A good start last week to the T20 season with some expected and some upset results. All in all a wonderful week of cricket and congratulations on some special performances in Week 1 to the below mentioned players.

 

Kiran Kumar Suresh – Hunters Div II- 141*

Hazarath- Warriors DIV II- 4wkts (including a Hattrick)

Rasan Amintha- Srilankan DIV I – 5 for 7

Rasan Amintha- Srilankan DIV I -72

Gaurav- Zolon- PD- 4wkts(vs Kensington), 42 & 3 wkts(vs Vikings).

 

Premier Division:

Team 1

Team 2

Ground

Pick

Kensington

Dulles

Hyattsville

Dulles- Dulles is currently the team on a high after their impressive performances in the night tournament and their season opener. Will be a contest to watch between the Kensington batting in their yard against a spirited Dulles bowling.

Tigers

UMBC

Woodmor

Tigers- UMBC is one team which has a fight hard attitude which showed in their tight win against AFCA and it will be good game against Tigers. Tigers are on a prowl and if Imran comes back (as being said) their bowling strength will increase. Kamran, Anirudh, Charan are all good additions to the Tigers batting. It depends on how UMBC bowling controls the flow of runs.

Zolon

Cosmos

Fairfax

Zolon- After doing well in their first week back to back games, Zolon should go into this game as strong favorites. But Cosmos will be a dangerous customer at home. They pulled back last weekend and won from a no win situation against Nitro, but lost the next day at home to the mighty Tigers. Will be interesting to see how Zolon bowling handles some of the known batsmen from Cosmos.

Virginia

Vikings

Hyattsville

Vikings- Two losses last week must have given Vikings the much needed push to get back on track. They will be looking to come back strong and get on the points table against Virginia who seem not to take T20 seriously. If they turn up with a determined set of players, they can be really hard to beat on a slow Hyattsville track.

Nitro

Titans

Veterans

Titans- Nitro had a strong start last week and was on track to a comfortable win, when they just lost the plot against Cosmos. When teams make a win to a loss, it’s tough when they are up against better bowling line ups. Titans will be on a high with a good win against Tigers last week in the night game and then another against AFCA. With the lighting fast outfield at Veterans, it should be down to who keep their nerves.

Kensington

AFCA

Veterans

Kensington- With back to back games, it’s always tough on a team get players on both days. At Veterans with the fast outfield it should be good for the Kensington batters to score big and quick. If AFCA cannot restrict Kensington to below 150, it could become a tough ask for them.

Tigers

Boyds

Soccerplex

Boyds- Boyds will be looking to get a big win in their yard against the big Tigers. Last week a big win against Vikings has showed that Adil and his boys are all prepped up for the T20 season. Tigers at Soccerplex have not been so successful in the previous seasons but with players like Charan it should sure be a good contest.

DIV I:

Team 1

Team 2

Ground

Pick

Baltimore

Fairfax

Woodmor

Fairfax- Baltimore will be a tough customer at home, but with the all rounded Fairfax team, it could prove a tough ask.

CCC

Srilankan

Hyattsville

Srilankan- Battle of the lankans on a slow track. From the results of last week, Srilankan will be a tough team to beat and CCC bowling and batting were under par against Star, but made up against Taurids. Close game on cards tilting towards the home team.

Jamaica

Urbana

Soccerplex

Urbana- Urbana had a good start last week, while Jamaica had a rough one. At Soccerplex teams visiting have a tough time adjusting and could be the case here too.

Pakistan

Elite

Soccerplex

Pakistan- With a loss on run-rate to Potomac, Pakistan will be looking to erase it quickly and get back on track against Elite at home. Elite will need to quickly gather up their resources and come up with a big win to boost their sagging confidence.

ICC

Metro

Metro

ICC- Tough loss last week against Baltimore, ICC will be looking to come back strong and have a field day at Metro.

Urbana

Star

Soccerplex

Star- Teams face each other in their own yard. Both teams have good records on this ground and it comes down to which team can keep the runs flowing. Star looks favorites to start it.

Toucans

Taurids

Fairfax

Taurids- Could be a close game, but Taurids I feel will have the advantage on the Fairfax strip.

Potomac

Fairfax

Fairfax

Fairfax- Potomac will be tough to brush off, but Fairfax should be a strong contender in Lake Fairfax.
