Hainault & Clayhall had to settle for a draw in Essex League Division Two against Gidea Park & Romford, who held on after a late rain delay but saw their promotion hopes hit as they slipped to third.

Park captain Jamal Francis put the home side into bat after winning the toss, but the Hainault openers put on 49 before Shawn Findlay claimed the first wicket.

Stalwarts Shah and Ismail then put on 135 for the second wicket, before Zisan Abedin ran out Shah one run short of his century, having faced 94 balls and hit two sixes and 12 fours.

Dominic Hurst and Bhalandip Singh fell cheaply to Adam McKie, but Hainault captain Ryan Hurst hit a six and three fours in a quickfire 25.

McKie (3-74) dismissed Hurst for his third scalp, but Ismail hit out in the closing overs to reach 112 from 131 balls, with 15 fours, before being bowled from the penultimate ball of the innings by Park veteran Russ Collard, who struck again with the very last ball as Hainault closed on 282-6.

Park lost Kasi Hoq cheaply in reply to a run out, with Sagar Joshi dismissing James Pegram and Francis in quick succession to leave the visitors 48-3.

The dangerous Shawn Findlay fell to Singh after a quickfire 21, before Hainault skipper Ryan Hurst accounted for George Rogers, Matthew Tarr and Collard in quick succession to leave Park 113-7.

Zisan Abedin held firm at the other end and had support from Adam McKie, who was then run out with the total on 127.

And after Abedin fell four runs short of a half-century, having hit eight boundaries, to leave Park 142-9, it was left to stalwarts Richard Wall and Phil Ayres to hold out and see them to the close on 165-9.

Victory for promotion rivals Oakfield Parkonians saw Park fall 12 points behind second place, with the two sides set to meet in a crunch clash at Gallows Corner next weekend.
