In excellent conditions at FB1, the Bankers won by six wickets reaching their winning target in 9.1 overs after earlier restricting Mavericks to 84 for eight in 14 overs.

HSBC captain Archie Irtizaali said: ‘We only formed the team in January and to win a title in our first season is fantastic.

Last night was a great team performance.

‘Our bowling was disciplined and we worked really hard in the field.

Restricting Mavericks to 84 in 14 overs was a fine achievement.

‘Sensible batting got us home in the end and we are delighted.

All our players bar one work for HSBC and I’m proud of them all.

It’s been a pleasure being captain and although we’ve had individual brilliance in some games it’s been team ethic and spirit that has been key to our success.’ Daniel Ireland and Patrick Kelly put on an unbeaten fifth-wicket partnership of 44 to steer HSBC to victory.

Earlier the pair were both among the wickets in four-over spells Kelly taking three for 16 and and Ireland two for 20.
