Radlett kept their Herts Cricket League Premier Division title hopes alive with a dramatic victory against Totteridge Millhillians.

Having set the visitors 228 to win at their Cobden Hill home, Radlett found themselves staring at a potential defeat with Totteridge needing six to win from the final over and two wickets in hand.

The first ball though saw Randeep Sanghera dismiss Joe Wray for 11 and the next three deliveries brought two singles and a dot.

It meant four was required from the final two balls and the game was over on the penultimate delivery with Saxena run out pushing for a second and Totteridge two runs short.

Sanghera finished with 4-49 while there was two wickets each for Noah Cornwall and Harvey Booth.

Earlier Nathan Smith had hit 81 in 83 balls while Rahil Thapar hit 41.

The result leaves Radlett second in the table, 27 points behind leaders Potters Bar.
