Younus Shamim (1-18) ended a big partnership, while Ayaz Karim (1-48) also had success as Aztecs reached 208-7 from their 45 overs.

It was only a matter of time for Sajal Rahman (21), Younus Shamim and Shahriar Zahid to bring Neo safely home and secure the championship.

Captain and club secretary Ayaz Karim said; "It was the first year for us in a Saturday competitive league and our boys are speechless after this wonderful season.
