Sky also secured the Division Two title with victory over Mile Tailenders in a reduced 14-over contest, smashing 188-2 with brothers Nozmul and Aleem Hussain both hitting quick-fire 50s alongside Rizwan Siddiqui's enjoyably 40.

Victoria Lounge secured promotion to Division One with victory over Expat as Stefan Phillipson smashed a rapid 50, including four drops on the same side of the boundary helping him to five sixes.

Tom Stevens carried his bat for a patient 47, alongside Rob Tatton-Brown (32) as Victoria Lounge hit 171-6 before Expat fell to 110-3 with Steve Britto hitting 50.
