Old Albanian thirds kept their unbeaten record going with victory over Holtwhites Trinibis.

The Saracens Herts League Divisionn 10A champions were sent into the field after losing the toss and saw their rivals make 201-8 from 50 overs.

Veteran Tom Preest found some turn to finish as the pick of the OAs attack with a fine 5-35 haul.

And Tom Cresswell set the tone in reply, hitting five boundaries in a quickfire 23 to set OAs on their way.

Mazhar Iqbal (38) and Arif Hassan (71) continued the good work, before a hard-hit 41 from Gyan Rhodes saw OAs to their target in only 35 overs, with four wickets in hand.
