A century stand of 119 from Kabir Toor was not enough for Radlett as they fell to a two-wicket defeat against Letchworth Garden City on Saturday.

Toor's knock formed a hefty chunk of Radlett's final total of 254-7 from their 60 overs, a score they would have felt they could defend.

He was not the only Radlett man to have success with the bat and Joe Cooke fell just short of a half-century as he departed for a useful 48.

There was little support elsewhere in the Radlett ranks and Fraser Crawford and Will Wright were the next highest scorers as the openers both posted scores of 16.

Only three more of the Radlett batsmen made it into double figures and Abhay Hirani and Archit Goenka had particularly poor outings on their way to scoring three and two respectively.

Taking to the field, Radlett looked to be in a position where they could apply genuine pressure to the City order and did just that.

They came up just short in their attempts to dismiss Letchworth and were once again led in their cause by Toor.

He picked up 4-48 to be Radlett's most successful bowler and, similarly to with the bat, was supported well by Cooke.

A pair of wickets arrived for Cook and he closed the day with figures of 2-56 while Fakir Dungaria also chimed in with 2-22.

Despite the pressure being on Letchworth, Radlett's opponents managed to get over the line with 54.3 over son the board.

The defeat will have come as a shock to many as it saw bottom of the table Letchworth record only their second win this season.

Radlett will look to dust themselves down and make a return to winning ways when they take on North Mymms at home tomorrow.

Doing so will be far from easy against a side sitting second in the Hertfordshire Cricket League Premier Division and well in the race to be crowned 2018 champions.
