Postponements, Fixtures & the new Development League

26th April 2012

The BCEW Northern Development League started at Old Sharlston CC near Wakefield on Sunday 22nd April.

The game was played between Yorkshire Ridings and Durham VICC with the home side winning by 7 wickets.

The weather forecast wasn’t good but the rain stopped in the early afternoon and after some sterling work by the groundstaff, we got going at around 2pm.

Durham were put into bat and made 99 for 5 wickets in their 20 overs. Yorkshires young development players batted steadily and reached 101 for 3 in around 14 overs. Both teams agreed that they would carry on and use all 20 overs in order to give everyone a chance.

Yorkshire took 18 points from the match with Durham gaining 4 points.

Special mention goes to Peter Stanley who was umpiring his first ever game of VI cricket and equipped himself well.

Altogether a good start to the first development league season and this bodes well for the rest of the year.
