North London lost by three wickets in a low-scoring Middlesex League Division Two contest with Twickenham.

Captain Sam Bardon chose to bat after winning the toss, but saw his top three batsmen all fall to Thomas Grundy after getting into double figures.

Jordan Gregory and James Battcock succumbed to successive balls to make it 61-5, with Bardon following soon after having hit three fours in his 17 from 48 balls.

James Fell failed to trouble the scorers, making it 72-7, and North London were still to reach three figures when the ninth wicket went down.

But Dave Schout had support from last man Ted Greally to lift the total to 110 in the 41st over, finishing unbeaten on 23 from 60 balls.

You may also want to watch:

Freddie Issitt and Battcock reduced Twickenham to 0-2, with Issitt (2-15) striking again to make it 26-3.

Gregory (3-27) and Greally also had success to make it 77-7, but an unbroken 35-run stand saw Twickenham to their modest target in the 30th over.
