Upminster claimed a fourth successive win in Shepherd Neame Essex League Division One with a comfortable succeess against Orsett.

The visitors chose to bat after winning the toss, but Ejaz Khan (2-25) removed both openers to leave them 32-2.

Captain Paul Bennett put on 56 with Nawaz Ahmad Jan, before both fell to Nabeel Aziz, who claimed a third scalp to make it 108-5.

Oliver Peck (2-19) got in on the act with wickets either side of another from Aziz (4-33), with Shafiq Rahman and John Curtis also having success as the visitors were dismissed for 158 in the 44th over.

Upminster lost James Evans cheaply in reply and then saw Shahbaz Butt and Kiran Kullar depart in quick succession to leave them 41-3.

Alan Ison hit three sixes and four fours in his 42 off 29 balls and put on 52 with Louis Pickering.

Rahman failed to trouble the scorers, though, as Upminster slipped to 95-5 and Orsett sense an opening, before an unbroken 66-run stand for the sixth wicket saw the host to victory.

Pickering finished unbeaten on 35 from 37 balls after hitting six fours, while stalwart Terry Wyatt (35 not out) hit a six and six fours in his 39-ball innings as Upminster reached their target in the 30th over.
