Although the title has gone, Luton Pakistanis produced a stunning performance against bottom club Kingsway CC to keep in touch with second-placed Majestics.
Pakistanis batted first and, with Mohammed Haroon’s 23 giving them a decent start, they found it hard in the middle overs as Danial Ilyas (2-25) and Aftab Ali (3-17) kept things tight.
But it was left to some brutal hitting from Jilani Kabir (31 not out) and Irfan-Ul-Haq (16 not out) to push their side to 139-6.
Kingsway, who could have climbed out of the relegation zone with a win, did not get going as Tasir Hussain and Irfan-Ul-Haq claimed two wickets each to leave them on 94-8, despite Tabraiz Khan hitting 27.
Awais Fareed smashed 79 as Luton CC, 147-6, moved into second place in Division One by overcoming Luton Cricketers, 124-7.
