HCPL Twenty20 Cup Round One

West Herts 207-6

Radlett 129-9

West Herts won by 78 runs

RADLETT’S challenge in the Home Counties Premier League Twenty20 campaign fell at the first hurdle as they went down by 78 runs.

With many first team regulars unable to make the Monday night game including skipper Shane Burger, the home side were forced to field an under strength side with Ben Thornhill skippering the team.

Shameel Ahmed was the pick of the bowlers for Radlett taking 2-13 from his two overs as West Herts posted 207-6 from their 20 overs. Matthew Smith did the most damage smashing eight 4s and two 6s on his way to 71.

Radlett’s reply got off to a steady start with opener Matthew Bell hitting three 6s on his way to 33 but four wickets from Ian Gurney and two from William Jones thwarted the Radlett challenge with only Jacob Reza (16), Richard Hardy (15) and Thornhill (32) able to make any contribution of note as they posted 129-9 from their 20 overs.

West Herts will now have to travel to Harpenden who progressed without playing after St Albans conceded in their game which was due to be played on Wednesday evening.
