LMV 2nds come close

By Danny Caro, July 28, 2008

LMV 2nd suffered their second one-wicket defeat of the Middlesex Sunday League Division Two campaign when they were edged out by Southall.

They almost turned what looked like being a thrashing into an unlikely win at Rowley Lane. From the depths of 5-3 and 97-6, they made a respectable 167.

LMV won the toss and batted on a used pitch, no excuses could be made though as the top order collapsed leaving David Freedman and Simon Sattin to try and rebuild the innings. They managed to take the score to 97-5 before Freedy was tired out for a well swatted 31.

Gavriel Lebens’ team got off to a cautious start, with the Nomads openers extracting extravagant movement off the pitch.
