Landau steers MAL to victory

By Danny Caro, September 21, 2010

MAL picked up their 15th win of the 2010 season with a five-wicket win away to Old Parkonians in Ilford.

Parkonians won the toss and chose to bat, with the pitch looking pretty well-grassed. The opening batsmen struggled to get the ball away with Mark Landau and Charlie Sherrard bowling tight opening spells.

The first wicket came in Sherrard's seventh over, Grant Traub taking the catch at square leg, with Shaheed departing for 18.
