 239-6 against Attock Tigers. Tigers struggled in reply and were all out for 103, Mushy Shah taking 3-16.

Suleman Khan’s 46 helped Earl Marshall beat Kashmir (Bradford) by four wickets. Kashmir were all out for 175, Bilal Hameed hitting 72 and Hamzah Iqbal scoring 41.

There was another run feast in Section A between Amaan and Birkby Rose Hill. Mehmood Arif’s unbeaten 50 was part of his team's 214. Abshar Hussain got 3-9 in that innings and Birkby backed him up in the batting department by reaching the target for the loss of seven wickets.

Naveed Hafeez's (51) and Mohsin Hamdani's (53) half centuries saw Shaheen score 197-7 against Cambridge Methodists. Despite Tahir Majeed taking 4-39, Cambridge had Hameed Bashir (64) to thank, as they won by one wicket.

Imran Khan's 4-32 and Suhail Qayyum's 3-16 saw their side bowl out Salem Athletic for 157, Waqas Ahmed scoring 52.

Fine bowling by Majid Khan (3-15) had Attock in a very difficult situation. However, with seven runs required from the last over, they managed to get themselves over the line with a wicket to spare.

At Scotchman Road, Muhammad Fakhar's 5-16 saw Bowling Baptist all out for 86 against Choudhrys.

A courageous effort by Nadeem Ahmed, who picked up 4-25, had Choudhrys six wickets down. An unbeaten half century by Shamas Aziz (53*) revived things though and handed his side a four-wicket victory.
