After scoring 213-9 off 45 overs, the hosts fought hard in the field to win by six runs

North London were involved in a tight contest with Indian Gymkhana on Saturday and triumphed by only six runs in the Middlesex County League Division Three.

After scoring 213-9 from their 45 overs, the hosts backed it up in the field with a fighting display to restrict the away side to 207-9.

It earned a hard-fought win which keeps North London in fourth position ahead of this weekend’s home clash with leaders Brentham.

A solid batting display was enough to claim a 10-point success over Gymkhana as Vivek Lodhia top scored with 51 off 102 balls for the hosts.
