Radlett earned their 12th consecutive win after they brushed aside Sawbridgeworth by seven wickets.

Their eighth Home Counties Division Two East victory in a row ensured they maintained their healthy lead at the top.

Radlett won and inserted the opposition.

Shane Burger and Chad Barrett got Radlett off to a great start. Burger had a catch dropped but found the edge on two other occasions in an opening spell of two for 12 in nine overs.

The rest of the bowlers continued to build the pressure and Sawbridgeworth were never let off the hook.

Barrett came back with an inspired spell in the heat after lunch to finish up with five for 25 off 13.2 overs and his first five-wicket haul for Radlett.

Fraser Crawford and Kabir Toor made another solid start with the bat and set up the platform for a comfortable victory.

Although the home team lost two late wickets, they cruised past the 128 needed for victory before tea.

Skipper Jono McLean said: “The next two matches are very important for us in terms of staying at the top of the table.

“They will go a long way in determining whether or not we can push on and win the league.”

Radlett’s next match is against Bishop’s Stortford.
