MK City will face Westcroft in the Milton Keynes Sunday League Cup final after both sides were victorious in their respective last four ties at the weekend.

Good lower order knocks from Saqib Akhlaq (29 not out) and Asif Iqbal (32 not out) saw MK City to a two wicket win over Wolverton Town, while Westcroft enjoyed a far more comfortable 160 run success against Stony Stratford, with Andrew Iqbal (72) and John Iqbal (4-25) the heroes.

Wolverton reached 171-7 thanks to Michael Yeates and Kabir Arif who both made 36 as most of their team-mates struggled to score runs. But despite making slightly hard work of it, MK City won the tie on 175-8.

Meanwhile Westcroft hit a very impressive 281-9 at Stony and the home side were seen off for just 121 in reply.
