County claim 6th consecutive Premier Division title

Cork County clinched their 6th consecutive All Rounder Cricket Premier Division title with a game still to play following victory over Limerick at Adare on Saturday.

The Mardyke men knew that avoiding defeat against Limerick would mean they could not be caught at the top of the Premier Division table with the final game of the season still to play.

A dominant display with the ball in batsmen friendly conditions on the Adare artificial saw Cork County restrict the home side to just 120. The pick of the bowlers were Abubakar Saddique (3-7), Jose George (3-11) and Munster Reds skipper Jeremy Benton (3-25).

The reply go off to a shaky start with the loss of 3 early wickets but an excellent partnership between Saddique (43*) and opener Harry Broadhurst (35*) saw the visitors home with 6 wickets to spare.
