North Mymms confirmed their place in the end-of-season play-offs as a comfortable six-wickets win over Potters Bar clinched third place in the Saracens Hertfordshire Cricket League Premier Division.

They will now face Totteridge Millhillians in Saturday’s semi-final with the winners of WGC and Radlett waiting in the final.

The defeat for Bar means they finish sixth.

Jigar Mehta was the star for Mymms, claiming 5-38 as they bowled the visitors to Home Farm out for just 86.

Rhys Wynne took 3-15 and Rhett Bridgens 2-33 as they wrapped the Bar innings up inside 25 overs.

Charlie Scott top-scored for the visitors with 20.

In reply, Mymms got to their target in the 21st over.

Openers Hamza Ahmed and Hamza Qayyum made 60 for the first wicket before Thilan Walallawita and Luke Chapman struck.

The bowlers shared another two wickets but it was never going to be enough.
