Newham College confirmed their status as the Essex CCB/UEL Indoor League champions with victory over Hackney Community College last night.

Having beaten nearest rivals NewVIc a week earlier, they claimed a five-wicket win over Hackney and will receive their trophy on April 1.

Hackney batted first and lost their final wicket to the last ball of their 10 allocated overs.

Captain Hassan Ahmed (28) and Soyfur Rahman (15) reached double figures, while Hamza Omar (2-19) ended with the best bowling figures for Newham.

Newham lost just the single wicket in their run chase and reached the target of 85 with exactly two overs left.

Mujakkir Hussain (0) was the only man dismissed, as Muhammad Rahim and M Kaffurudeen (both 7) were the two not out batsman to see them home to glory.

Hackney Community College’s miserable afternoon was complete when they also lost to George Monoux College.

Hackney batted first and reached 74 all out, with Mohammed Fahad (18), T George (15) and Rahman (14) the most notable contributors to the target.

However, just like they had done against Newham, Hackney struggled to take wickets and George Monoux sealed victory with 11 balls to spare.

Meanwhile, Barking & Dagenham College beat BSix College by a comfortable 43 runs in the other match played.

Barking & Dagenham posted a dangerous 106-4 from their 10 overs, as Abdul Rehman (33) and skipper Jakir Hussain (24) led the charge.

Rakib Ullah (1-20) did his best to peg them back, but in truth, BSix never looked likely to reach the total and fell some way short in the end.

Ullah’s (23) was the only real score of note, as good bowling from Rehman (1-14) and Jawad Khan (1-23) sealed the win for Barking & Dagenham.

Newham College: Hassam Tariq, Hamza Omar, Mahattir Kaffurudeen (captain), Fazil Fajarul, Zaheer Daleel (coach), Zeeshan Khan, Mujakkir Hussain, Muhammad Rahim.
