North Mymms have taken the battle for top spot in the SHCL Premier Division to the final weekend after a five-wicket home win over West Herts.

They remain five points behind Totteridge Millhillians with the leaders going to Potters Bar on Saturday and Mymms travelling to already-relegated Letchworth.

This week’s win saw the Home Farm cricket club opt to bowl first and bar 75 from West Herts’ opener Craig Sanders, it was a good decision.

The Qayyum boys both took three wickets, Imran 3-25 and Hamza 3-41, and Dharmarajasinh Jhala 2-30 as the visitors were bowled out for 189.

The reply saw Hamza Qayyum and Hamza Ahmed put on 64 for the first wicket and steady scores down the card saw Mymms home with more than 15 overs to spare.

Qayyum finished on 48 and skipper Nesan Jeyaratnam 45 but it was Steve Snell who provided the late entertainment, hitting 41 from just 25 balls.
