BANGLADESH CCF were crowned inaugural champions of the Mahua Super 8 Challenger Cup last weekend - scooping a £1,000 jackpot.

The club secured a thrilling three-run victory over Island Community Cricket Club in the final of the 10 overs a side competition at Victoria Park to seal a memorable triumph.

Both sides had overcome strong semi-final opponents to reach the final, with Island securing an eight-wicket win over La Porte Des Indes the previous day and Bangladesh overcoming Ardent with just three balls to spare.

In a final between the only two unbeaten teams in the competition, Bangladesh made an impressive start despite losing the toss and eventually made 94 for five in 10 overs.

Island would have been confident of overhauling that total but they made a slow start in reply and eventually came up short as some fine bowling at the death restricted them to just 91 for three and sparked Bangladesh's victory celebrations.

The man of the series award was given to Shumon Sharif from Bangladesh, who scored over 150 runs in four matches and took five wickets.
