Nasir Uddin (23), Tarek Ahmed (18), Muhammad Shahalom (16) and R Islam (15) all contributed with the bat.
Meanwhile, all of George Monoux’s wickets came through excellent work in the field.
In response, Khalil Khan (31) and Owais Abdul-Rehman (30) retired, as their team clinched an exciting last-ball victory.
