Baldock began to falter and Shah was crucially dropped three times on his way to a well-made 59no. He was joined by Kevin Whitehead who smashed 39no in dashing style to take Hatfield to a seven-wicket win with an over to spare.
Ranjit Rayat bowled superbly and also took a wonder catch to rightly win the man of the match award for his efforts.
