As Chambers dropped anchor to bat through the innings, Milan Patel displayed a fine array of shots in his 77, and those two helped Wanstead to 291-5.

"John batted amazingly," purred skipper Arfan Akram. "It was great to see him back to his best form and he batted pretty much all the way through, so we could bat around him.

"Milan was awesome too, as he really took the game to them and allowed us to get 290, which was a very competitive total."

Green started strongly in reply, as opening bowlers Araif Saeed and Merv Westfield were hit out of the attack, but then came Chambers (3-33) and Fayyaz to halt their attempt.

"They came at us strong, and were 132-2 off 18 overs, but the wilyness of Chambers and Mo was enough," said Akram.

"Mo might not have even played as he dislocated his little finger last week, but he wanted to turn out and that shows his character.

"To finish things off with a hat-trick too is some effort from him."

Wanstead, travel to South Woodford this weekend.
