The Bangladesh side hammered the CBB Postels as Syed Shahed reached retirement with the bat, before Queensland outfit, Surfers Paradise Demons were restricted to just 31 from five overs to set up a comprehensive victory.

The 11 team tournament has been enhanced for 2018 by the instant online scoring system, designed and implemented by Richard Lockwood of Lanna CC of Chiang Mai.

Holders, the Tripathi Group, playing as Tripathi Blue also got their defence off to an undefeated start with wins against Australia’s Southern Stars and then fellow Indian team Gauhati Hawks, as Pavinder Awana plundered the runs.

Another Indian club, Tayyarah are fielding two sides in their tournament bow. Tayyarah.com won both their games against Surfers Paradise and then Phuket ever presents CBB Postels with fine all round team performances.
