Radlett's top of the table clash with West Herts lived up to its billing as the clash came down to the final ball of the game and ended in a tense draw.

The result means the pair can't be separated at the summit of the Hertfordshire Premier Division and have taken 103 points each from their first five games of the season.

Radlett won the toss and elected to bowl first, a decision which looked to be a wise one as they put on 52 before losing their maiden wicket.

The introduction of brothers Dan and Ryan Woosley proved to be inspired as the duo picked up five wickets for just 59 runs, with the former sibling claiming an impressive 4-22.

The glut of quick wickets saw Radlett slump to 109-6 and they looked to be in danger of posting a tame total before the ever reliable Kabir Toor arrived at the crease.

His fine 71 was well supported by a useful score of 40 by Abhay Hirani to take Radlett's final total to 222-8, which looked to be a good score on a slow wicket.

The response from West Herts got off to a disastrous start and they lost their first wicket from only the third ball of the first over and then slipped to 16-2.

However, from their slow start Herts recovered well and began to make inroads into the Radlett total as a fifth-wicket partnership of 101 took the Stags score to 165-4.

Form then on the Stags looked to be favourites to come away from the game with victory before two quick wickets swung momentum back to Radlett.

With seven balls left, Herts needed 16 to win, but a six meant they went into the final over chasing nine to come away as victors.

They were eventually left needing three to win off the final ball of the day, but could only scramble two as the game ended in a draw which both sides were deserving of.

Radlett will look to keep their title pursuit on course with a win when they take on Welwyn Garden City at their home ground tomorrow.
