By Danny Caro, July 19, 2010

Belmont & Edware 1sts recorded a thumping 167-runs over West Middlesex in the Middlesex League Division Three.

This was a victory built on a platform provided by Daniel Abrahams (47) and Jonathan Evans (66), well-supported by the rest of the team.

Everyone chipped in, with every batsman reaching double figures, and key performances from Warren Averbuch (24*) and Ami Wynbourne (19*, including eight from one ball) at the death taking the total over the 300-run mark.


MAL within touching distance of promotion

By Danny Caro, July 19, 2010

MAL’s promotion hopes were given a boost as they claimed a crushing eight-wicket victory over promotion rivals Kensington & Chelsea in the Middlesex Sunday Cricket League Division Three.

Skipper Gav Lebens won the toss and chose to field on what is always a very quick scoring ground at Old Camdenians.


LM Vale close in on Middlesex League title

July 19, 2010

London Maccabi Vale 1st marched 12 points clear at the top of the Middlesex Sunday League Division Two table after beating Finchley by 62 runs at Arden Field.

A third wicket partnership of 161, last 107 minutes and 24 overs, between opener Danny Caro and captain Adam Brand enabled LMV to post 258-5 from their 40 overs.

Things did not start well however as Alex Haffner was caught behind attempting a pull while Daniel Becker was caught behind.

BECC youngsters prove that the future is bright

By Danny Caro, July 19, 2010

Belmont & Edgware 3rd XI suffered a 92-run defeat against Weldon.

Stand-in BECC captain Blasebalk won the toss and looking at the short boundaries and glut of young bowlers, decided to field. Based on the performance of the young team featuring six Under 17 players, it was the right decision as the strength was in the bowling.


Solomon century helps Israel end losing streak

By Danny Caro, July 19, 2010

Israel bounced back from three consecutive defeats at the ICC Europe Division 2 Championships in Guernsey with a 30-run victory over Gibraltar.

Batting first, Israel's Eshkol Solomon became only the second Israeli to score an international century, playing a lone hand in guiding Israel to 200.

Earlier, Shailesh Bangerra (27) and Josh Evans (17) gave Israel a useful start, adding 44 for the first wicket, before a dramatic collapse left the Israeli innings in tatters at 102-7.


Israel well beaten by Guernsey at Euro Championships

By Danny Caro, July 14, 2010

Israel lost its second consecutive match at the European Division 2 Cricket Championships, going down by eight wickets to hosts Guernsey.

Following yesterday’s three-run defeat against Norway, a poor batting display saw Israel dismissed for 86 after 35.2 overs at Port Soif.

Guernsey cruised home, finishing on 90-2 after 23 overs with Stuart Le Provost finishing unbeaten on 42.

Israel have a rest day on Thursday before games on consecutive days against France, Gibraltar and Germany.


Late collapse costs Israel at Euro Championships

By Danny Caro, July 14, 2010

Israel suffered an agonising three-run defeat in their ICC European Division 2 Championships opener against Norway in in Guernsey.

A dramatic late order collapse saw Israel lost five wickets for just 10 runs to fall just short at College Field. Chasing what looked a slightly below par Norwegian total of 204, a 6th wicket partnership of 61 between Gabriel Schachat and Yanik Razporker looked to have set up the win, before the intervention of Zaheer Ashiq.


Lederman hat-trick inspires Vale 2nds

By Danny Caro, July 13, 2010

A hat-trick from Benjamin Lederman earned London Maccabi Vale 2nd a 48-run victory over Olympians.

After a slightly belated start due to the late arrival of the opposition, LMV were asked to bat first on a very dry Rowley Lane wicket.

David Freedman and Benjamin Lederman opened the innings together for the second consecutive week. Freedman did not last long as he was bowled in the second over. Jeff Permutt came in at No. 3, and he and Lederman played carefully against accurate bowling.
