South Hampstead’s Sridharan Sriram stole the show with bat and ball but his side were unable to collect the full 10 points at North London and had to make do with a winning draw.

Sriram hit 107 off 109 balls while captain James Williams struck an unbeaten 91 as SH declared on 252-5 in Crouch End – and he then claimed bowling figures of 3-7 off eight overs, but NL held on to their last two wickets to avoid defeat at 182-8.

Williams opted to bat in Crouch End and, although Sebastian Rae (4) was caught and bowled by Tom Wakeford early on, Sriram and Leroy Shepherd reached 58-1.

Shepherd ended up with 43 off 44 balls before being caught by former SH man Sam Bardon off Freddie Issitt (1-34), and Sriram and Williams then shared a magnificent 189-run partnership which took the visitors to 247-3.

Sriram passed his ton before being caught by Jack Atchinson off Wakeford (2-67), and there was just time for Nish Patel and Fuad Ahmad to be run out for ducks before the declaration after 50 overs, with Williams staying unbeaten on 91.

Chasing 253, NL lost Atchinson (8) early on, caught by Shepherd off Muhammed Asif (1-33).

And, although Matt Hoyle and Bardon took the hosts to 65-1, they departed in quick succession, with Kirk Drummond (1-42) taking a return catch to remove Hoyle (22) and Patel (2-39) bowling Bardon, leaving NL 69-3.

Roshan Tennakoon (34) and Milo Jennings (38) put on 62 together, reaching 131-3, but Sriram prised them both out and Karthink Jagannathan (1-30) bowled Hussain Shabbir (9) before Sriram removed Jack Godfrey-Wood (5).

NL were now 165-7 but Ted Greally saw off 19 balls before departing for five, and Wakeford survived 40 balls to finish unbeaten on 19 alongside J Baker (1 not out) as the hosts frustrated SH.
