Ismail hit two sixes and six fours in his 68 off 89 balls, before Connor Whetstone ended his stay, after which Omar Akram (22) gave support to Maruf Chowdhury.

Ryan Hurst hit four sixes in an unbeaten 32 off just 18 balls, putting on an unbroken 100 with Chowdhury, who finished on 104 not out from just 82 deliveries, after hitting four sixes and 11 fours as Hainault closed on 318-4.

Hutton got off to a good start in reply as Adam Holdgate (32) put on 114 with Vivian Paver, who added another 55 with Julian Whetstone before finally succumbing to Hurst for 120 off just 77 balls, having hit nine sixes and eight fours.

Cameron Tredgett added 44 off 48 balls, hitting a six and four fours, before falling to Hurst (2-58) and Whetstone was run out soon after for 41 to leave the hosts 268-4.

Matthew Scammell and Patterson fell in quick succession to Bilal Makodia and Muhammad Rahim, with the latter also dismissing Connor Whetstone.

But Hutton captain Dan Hagger held firm and had late support from Connor Limrick, finishing unbeaten on 38 from just 30 balls as the home side won by three wickets with seven balls to spare.
