Dan Thatcher (1-15) was then introduced to the attack and bowled an excellent line and was rewarded with a wicket courtesy of a catch from Gary Sandford, one of three for the Redbourn wicket-keeper.
With Mymms recovering to 97-5 Redbourn were in danger of letting a good position slip, but the re-introduction of Jamal and the off spin of Faisal Khan (2-9) brought regular wickets and Mymms were eventually all out for 131.
Jamal was once again the pick of the bowlers taking five wickets for just 33 runs from 17 overs.
Redbourn were never in any real danger in their reply, as they reached their target off just 23 overs for the loss of only three wickets.
Chris Yorath got things going with a six in the second over on his way to 33 and Dan Roe once again batted well before he was caught on the boundary for 37 with just one run needed.
