LMV thumped by SKLP

London Maccabi Vale 2nd XI suffered a heavy defeat against SKLP at a blustery Rowley Lane.

Having lost the toss in this Middlesex Sunday League Division Two contest, LMV spent the afternoon chasing leather. A couple of close shouts early in the innings, that did not their way, may have changed things. However, a combination of bowling down the wrong line, poor ground fielding and a couple of dropped chances meant SKLP amassed 325 from their 40 overs.

Michael Ziff maintained a good line and length throughout the innings in which Jonathan Cantor (2-33) Jonathan Rubeck and Andy Landsberg were the wicket-takers.

In reply, eight an over was always going to be a challenge and LMV fell well short. Only three batsmen reached double figures.

Jonathan Freedman batted superbly in his best-ever knock of 68. He showed great control and shot selection dispatching the ball to all parts of the ground hitting 12 4's and two sixes. This was an innings that will surely mean he will be batting higher up the order in future.
