Madrid United won the crucial title match with Madrid in the Regional League but did not get the 17 point spread required to wrestle the championship away from their opponents.
Knowing that a good score was essential to have any chance of closing the points gap United batted first and managed 258 all out. Humayoun, who has been Madrid United’s star performer with the bat all year scored another fine century before finally falling on 120.
With four points with the ball, Madrid were now 21 points ahead prior to going into bat. Relaxing knowing the championship was won Madrid were all out for just 141. This was academic to the Madrid second string players who through the course of the season had earned the right to be crowned Champions of the Madrid Regional League.
The end result of the match was 20 points to Madrid United and 7 points to Madrid meaning Madrid won the league by just 3 points.
Congratulations to Murari and his team on competiting competitively in the ECCL Second Division and winning the Madrid Regional League from all at Cricket Espana.
