This weekend was the annual Aware / Bharat Army Foundation Cricket Tournament held at Luton Town & Indians Cricket Club.

The current holders of the Cup were hot favourites again to win the tournament however the Bharat Army strengthened their team and were looking to put in a strong show themselves.

8 teams took part in the tournament with 2 groups of 4. The top 2 in each group playing off for a spot in the final.

This year we welcomed teams from across the U.K. including Teams from Milton Keynes and Leicester.

It was a well-supported event with a number of Bharat Army members turning up to support the teams. And they were not disappointed with the entertainment on show!

Bharat Army won 2 matches and lost 1 and made it to the semi-finals. Here they lost to a very young and talented Leicester team.

The 2nd Semi Final was contested by holders Luton and Milton Keynes with Luton holding form to make it to the final.

The final was full of excitement with Luton scoring 9 runs off the last over to secure victory. They retain the cup – Well done Luton again!

Thank you for all that attended the event and for those who contributed to the raffle and auction.

Details of how much money was raised will be available soon.
