Sloppy Vale frus­trated by 10-man Vil­lage

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT -

CRICKET Lon­don Mac­cabi Vale’s Chess Val­ley League hopes were dealt a blow as they went down in a thriller against Mill Hill Vil­lage.

Open­ers Danny Caro and Mark Lan­dau put on 50 in good time for the first wicket, but their ef­forts were un­done by some poor shot se­lec­tion amid a flurry of wick­ets.

Adam Solomons and cap­tain Neil Lederman hit 35 apiece as LMV edged past 200 from 45 overs, with Rus­sell Corin and Andrew Green­wall-Co­hen adding some quick­fire runs at the death.

LMV’s bowlers toiled on a dry­ing wicket, with Ben­jamin Lederman and Green­wall Co­hen go­ing for 100 runs be­tween them from their 10-over spells. Neil Lederman (1-31) pro­duced the most eco­nom­i­cal fig­ures against a 10-man Vil­lage team.

An im­proved per­for­mance af­ter the drinks break saw young­ster Alex Co­hen pick up three wick­ets. Ben­jamin Lederman set up a grand­stand fin­ish with two more, but Vil­lage’s last-wicket pair held firm to con­demn LMV to their sec­ond league de­feat.
