Home captain Nick Ison chose to bat after winning the toss but Shafiq Rahman fell to Mousshin Ismail (2-6) for a 12-ball duck and was quickly followed back to the pavilion by Louis Pickering, who lasted just two deliveries.

Ryan Hurst (3-35) and Zoheb Sharif (4-23) got in on the act to reduce Upminster to 44-5 as young opening batsman Kiran Kullar (43) held firm at the other end.

Farid Butt was the only other batsman to reach double figures, though, as the hosts were skittled for 89 in 38 overs.

Irfan Shah (20) hit a six and two fours before falling to Pickering in reply, before Omar Akram (42 not out) and Ismail (23 not out) steered Hainault to their target in the 22nd over with an unbroken 63-run partnership.

A second successive defeat leaves Upminster at the foot of the table, following relegation from the Premier Division in 2017.
