HARROW lost ground in the MCCL Division two after a disappointing display away at top of the table North Middlesex.
Having won the toss the league leaders chose to bat and looked to have made a bad decision when Harrow restricted them to 17 for 2 with two early wickets.
Unfortunately an impressive start with the ball faded as the home side raced to 111 without losing another wicket.
Gopi Navaratnam was the pick of the bowlers with 3 for 61 but his good work was not enough to stop North Middlesex racing to a challenging total of 266 for 9 off 50 overs.
Harrow's reply was a disaster and in just under 30 overs they were dismissed for 78. Top scorer Tush Karia could only manage 21 and support was scarce as just two other batsman made double figures.
Harrow will now look to get the performance out of their minds as they prepare for the visit of Richmond - who will be looking to leapfrog the Payne's Folly outfit.
