Minor League Cricket Week 7: Foo Keeps Philadelphians In Playoff HuntJonathan Foo scored 86 against DC Hawks

Atlantic Conference- Eastern Division

An ice cool Jonathan Foo kept the Philadelphians in the playoff hunt as the tournament heads into its final weekend of the league stage. Foo plundered 16 runs of Dane Piedt's final over to hand The Philadelphians a nervy win off the penultimate ball. The New England Eagles who are out of contention for the playoffs spoiled the Yorkers' party by pulling off an unlikely heist off the final over. Rizwan Mazhar slapped Poojan Mody for 3 consecutive sixes to take the Eagles home off the final ball of the game.

Atlantic Conference- Southern Division

Morrisville Cardinals shot themselves in the foot by losing both their games during the weekend. Cardinals, who appeared a certainty to advance to the playoffs, have now lost 4 games on the trot. Cardinals' loss is Atlanta Param Veers gain as the latter are now set to qualify for the playoffs if they beat Atlanta Fire in both their scheduled games the coming weekend. If Param Veers pull off that unlikely result of toppling the Fire twice in two games, they will edge out the Cardinals and go to the playoffs with an already qualified Atlanta Fire.

Pacific Conference- Western Division

Hammad Azam produced a masterful 69 off 46 balls against the Seattle Thunderbolts to have the Golden State Grizzlies book their play off berth. Azam was a cut above the rest with the bat as the next highest score ended up being 16 with the Thunderbolts only managing to crawl their way to 68 for 6 in 20 overs. Going into the final weekend of the league stage East Bay Blazers and Silicon Valley Strikers start at 38 points each with 2 games each to play vying for the final playoff spot from Western Division after the Grizzlies.

Pacific Conference- Central Division

The weekend produced agony and ecstasy in equal measure for the Houston Hurricanes, sliding to defeat in the final ball of the game against Austin Athletics while pulling off a dramatic win against the Irving Mustangs with 16 needed of the final over. The fluctuating fortunes of the Hurricanes now give a sniff to the Michigan Cricket Stars to book a playoff spot in place of the Hurricanes. The Stars would hope they win both their remaining encounters against a weak Chicago Blasters side while the Hurricanes lose their final league game against the Irving Mustangs. Hurricanes go through if they win their final game and edge out the Stars with Austin Athletics already qualifying from the Central Division.
