Luton Town & Indians clinch Beds County League title


Luton Town & Indians won the Bedfordshire County League Premier Division with a win at Wardown Park on Sunday.

Going into the game against Blunham knowing victory would guarantee the title, Luton tore into the Blunham batting, with Khizer Manzoor, Divyesh Patel and Al Mahmud Hasan taking 10-55 between them as they bowled them out for just 76.

Adnan Bashir then hit a quickfire 46 not out as they reached the championship winning victory target in just 13 overs.

The third team also sealed a championship of their own on Sunday as a 110 run home win over Henlow at Lancaster Avenue was enough to win the third division title in the Beds County Cricket League.

Mujahid Rasheed and Sajad Homyoon both hit 41 as they set Henlow 181 to win. Then Rashid Afridi and Mohammed Qamar took three wickets each as they were dismissed for just 70.
