Taranjit Mankoo has played a starring role on debut for Leagues to help his side pick up an 80-run victory over Exies Eagles.
After winning the toss and electing to bat it looked like it was going to be a rough afternoon for the Panthers as Michael Cudmore (0) fell to the bowling of Connor Bock while Arjun Kamboj claimed the wicket of Logan Matheson (0) in the following over.
With the score on 2/4, captain Jimmy Binks and Reece Matheson went about starting the rebuild of their side's innings before Binks (13) became Kamboj's second victim.
Matheson and Mankoo were then able to completely swing the game in their side's favour as they lifted their side from 3/20 after four overs to be 3/76 as the side went to their first drinks break in the 10th over.
The pair were able to push their side towards the 100-mark before Exies were able to pick up one of the wickets they needed with Duane Ashcroft picking up the wicket of Matheson (36).
Mankoo was able to post his fifty while alongside Noah Gaske the pair pushed their side towards a defendable total before Mankoo's (62) innings was brought to a close after he was run out by Billy Evans.
Gaske (37) was the only of the remaining Leagues batsmen to get a start as they were bowled out for 170 in the 32nd over with Evans (2/7), Kamboj (3/37) and Bock (2/34) taking the remaining wickets.
It was a difficult start to the reply for Exies Eagles as Dan Hillam claimed the wickets of Craig Burge (0) and Marc Tucker (2) in the first over.
Aditha Jayasuriya and Bock looked to get their side back on track with a 23-run partnership before Hillam struck again in the fifth over.
Sam Breed was the next to try and support Bock as the pair looked to get there side to drinks without the loss of another wicket, but Fawad Shah ended those hopes as he claimed the wickets of Breed (1) and Bryce Rogers (0).
Bock was able to keep the score ticking over but finding support at the other end would be the difficult part for the Eagles.
Shah followed up his two quick wickets with those of Evans (0) and Ryan Bock (4) while Vilish Patel picked up the wicket of Duane Ashcroft.
Bock (51*) was able to post his fifty before Hillam (4/15) removed Kamboj (4) while Patel (2/10) took the wicket of Warren Bock (0) to see Exies bowled out for 90.
