Jack Carter Pavilion side beaten by 46 runs at home to Hutton last time out

Hainault & Clayhall will hope Saturday’s trip to Upminster brings about a first Shepherd Neame Essex League Division One win of the season.

The Jack Carter Pavilion outfit suffered a 46-run defeat at home to Hutton in their last outing last weekend.

After losing the toss and being put into the field, the hosts bowled Hutton out for 235, with Ryan Hurst ending with figures of 6-37.

The Hainault reply got off to a slow start, with opening pair Zoheb Sharif (six) and Irfan Shah, who went for a golden duck, both departing cheaply.

Though Mousshin Ismail (62) and Omar Akram (53) offered some resistance, it was not enough as the home side were all out for 198 in reply.

Hainault will hope they can deliver a better all-round display as a team this weekend as they look to end their wait for a league win by triumphing at Upminster.

And if they can get the win on Saturday, Hainault will hope it kickstarts their term.
