Winner takes all in a title decider
Hayes seconds win with game to spare
The new champions suffered the disappointment of relegation last year but have bounced back to the fifth tier at the first time of asking.
Hayes welcomed Windsor to Hayes Park in good conditions on Saturday and captain Shaikh Noman had no qualms in batting first after winning the toss.
They lost opener Amin Muyasser (2) very quickly into the innings but Josh Painter (17) and Shahid Ahmed (26) showed solidity to rebuild the innings against some hostile bowling.
Ekhtasham Naeem (27) was top scorer for the home side as they reached a 145 total, which would require some good work with the ball to see the trophy safely secured.
Luckily for Hayes supporters, Farhan Raja (4-26) and Claudius Wayland (4-25) were on their game as the weather deteriorated in west London.
Man of the match Raja claimed the final Windsor victim with just 10 balls of the innings remaining to spark wild celebrations on the sidelines.
Meanwhile, spectators are being encouraged to attend the third annual cricket match between a team of medics comprising doctors from Bishops Wood Hospital and Hillingdon NHS Trust against Ickenham Ladies on Sunday.
The match starts at noon (doors open at 11.30am) and takes place at Eastcote Cricket Club, Haydon Road.
Proceeds from the sale of refreshments go to CURA, the charity which supports people with limited means suffering from breast cancer in Hillingdon and the Home Counties.
All are welcome to come and watch.
