By Simon Griver, October 4, 2010

Ben Sahar has been reinstalled into the Israel's 26-man squad after initially being omitted by manager Luis Fernandez ahead of the Euro 2012 qualifiers at home to Croatia on October 9 and away to Greece on October 12.

But he was given a reprieve after Maccabi Petach Tikvah striker Omer Damari withdrew this morning due to injury.

MAL finish on a high

By Danny Caro, September 28, 2010

MAL finished their 2010 season in style with a win off the final ball against South Loughton CC at Old Camdenians on Sunday.

On a blustery rainy day, it was probably only due to the fact that it was the final day of the season that the game was completed at all.

South Loughton won the toss and chose to bat, and were quickly in trouble, as Anthony Cowan found some early swing to bowl Battle for 1 and Shearer for 0, leaving the score at 7-2.
