North Mymms will travel to Radlett for their Saracens Hertfordshire Premier Division opener in good form after seeing off Tring Cricket Club with relative ease in Saturday’s friendly.
Tring started badly, with both openers out for ducks, before Andy Dixon steadied the ship with 33 before being bowled by Syed Kazmi.
The visitors plodded on but could not find their rhythm and with three more bowled for zero, they posted a paltry 121 all out from 33 overs.
After a strong bowling display, it was the turn of the batsmen to see Mymms over the line.
Wicket-keeper Hamza Qayyum hit 47 before being bowled as the hosts tore into Tring’s total.

However, an unbeaten partnership of 64 from Kazmi and new boy Jamie Southgate ensured an eight-wicket victory inside 21 overs.
