A superb display of bowling saw North Mymms to an incredible 165-run win over Radlett in the Saracens Herts Cricket League Premier Division.

The visitors to Radlett’s Cobden Hill ground had already made 231-9 in their 60 overs but what followed was not expected – as they bowled the hosts out for just 66.

Rhys Wynne got four wickets while Hamza Qayyum and Imran Qayyum both bagged three each with Radlett all out by the 30th over.

Only three Radlett men made double figures, Fraser Crawford and Kabir Toor in the first three of the order.

But when top scorer Muhammed Adil Zareef was the sixth man out for 16, the remaining four wickets fell for just 12 runs.

Wynne finished on 4-34 while Hamza managed 3-19 and Imran 3-12.

Mo Oryakhel and Steve Snell managed North Mymms’ biggest partnership, putting on 58 for the fourth wicket, and most of them came from Snell who went on to top score with 64 before being caught by Crawford off the bowling of Toor.

His was a fiery knock, coming at a run a ball and featuring nine fours and a six, but there were some patient innings in there as well, Oryakhel’s 19 came off 39 balls while Andy Lewis managed 35 from 74 deliveries.

Toor proved Mymms’ biggest threat, claiming 3-84 from his 20 overs but Joe Cooke managed 2-31 as well.

The victory, coupled with Totteridge Millhillians’ defeat at WGC, means Mymms are now just three points off the top spot while their top four play-off chances look promising with a 45-point cushion to West Herts in fifth.

Mymms go to Totteridge on Saturday as the battle for the title intensifies.

It proved to be a fabulous day all round for the Home Farm cricket club as the second team enjoyed an equally-comprehensive win over Parkfield & Headstone.

Again it was the bowlers who shone in the eight-wicket success.

Adam Davies was the pick of them with 4-22 as Parkfield were all out for 96 although David Searle, Roshan Dan, Harry Cobb and Jack Cobb all chipped in with one.

And Mymms got to their target with just two wickets lost, Davies adding 40 with the bat and Simon Clements unbeaten on 45.
