A highly dominant performance made it three wins from three for Bentley Heath as beat Hertford III by six wickets at home.

On a notoriously unpredictable wicket captain Ollie Hubbard elected to field first, hoping to make full use of his strong bowling line up. They did just that as Moshin picked up four wickets and Rohan Francis scored three.

Bentley Heath had a mini scare as they lost two wickets early on but were 63-2.

Still not home and dry, there were two golden ducks with Khuram Butt and Hassan Zeb failing to get the all-important run, but this came though just one ball later.

Bentley Heath are away at Radlett III next week as they aim to make it four wins from four.

The Second team, meanwhile, were on the wrong end of a 621-run thriller, the highest scoring game across the Saracens Leagues, as the initial 310 scored by Bentley Heath proved not enough on a batting dream against Reed III as they lost by four wickets.

Visiting captain Dave Tagg won the toss and elected to bat first with the hope his team could continue their unbeaten start.

Lahiru Weerasinghe and Craig Collis opened the batting, but the pace of the opening Reed bowlers proved too much for Weerasinghe, who was caught at second slip in the second over.

The returning Luke Peace joined Collis, but the latter was also unable to see the opening pair off and was caught again at second slip on 11, meaning after eight overs Bentley Heath were 31-2.

New signing Shan Alishah and Peace then set the tone of the next 30 overs of the rest of the game and, making use of the quick outfield, the pair scored frequent boundaries, including one massive six from Alishah which cleared the pavilion.

With 102 runs scored in 13 overs, Reed eventually made the breakthrough with Alishah just taking his eye off the slower ball having made his 50 and was bowled dead on the milestone.

Cheetah Bakrania then joined the force of Peace and their attractive ways meant the run rate was able to stay high.

Good running between the wickets and more frequent boundaries meant a further 121 were scored in 14 overs.

It was a good catch in the deep from Reed’s R Hughes that broke the partnership and ended a brilliant first innings of the season for Peace, scoring 103.

Bakrania fell soon after on 52 in an expensive over for the Heath with the wicket of incoming Terry Jones falling as well, both being bowled by the returning opener to see Bentley Heath 258-6 after 34 overs.

At eight down, Tagg joined James Medforth who had seen the batting line up crumble around him and was able to increase the run rate once more before Medforth was bowled for 12.

Tagg saw the Heath across the unexpected target of 300, making 21 not out as they finished 310-9.

The Heath would have felt fairly confident at tea defending, but cautious at the same time knowing the speed at which the outfield can run.

Weerasinghe and Medforth opened the bowling and got off to a good start, taking the first three wickets for little at 50-3 after 10 overs.

Although starting at a normally high run rate behind chasing 310, it was the 189-run partnership of M Robertson (108) and G Garrott (106) that essentially brought the game home for Reed.

Some excellent aggressive batting brought the hosts back on track and after 25 overs they were 234-4.

Alishah (43-1) finally made the breakthrough bowling Robertson while Garrott continued to push the score forward and, with the help of his partners, were able to not only stay on top of the run rate but stay ahead of it.

Increasingly frustrated Bentley Heath bowlers and fielders made numerous errors towards end of the Reed innings and with the assistance of 33 extras, the hosts made the 310 with five overs to spare.

Disappointed by defeat, the Heath remain confident after some very positive batting performances a still a positive start. They will be back at Wrotham Park as they host Hoddesdon IV next week
