WITH no clubs resigning from the Quaid-e-Azam League, which remains at three divisions of ten teams, four clubs are still on a waiting list.

They are Attock Tigers and Manningham, both from the West Riding Sunday Council League, a Dewsbury & District Sunday League club and a newly-formed fourth team from a club in Leeds.

Meanwhile, the August Bank Holiday eight-a-side competition has been scrapped, with the Chefgenie Shield final taking its place.

Previously the Shield final clashed with the Yasmin & Shaid Solicitors Cup semi-finals.

Yet intriguingly, the league's executive committee are looking at the feasibility of holding a day-night tape-ball event.

Tape-ball cricket is considered an integral part of Pakistani cricket and sports culture. It is a street version of the game, using a tennis ball wrapped in electrical tape to give it weight and improve the flight.

In other matters, the league's points system has been amended, with chasing teams needing to score 75 per cent of the target to gain a point.

Easier Management Claims are sponsoring the upgrade of the league's website, which will include live scoring and instant player statistics, plus other exciting features.

Travelling costs for umpires have also been increased.
