MAL edge past LMV 2nd

May 24, 2010

MAL scraped home by one wicket in their Middlesex Sunday Cricket League Division Three match against London Maccabi Vale 2nds on Sunday despite a fairly woeful bowling and fielding display.

Vale skipper Jon Lederman called correctly and opted to bat on a blisteringly hot day. The openers, Jeremy Harris, and Mark Spanjar started well but circumspectly against Yoav Lebens and Tony Wise. Spanjar survived a strong appeal for caught behind before he was trapped in front by Wise for 13 to leave the score at 30-1 in the 10th over.

NJCL round-up

By Zevi Saunders, May 24, 2010

The NJCL experienced mixed fortunes in two rep team matches.

The new project featuring an extended fixture list against higher-skilled opposition got underway with the 1st XI winning by 162 runs.

Opting to bat on a glorious sunny day, NJCL maintained a healthy run-rate of above five an over. Shaya Rabinowitz got the innings off to a flier with 18. But he and fellow opener Rosenlum fell in quick succession, prompting fears of a collapse.

Cricket round-up

By Danny Caro, May 17, 2010

The weather was the only winner in London yesterday as the community’s cricket teams were left frustrated by a mid-afternoon downpour.

Bad weather ruined what was shaping up to be a fantastic performance by MAL in a friendly. Skipper Gav Lebens opted to bowl, with uncertainty as to the weather later in the day. The Eastcote pitch was an absolute cracker, hard and true, and offering nothing to bowlers of any style. Yoav Lebens and Tony Wise opened the bowling but soon found that any slight error of line or length was punished.

Phillips stars in Belmont victory

May 13, 2010

An unbeaten 38 from Joel Phillips steered Belmont & Edgware to victory as they beat Haryom in the Middlesex Sunday League Division Three.

Tight spells from opening bowlers Gideon Restan (1-12) and Mike Prager set the tone for BECC to restrict Haryom to 138. Neil Myeroff (1-20) bowled beautifully in tandem with chief destroyer Stuart Davis (4-24). Phillips chipped in with 2-17 at the death.

Simon Durban (26), Warren Averbuch (32), batting with the aid of a runner, laid the platform for Phillips to see the job through.
