    Hampshire 2nd XI manager Eyes_Only has made minimal changes to the team that crushed Northens in the last round. Shelley is out with a damaged rotator cuff while Aldridge and Bond strengthen the bowling attack.

    Eyes_Only spoke to reporters after leaving training and was reported as saying "Here's hoping we can continue our winning ways this week. It will be a tough match as always but I know the boys will be giving 100%."

    When asked why the changes to the bowling attack, she replied: "We were one bowler short last week and even though we won by such a huge margin, I felt that by bringing Shane and Graham into the team, it would bolster the bowling and would add two experenced players to the mix."

    Hampshire 2nd XI: S Highsmith, G Rahman, I Ul Haq (Capt), E Drake, S Qambrani, P Thompson, L Bassue, Z Exley, T Naidu (W/K), S Bond, G Aldridge

    Comets Win Again to Stay Top

    ACT Comets won their fifth first class match of the season to maintain top position in the division one competition. The Comets went into the clash with Hampshire as warm favourites and the new look team were very confident of a win.

    After winning the toss and batting first Trescothick and De Villiers made a decent start before both fell with the score on 46. Star middle order batters Yashpal Singh and Ricky Ponting put on 143 for the 3rd wicket, Ponting was the first to go for an impressive 76 while Yashpal later went for a patient 65. Captain Owen Cardew returned to form with a swashbuckling 97 and was very unlucky not to score a century, all rounder Ismail Tamhane made 43 and helped the Comets post a competitive 394.

    Ponting's 76 was a highlight of day One

    Hampshire never got going in their reply as the Comets star quick men Paul Marlowe and Ben Marshall took two wickets each in their opening spell. In form S Graham lead a mini revival with Pollard, but a few quick wickets to spinners Tamhane and Hasan ruined any chance Hamps had of avoiding the follow on. Graham (84) was the only batsman to make any impact while the best of the bowlers for the Comets were Marlowe 4/28, I Tamhane 3/38 and Marshall 2/25. Hamps all out for 160.

    Tamhane enjoyed his return to the first class game

    Hampshire were asked to bat again and this time they improved their performance. Graham (77) and Chopra (40) gave the Comets bowlers some problems early but the star quick bowlers again got on top and contributed in giving the Comets a very easy chase. Marshall with 4/77 took his season tally to 31 wickets, one in front of Marlowe who took 3/63. Hasan and Tamhane also took a wicket as Hamps were all out for 298.

    Trescothick and Ponting knocked off the 65 runs required for the win after De Villiers fell to a good one from Gamage.

    ACT Name One Day Team

    ACT Comets manager Simon Fitzsimmons today named his side to take on Leicestershire in England this weekend. The Foxes are highly fancied and Fitzsimmons has decided to make a few changes on the side that won last week.

    Despite sitting second in the one day competition Fitzsimmons has been disappointed with several parts of the teams game, the bowling in particular has been poor with only young Ben Marshall having a reasonable season. For this reason Moeez Butt has been called into the first team for this debut WCC game, Butt has taken 8 wickets @ 23 in the 2nd XI this season and held off a strong challenge from fellow youngster Duncan Withe for his spot.

    Moeez Butt will make his WCC debut

    Quin Riley has also copped the axe this week, after a strong start to the season several below par performaces of late have cost him his spot. A slightly re-schuffled batting order will line up this week as a result, Alex Louden will move from four to the opening position while another youngster from the seconds Geoff Eaves will bat at number three. Star batsman Yashpal Singh will drop one spot down the order to his prefered number four position. Captain Owen Cardew who has been in great form in One Day cricket will again be expected to play a closing role at number six.

    The full ACT line up is:
    Alex Louden, AB De Villiers+, Geoff Eaves, Yashpal Singh, Misbah Ul Haq, Owen Cardew*, Ismail Tamhane, Ben Marshall, Matt Ramage, Moeez Butt and Paul Marlowe.

    Yorkshire demolish Guyana
    A hundred by wicket-keeper batsman Lou Vincent and a stunning bowling performance by F Evans saw Yorkshire record their first win over Guyana.
    Batting first at home, Lou Vincent (106) and Martin Love (53) built a strong partnership after the wicket of K Agnew. Solid contributions up and down the batting order ensured Yorkshire made 300 plus.
    Lou Vincent, in his first innings as an opener, was brilliant as he hit 106 off 162 with 16 fours. Martin Love hit another fifty to give the home side a distinct advantage.

    Lou Vincent hit his maiden 100 for the club.

    In Guyana's first innings, K Powar grinded out 65 runs from 153 deliveries which was the highlight of their innings. F Evans was well supported by the rest of the bowlers as he grabbed 6 wickets completing a dismantling of the Guyana batting line up, who were all out for 186.

    They were forced to follow on, and Evans improved on his first innings tally. He bowled 36 overs to claim a further 8 wickets for just 52 runs in a tight effort of bowling. Debutant Zahid Saeed finished with 2 wickets for the match, while J Wilkes and J Rudolph both passed 50 for Guyana.

    Yorkshire lost two wickets in chasing the small total for victory, which will no doubt give the entire team a boost in confidence ahead of the one day encounter with New South Wales.

    Anup Dave has been dropped from the First XI in favour of batsman P Marsden who will bolster the line up. W Beasley is expected to play in the 5th bowlers role.
    NSW beat Yorks in the second round of the one day comp and no doubt the Yorks players will be wanting revenge.

    Yorkshire all out 338
    L Vincent 106, M Love 53
    F e-Akbar 5-69, I Nelson 3-70

    Guyana all out 186
    K Powar 65, M Clarke 30
    F Evans 6-45, R Silva 2-40

    Guyana (following on) all out 238
    J Wilkes 57, J Rudolph 55
    F Evans 8-52, R Silva 1-54

    Yorkshire 2-87
    W Tendulkar 40*, M Love 22*
    I Nelson 1-17, F e-Akbar 1-32

    Yorkshire won by 8 wkts.

    MOTM: F Evans

    Yorkshire MVP points
    3. F Evans
    2. L Vincent
    1. M Love

    Jones get the chop

    After a disappointing start to the season by the Colts seam bowlers Phillip Jones is the first to face the chop. With all three Colts seam bowler averaging over 50 it was only about time before one of them got dropped. With both Tweedie and Hitchcock playing a major role with the bat this season, averaging over 40. Jones was the unlucky one to get dropped. Comming into the side for the vetern Welsh seamer is Colts junior Murali Mudugalle, who has been in amazing form in both FC cricket and in the cup competition. Mudugalle will join Trougton and capatin Lennox Cush in a three man spin attack, on the spin friendly Helvelock pitch.

    Jones taking one of his seven wickets this season

    The Western Australian second eleven have finally won their first four-day match of the season, with a comprehensive 8-wicket win over Warwickshire.
    Things went right from the beginning, with stand-in captain M Vandort winning the toss and having no hesitation in sending the opposition in on a typically bowler-friendly WACA wicket. The bowlers backed up well, taking wickets regularly to dismiss Warwickshire for 210, with Milligan finishing with 7/55. Khoda was the only one to offer any resistance, with an unbeaten 167-ball 76.
    After a shaky start to their innings, rookie K Raymer (58) and I Ghulam Ahmed (139*) added 69 for the fourth wicket, before the innings threatened to fall away again. However, M Hossain Jr contributed a 48-ball 46 to an eighth-wicket stand worth 83 with Ghulam Ahmed to ensure the total reached 342.
    Warwickshire's second innings was even more disappointing than the first, being dismissed for 160 in just 60.3 overs. The wickets were shared amongst the bowlers, with Milligan claiming another 4 to finish with match figures of 11/78 off 32 overs.
    Needing just 28 to win, WA had a slight stutter, with Akthar claiming Hoare and Rayadu in successive balls, but the result was never going to be in doubt.
    What, me worry?

    There have been a couple of changes to the 1st XI line-up. A reshuffle of the batting order has seen the in-form Ardley moved up to number 4 while David Evans slides down to 5 to try and regain some form. Morley regains his spot in the side for Jaques, mostly due to Jaques' inability to grasp his chances in the top side, rather than Morley being overly impressive in the 2nd XI.

    In the 2nd XI side, Watson will get a chance up the order, and manager Jack McNamara is still waiting for Iqbal Tahir to regain some form with his swing bowling to get back into the 1st XI.

    Having stepped into the first XI manager's position for a week, tadeusz has made some big changes to both WA's first and second teams.
    As the first team is currently sitting on the bottom of the division 2 table, tadeusz decided to promote some of his better second XI players, to give them experience if nothing else. I Ghulam Ahmed, M Vandort and F Milligan have all been promoted from last round's second XI side, while N Ojha has been given another chance. H Kanitkar, W Hopcutt and A Adams have been demoted to 2nd XI, while H Jenkins has been given a rest.
    As well as the three first XI players, J Ryder comes into the second XI at the expense of rookie V Fernando.

    Duminy Stars As Karachi Choke

    Karachi were slaughtered by JP Duminy, who finished on 302*, as New South Wales turned a 271 second innings defecit into a 340 run lead, Before finishing only 2 wickets short of victory.

    Youhana won the toss for Karachi on a bright morning, and elected to bat, hoping to recapture the batting form shown from the last 4-day game. W.Jaffer fell first for 37, prodding at a ball from Pierre, But 125 had been put on, and a large total looked in order. With the score at 2/324, things were looking ominous for NSW. A sharp catch was needed from Geriant Jones to dislodge M.Jenkins, who had been completely dominant during his innings, for 189 (258-22x4-0x6). His dismissal sparked a collapse from Karachi, who tumbled from 2/324, to being all out for 414. Speaking to commentators during the innings break, Youhana was obviously dissapointed that a chance to post a mammoth total had been let go.

    It was soon smiles all around for Karachi, as P Norman ripped through the NSW top order. Finishing with 5/43, he took 4 wickets as NSW found themselves at 8/87, before a small cameo innings from Rookie S.Crowhurst managed to life their total to 143.Youhana had no hesitation in enforcing the follow on. It was here that the game turned. 140 overs later, NSW had amassed 611 runs, for the loss of only 6 wickets. Jean Paul Duminy finishing on 302* (277-39x4-5x6), with Sehwag also hitting 110 (132-15x4-0x6).

    At one stage looking set for a big victory, Karachi now faced a tough period, having to face out 51 overs to force a draw. Once again Jenkins was the star, his 90* (135-12x4-0x6) providing the backbone to the innings as wickets tumbled around him. The Karachi middle order was once again found wanting, and were it not for Jenkin's innings, One of crickets greatest turn-arounds would have been witnessed.

    The Queensland board were notably excited over at the Gabba with the big tie against Tamil Nadu coming up. Having only lost to Karachi, in their first game, and now sitting on the top of the table. The Bulls have made their mark as a premier contender for the competition.

    Manager Nayak was hoping for a win, and relying on his redoubtable bowling attack, of Kadir Ali, Wayne Tully, Percival Mooney, James Hopes and Arjuna Wascoroni. Especially Ali who had been on fire recently with 18 wickets @ 13.33.

    WA has convincingly beaten Free State by eight wickets in their round 7 one-day match last night. After winning the toss and fielding first, WA's bowlers reduced Free State to 3/50, before a brilliant 114-ball 111 by I Bowes and solid supporting knocks by S Maxwell (51 off 56) and Y Snow (32 off 43) saw the total reach 6/262. The pick of the bowlers was clearly W Quinn, who finished with 4/46 off his 10.
    WA's innings got off to a solid start, with Uthappa and Tewntyman adding 45 for the first wicket before Uthappa fell for 15. Coming in at number three after a stint in the seconds, I Ghulam Ahmed didn't need any time to readjust as he and Tewntyman proceeded to smash 139 runs for the second wicket at nearly a run a ball. Ghulam Ahmed finally fell for 77 off 73 deliveries with the score at 184. Tewntyman was then joined by another inclusion for this week's match, N Ojha, who again didn't take any time at all to get into the swing of things. The 79 runs needed to win came with 5 overs to spare, with Tewntyman finishing unbeaten on 121 off 138 deliveries and Ojha with 45 off only 34.

    Leicestershire have lost yet again in the one day competition against ACT. It seems cricket is a strange game at times, as ACT managed to chase down 270 odd to win with the loss of only 4 wickets. The Leicestershire manager wasn't overly impressed by the effort in the field and will be speaking to the players at a later date, but the bowling performances really need to pick up if we wish to survive the division. What is most bizarre is how our strongest form we find ourselves in a bottom 3 position whilst the weaker form we seem to be hanging on. Effort will need to be made in order to avoid the drop. On the positive side Piggott making 74 and Underwood and Manzoor making 50's is pleasing as those 3 in particular haven't been scoring for quite some time.

    Straw returns in style

    Ben Straw returned from a long injury to the Mashonaland side in emphatic style today as the Mashonaland total proved too much for the Northerns' batsmen.

    Mashonaland won the toss and batted first on their home pitch, which was expected to take some turn as the match went on. The home team were off to a shaky start, however, with the top three of Harvey, Roll and Oulton all dismissed for under 20 with the score on only 82. James Beasley and Ben Straw were then united at the crease, and didn't leave until over 170 runs were added. Beasley (85 off 101) was willing to play second fiddle to Straw, who launched into the Northerns bowling from the beginning. Afridi (1/81) and Cassel (0/79) copped the most stick, but Straw managed to score off everyone, launching boundaries all around the ground. It was Beasley who went first though, lbw to a much relieved Afridi, leaving Mash on 4/253 and the very real possibility of making 300. The new man in, Michael Travis, looked for the singles to keep Straw on strike, but his blistering innings eventually came to an end. Eyeing an ambitious six to bring up his 150, he succeeded only in edging to the keeper for a match-winning knock of 148 off only 106 balls. From 5/287, a score over 300 was practically guaranteed, and the Zimbabs eventually ended with 6/306 off their fifty overs.

    Ben Straw hit an astonishing innings in his return from injury

    The Northerns openers started the chase confidently, with neither Tudor or Bradshaw able to take an early wicket. Holland and Smith put on over 50 runs together before the Mashonaland captain, Saqlain Mushtaq, managed to extract something from the pitch, causing a leading edge from Holland straight back into his hands. Mushtaq got the second wicket as well, with Smith edging behind for 46. Northerns were 2/100, with the required run-rate climbing fast. Orton tried to speed things up, but he eventually tried too much and was bowled by Joshi for 37. Tudor then removed Vardhan and Dawson, leaving Northerns struggling at 5/157. Darden and Afridi came in next, and were benefited by Mushtaq's strange decision to bowl his part timers rather than going for the kill. The two batsmen pillaged the bowling of Oulton, Straw and Harvey, but even their strike rates of more than a run a ball couldn't see Northerns home in the end. The two ended with unbeaten half centuries, but Northerns were 35 runs short in the end at 5/271.

    Mashonaland 6/306
    Straw 148 (106), Beasley 85 (101), Roll 19 (21)
    Shah 1/37 (10), Khan 1/47 (10)

    Northerns 5/275
    Darden 83* (81), Afridi 53* (44), Smith 46 (50)
    Mushtaq 2/36 (10), Tudor 2/44 (9)
