North Mymms and Potters Bar both made it two wins from two in the Herts Cricket League Premier Division - the latter scoring a comprehensive derby success over Old Owens.

The victors make up half of the four sides still with a perfect record after two weeks of the new season, and both were impressive successes.

The winning margin in the derby at Old Owens was 113 runs and came after the hosts put the visitors into bat.

They couldn't get much joy with the new ball, conceding many wides and offering plenty of loose deliveries that James Scott and James Seward took full advantage of.

Scott especially was batting beautifully and with a towering six over mid-wicket he eased to his half century in just 44 balls.

He perished for 53 on the next ball though, trying to reverse sweep a straight one.

Reece Hussain managed just eight after this and Owens may have sensed a recovery.

It never came though as Charlie Scott (47), new signing Ashen Kavinda (44) and Thilan Walallawita (41 not out from just 20 balls) made a big impact.

The biggest impact though was from Seward who completed his first 50 of the summer in 77 balls and eventually fell for 73 as he holed out to mid-off.

It was still enough for Bar to reach 293-5 and put the match seemingly beyond Owens.

That wasn't something they agreed with though as Ralph Lane and Matthew Plater played superbly.

After a circumspect start that saw just 28 on the board after 10 overs, they suddenly race to a 100 partnership in 128 balls.

Fortunately for Bar, Walallawita ran out Lane out for 45 with a direct hit from mid-on, the score at that point on 102 and with 192 needed in 164 balls.

A change of ends for skipper Luke Chapman doubled down on that and when Plater was out for 54, the rest of the order offered little else.

Chapman went on to claim 5-43, his second successive five-wicket haul, while there was 2-13 from Kavinda as the innings ended in the 47th over for 180.

Mymms meanwhile had a comprehensive 124-run success at Shenley Village.

And it was as straight-forward as it sounds.

Put into bat, Mymms made 301-7 in their 50 overs, thanks mostly to a wonderful 149 not out from Viv Paver.

That came off 135 deliveries and contained 17 fours and a six.

He was at the forefront of two match-winning partnerships after the visitors had found themselves on 31-2.

First he made 75 alongside Nesan Jeyaratnam (32) before a fourth-wicket stand of 152 with Armaan Randhawa, who got 67 in 74 balls, six of them going to the boundary.

The Shenley reply was not so much kept in check but rather had the life strangled out of it.

They finished on 177 in the 47th over with only brief resistance at the top of the order, most notably from Mo Rizvi with 53.

The former Welwyn man was the ninth wicket to fall with the score on 134-9, having arrived at the crease at 47-2.

Sabarish Ganesh took top honours for Mymms with the ball, claiming 3-48, although he was closely followed by two wickets for each of Zaid Kureshi (2-18), Rhys Wynne (2-19) and Dharmarajsinh Jhala (2-30).

Saturday's fixtures sees North Mymms go to Radlett and Old Owens off to Shenley, while Potters Bar host Bishop's Stortford.
