Corporate League resumes today
11/9/2005
 

          After almost three weeks break, the GrameenPhone 3rd Corporate Cricket League resumes today (Wednesday) with three matches of the fourth round at three different venues in Dhaka, reports BDNEWS.
Group A leaders Biman Bangladesh Airlines with five points take on the lowly Orion Group at Jagannath Hall ground of Dhaka University while Group-B title contenders MM Ispahani Ltd with three points play against newcomers Bangla Cat at Fatullah Cricket Stadium.
In the Group B, title aspirants the ACME Laboratories will play against Jamuna Bank at the Dhanmondi Cricket Stadium. Both the teams earned three points each at the end of third round.
Though the season's curtain-raiser corporate league was scheduled to complete in October, the inclement weather forced to defer the league for three times. And Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) also forced to revise the fixtures of the domestic competition including country's lone first class national cricket league and prestigious premier cricket league.
Besides, the corporate cricket league committee took the initiative to resume the league before Eid-Ul-Fitre but the participating teams requested them to shift the league after the Eid.
Besides, the league committee decided to hold all remaining matches at four venues in Dhaka to complete the league immediately, axing three venues of Bogra, Chittagong and Khulna from the revised fixture.
Title contenders -- MM Ispahani Ltd, Araf Apparels, The ACME Laboratories who remained with three points each from three matches -- shared points with the minnows as the inclement weather forced to declare the match abandoned. And, they were forced to share point as per by-law, where there was no reserved day for abandoned match, if any.
After the third round, Gazi Tank Cricketers and Epyllion Group shared the Group-A top-position with five points each, followed by Araf Apparels and MM Ispahani with three points. Newcomers Security Express earned two points while Bangla Cat are yet to open their account.
Biman Bangla Airlines and Beximco Group also topped the group with five points each from three matches. The ACME Laboratories and Jamuna Bank are in the second-position with three points and Metro Real Estate and Orion Group collected one point each from an equal number of outings.
