Cropredy are Division 2 champions in the Banbury Indoor League after a thrilling final night of matches.

Three teams went into their games within a point of each other, but it was Cropredy who took the title after beating Banbury A by 32 runs.

That gave them a total of 132 points, the same number as Shipston, who overcame fellow title contenders Brough-ton off the last ball thanks to an unbeaten 50 by Marcus Ireland.

Cropredy took the crown having won their head-to-head fixture against Shipston-on-Stour.
