Cork Harlequins clinch 2016 Junior Cup

Cork Harlequins held off a brave fightback from Limerick to clinch the 2016 Junior Cup at the Mardyke.

Defending a total of 181, Cork Harlequins seemed in command with the Shannonsiders reduced to 65-5 at one stage but a brave fightback by the lower order saw Limerick come within just 12 runs of victory thanks to excellent innings from both Kaasim Alam and Mustafa Sidiqi.

Mushtaq was the star man for Cork Harlequins making 31 with the bat and 2-36 off his nine overs.
