Nobel struck with the first ball of Rat Pack's reply and Abedin kept things tight before captain Ayaz Karim took 4-15.

Mohammed Hassan (2-25) and Umair Khan (2-28) nabbed braces as Shahriar Zahid also had success and Karim said: "Winning the league is always special for a club. Our boys worked really hard throughout the season and delivered something we can feel proud of for many more years to come."
