It’s time for ACA Annual Cup (Tape ball)!
Afghan Cricket Association UK is organising it’s first ever tournament “ACA Annual Cup”. A total of 6 teams can take part in this tournament which will take place on Sunday the 23rd of July between 9am — 8pm at Regents Park in what promises to be an explosive day.
It will be a 3 rounds competition between 8 teams, each team will consist of 9 players. In round one (qualifying round), the teams have been divided into two groups (Group A and Group each group will have 3 teams and each team will play two games lasting 12 overs per innings (in their group stage). Two teams with most number of wins/points will qualify from each group to the semifinals.
The winners from semifinals will go through to the final and battle for the trophy. There will be awards for the batsman with most runs, for the bowler with most wickets, for most number of sixes and best performance. We are planning to finish the entire tournament in one day so the number of overs in each round will differ. Due to the limited period of time, in group stage it will be 12 overs match (12 overs each innings). Semifinals and final will be 15 or 20 overs match, the decision will be made based on the time available.
Team registrations are set at £90 (£10 per player), payment must be made one week prior to the tournament date. Teams will be selected on first come first serve approach so register as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
