The Herons chose to bat first after winning the toss, but saw Kishen Velani trapped lbw by Hornchurch captain Billy Gordon with only 11 runs on the board.

Aron Nijjar and Bilal Patel (34) put on 60 for the second wicket, before Muhammad Irfan dismissed both in quick succession to make it 82-3.

Irfan trapped Adnan Akram soon after, before Monty Panesar (2-33) got the verdict to dismiss Hassan Chowdhury and Jonathan Das with successive deliveries to make it 102-6.

Home skipper Joe Ellis-Grewal became the next victim of Irfan (4-29), before Marc Whitlock (3-15) mopped up the tail to dismiss Wanstead for 131 in 40 overs.

Ronnie Saunders led the Hornchurch reply, hitting a six and nine fours in his 45 from just 49 balls and dominating stands with Jamie Sorrell and Michael Bones.

But the visitors suffered a wobble as they slipped from 70-1 to 85-6, with Ellis-Grewal (3-31) and Mohammed Fayyaz Khan (3-34) sharing the wickets to fall.

Any Wanstead hopes of going on to claim victory were dashed by an unbroken 50-run stand between Bhajandip Singh Purewal (36 not out) and Zeeshan Khan, who saw Hornchurch to a four-wicket win in the 33rd over.

Wanstead’s lead at the top of the table was cut to nine points as a result of their loss, with Hornchurch 16 points behind in fourth place.
