St Albans 121 lost to North Mymms 204 by 83 runs

ST ALBANS slipped to eighth place in the Division Two (East) table after a disappointing batting collapse against North Mymms.

After a lot of overnight rain and some wet patches on the wicket, this was definitely a toss both captains wanted to win.
