Teams Line-up for Title Clash...
The weatherman (to be politically correct weatherperson) for once was nearly on the dot. There were no matches of Friday and true to expectations came the light drizzle which lasted through the day, rather intermittently. The excellent draining mechanism on the Dukhan grounds ensured there was no water logging. Thus the Saturday dawned with a slightly moist outfield, mainly due to the overnight dew, but the sun beating down, which would help the ground to dry quickly.

Since there was none, the matches had to be played “as is”...more
Teams Continue to Battle for Top Spots in League Stage...
The clouded state of the league stage group standings to move into the quarter-finals disappeared, but not the clouds over the Dukhan Cricket Field. As a finale to the league stage, came the rains, resulting in some firsts. For the first time in the annals of the Chairman’s cup, a match had to be called off. The no-result affair between the Dukhan teams (Operations & Community) though a non-event for the standings, was another first event. The Community team for the first time scored one point, courtesy of nature. Another first, which happened in the morning was the Corporate Training team won their first match and consequently their first points. And to commemorate these first, a colourful rainbow spanned the sky in the ev...more

The newly re-laid concrete pitch and green ground provided an inviting arena for the playing teams. The first day’s matches took place in ideal climatic conditions with the starting contest overshadowed by the overnight dew. The second days play however was engulfed by dusty and windy conditions. The enthusiasm for the game prevailed over the climate and all matches took place in the best spirit of the game. - S.S.Narayanan.
