London Tigers Cricket Club picked up the Asian Club of the Year Award at the 2014 Talk Home Mobile Asian Cricket Awards at Lord’s on Tuesday .

The club, which was represented on the night by ambassadors Jawar Ali and Abdus Salam, was formed to give an opportunity to play cricket to youngsters from deprived inner-city areas in boroughs including Camden, Tower Hamlets and Westminster.

On winning the award, Ali said: “I am really honoured London Tigers have won the club of the year award.

“This season has been one of the biggest and most momentous the club has ever had. We won the Pro14 T20 in east London. And in west London we won division four and the cup.

“One of our main aims is nurturing local talent to play at the highest level. We have the facilities [a new ground in Southall] and the coaching staff, so it will be great for us to develop future players for England and Middlesex, and I think the opportunity is there.”

Their award was presented by the former England captain Mike Gatting OBE.
