All to play for after Week 3 of the LPL Hundred

The LPL Hundred had its third round of fixtures this weekend and spectators weren’t left disappointed as some excellent cricket was on show.

Fixture clashes meant that Scarcroft CC could not fulfil their fixtures against Men in Blue and Yorkshire Strikers meaning that they had to concede both fixtures.

Hyde Park Eagles suffered their first defeat of the season against the Harrogate Warriors meaning that as of now, the only team still unbeaten are last season’s champions – the Leeds Gladiators.

The champions dealt with Harrogate Warriors a lot better than their nearest contenders did, chasing 103 in 54 balls. They also eased past the Leeds Lions – MOTM Sultan scored an impressive 49 not out, meaning that the Gladiators have won 6 out of 6 games so far and sit top of the table by 4 points.

The Wakefield Royal Indians were unable to capitalise on Hyde Park Eagle’s defeat to Harrogate Warriors after they also dropped points against the Leeds Titans. Despite setting a solid total of 142, poor fielding allowed the Titans to claw their way back into the game. Javid scored 71 to make sure the Titans won with a flourish, hitting the final ball of the match for 4, winning the game.

As we pass the halfway stage of the tournament the table is starting to split between four teams competing for the championship, and a number of other teams attempting to hang onto their coattails. Leeds Gladiators lead the way followed by Hyde Park Eagles, Wakefield Royal Indians and Men in Blue.

The results from the 15th August were as follows:

Leeds Gladiators WON vs Leeds Lions
Leeds Gladiators WON vs Harrogate Warriors
Harrogate Warriors WON vs Leeds Tuskers
Harrogate Warriors WON vs Hyde Park Eagles
Hyde Park Eagles WON vs Leeds Tuskers
