Day Two Report
Some wonderful action was seen on the second day of the 2018 Chiang Mai Sixes and spectators needed to be at the ground early to see Kashmir Thunder overcome Clifton Hill Stray Cats in the first match of the day in a classic encounter. NCL Dynamites from Bangladesh gave an outstanding display as they scored 104 in five overs against Lord's Taverners. St Francis de Sales lost to Yorkshire Puddings in the Cup semi-finals last year but they gained emphatic revenge on their rivals as Aaron Maynard claimed three catches and a wicket then scored an unbeaten 29 in a remarkable all-round display. Thunder, Dynamites and St Francis have all now have two wins in the Players' Section and the other front-runners are UN Irish Pub who gained their second victory by defeating Roosters. Former Bangladesh captain Faruque Ahmed played for NCL Masters against Lanna as Thai junior Chaiwut dismissed first-class player Rubaiyat in an exciting last-over finish. Darjeeling are the leading team in the Gentlemen's Section after two convincing victories and competitive cricket continued right to the end of the day as newcomers Beijing Ducks, watched by team-mates back in China, beat Awali, and the young Thai Thevada side defeated Darwin Dilettantes in the last match of the day.
