NewVic began the day with an 11-run win over UEL.

Batting first, NewVic struck 102-5 from their 10 overs with A Hussain (29) and captain Sohail Khan (19) the two top scorers.

Skipper Scott Silver (29) got the UEL run-chase off to a good start, before A Butt (20) chipped in.

But Sabik Ahmed (1-24) impressed with the ball, as the University of East London fell short on 91-4.

NewVic backed up their win with another quickly afterwards, beating Tower Hamlets by a slender margin of six runs.

Again, NewVic batted first and posted a respectable total of 93 all out with the influential Sabik Ahmed (11) run out off the final ball of the innings.

Nazmul Ahmed (37) led the charge for Tower Hamlets, but more good work from Sabik Ahmed (1-15) saw NewVic home.

Barking & Dagenham College also managed to edge past Tower Hamlets in the last match of the day, claiming a two-wicket victory.

Tower Hamlets reached 90 all out in their innings, largely thanks to Sadik Ahmed (45) after impressive work from opening bowlers Abdul Rehman (2-30) and Jawad Khan (2-23).

Captain Jakir Hussain (25) and Kamran Ali (22) got Barking off to a blistering start, only to see the side slip to 81-3.

However, Jawad Khan (7) saw Barking & Dagenham to another vital victory as they look to maintain their current position of fourth in the table.

For the past six months, employers and employees have been adapting to ways of working from home. The green light has now been given to many people to go back to offices safely. From flexible hours and staggered starting times to deep cleaning, we’re getting ready for new ways of working.

School’s in for summer – and beyond – with health experts agreeing that pupils safely returning to their studies is “positively” the right thing to do. It’s vital for all children’s welfare, not just in terms of students’ future education but also mental and physical well-being, as well as social interaction of classmates.

The NHS Test and Trace system provides protection for family, friends, colleagues and the community, and is here to keep all of us safe and allow us to enjoy summer safely. We take a look at how the system is working and talk to one member of the thousands of team members about her experiences.
