THE story of the weekend's Dales Council Cricket League came from the basement division where a set of newcomers set the tournament alight.

Debutants Interlink travelled to play Cookridge CC Thirds in Division C and notched a mammoth 433 runs, with three outs over 42 overs.

Mohammed Memi was the star of the show scoring 203 runs, with his partner Irfan Jamadar grabbing 51.

There was another century among the ranks when Ebrahim Bismillah got 108 runs not out.

Mohmed Faisal Amejee got 50 before he was caught, with his replacement Yunus Bismillah finishing their innings off with 14 runs.

Interlink then dismissed Cookridge for 65, securing the visitors their first win.

Elsewhere in the division, Mayfield Seconds travel to Station Road where they made 175-7 batting first.

But, they found hosts Drighlington Seconds too strong when they replied with 176-7 to take victory.

Both Aidan Dunne and James Inglis were on song for them, notching 53 and 50 respectively.

Shipley Providence were also in good form when, after scoring 167-9, they bowled out hosts St. Chads for 101.

Meanwhile, nine-man Muff Field Seconds were bowled out for 86 by Rodley who replied with 87-2 as Julian Horsley scored an unbeaten century.

In Division A, last year's champions Leeds Sikh made it two from two.

They scored 249-9 before bowling out hosts Crompark for only 78, with Gobind Suryavansi taking eight wickets.

Leeds captain and opener Manish Parimoo will perhaps feel slightly aggrieved as he was bowled out one short of a century.

Woodhouse followed Leeds Sikh's lead to make it two wins as well, bowling Cookridge out for 58, then replying with 59-3.

Thornbury though are struggling to repeat their form of 2018 which saw them finish as runners-up, as they remain winless so far this season.

They were bowled out for 121 after Halifax Direct made 207 runs when batting first.

Mayfield ended a bad day all round for the club with a loss at home to Drighlington.

The hosts hit 143-8, but Drigh smashed 145-4 in only 30 overs to secure victory.

At Scott Hall Oval Savile Stars found batting difficult and could only make 120 in their loss to Leeds Caribbean.

In Division B, Kanhu Charan Pattnayak helped fire Adel to 197 runs with his total of 70 before being caught.

But it wasn't enough, as One Stop replied with 199-8, which leaves them unbeaten.

Muff Field are also unbeaten, as they bowled out Cookridge Seconds for 145, after making 218 runs themselves.

At Daleside Road, Thornbury Seconds - who won the division last year - collapsed from 140-4 to 150 all-out.

But, they were able to castle opponents Halifax Direct Seconds for only 55, with Bilal Hussain picking up six wickets.

Leeds Sikh Seconds scored 196-9 at home to Pudsey Congs and then bowled them out for 153.

This despite Richard Edwards scoring 69 not out for the visitors.

Baildon made 170 away at Tong Park Esholt, with James Butterfield getting the lion's share of that tally with 70 runs.

It wasn't enough though as the hosts replied with 174-5.
