Harris and Lederman sparkle in LMV success

By Danny Caro, July 5, 2010

LMV secured their third league win of the season, and in doing so scored their highest total and their biggest winning margin since joining the Middlesex Sunday Cricket League.

WM won the toss and somewhat surprisingly asked LMV to bat first in this Division Three contest. David Freedman and the in-form Benjamin Lederman opened the innings which got off to a bad start when the in-form Lederman was bowled off an inside edge by the fifth ball of the match.

Lebens leads MAL home

By Danny Caro, July 5, 2010

MAL’s impressive debut season in the Middlesex Sunday Cricket League continued with a 67 run away win over Haryom CC at JFS on Sunday.

Skipper Gav Lebens won the toss and elected to bat on what looked to be a poor pitch. Quite how poor it was came to light early as Mark Landau and Russ Corin struggled to get the ball away.

Some loose bowling and a number of wides saw the scoreboard tick over, and a couple of imperious Corin boundaries meant that after 10 overs MAL were 39-0. Corin soon perished going for one ambitious shot too many, bowled for 18.

Harrow late show stifles Belmont

By Danny Caro, July 5, 2010

Belmont & Edgware were beaten by 50 runs as Harrow St. Mary’s maintained their unbeaten record with a 50-run victory.

HSM arrived at the Met Police Ground an hour late and after winning the toss, Belmont & Edgware captain Ashley Connick invited them to bat first.

In a match reduced to 35 overs a side, Daniel Geey and Warren Averbuch opened the bowling, before Neil Myeroff and Connick took over to stem the flow of runs in the middle overs.

Myeroff was miserly as ever, conceding only 20 from his seven overs and picking up two wickets, whilst Connick, bowling off-spin, took 3-36.

Niman inspires Salford

By Danny Caro, July 5, 2010

A decisive burst from stalwart Andrew Niman helped Salford end Manchester Maccabi’s 20-match unbeaten run as they claimed a 39-run victory in the NJCL.

On a cold and breezy day at Scholes Field in Cheadle, Salford captain Josh Henry lost the toss to Ray Tammam and Salford were invited to bat first. Andrew Niman opened with Glynn and the two mixed attack and defence to good effect, making 12 and 8 respectively.

Young pace bowlers Daniel Franks and Ashley Landes both looked good however, taking three wickets each as Salford struggled to 56-6 at the break.

By Danny Caro, June 29, 2010

London Maccabi Vale 2nd breezed into the semi-finals of the Maccabi National Knockout Cup after defeating Chigwell by nine wickets.

Chigwell won the toss and decided to bat in beautiful sunny conditions at Rowley Lane. Simon Renshaw continued his excellent form with an early wicket, which was soon followed up at the other end as Jonathan ‘The Vet’ Lederman held onto an excellent catch in the slips off Adam Morris's bowling (1-20 from six overs).

Andrew Greenwall Cohen took over from Morris and produced another brilliant display of miserly bowling, take 1-9 from his eight overs.

NJCL round-up

By Danny Caro, June 28, 2010

Manchester Maccabi moved to within five points of top spot after beating Bury & Whitefield by nine wickets.

On the hottest day of the year so far, it was home side Bury who really felt the heat as in-form Maccabi, who put them into bat, reaped early rewards.

Saunders was first to go - well bowled by Adam Goldstone and Shimon Harris managed to steady the ship for the next dozen overs with Stuart Levington but stuggled to score from the accurate bowling of Goldstone, Dan Franks, and ‘Volcanic’ Ash Landes.
