Gideon’s calling the shots

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT -

CRICKET MAL boosted their MSCL ti­tle hopes with a big win over Lon­don Mac­cabi Vale 2nds on a day when sev­eral club records fell.

MAL smashed 386, with Gideon Caller blast­ing 12 bound­aries in his 82-ball 102. The MAL top-order made hay, with War­ren Aver­buch blast­ing 76 off 66 balls, Kevin Lot­zoff 93 from 35 balls and Yoav Lebens club­bing 57 from 23 balls. MAL added 177 runs from their last 10 overs.

LMV were never in con­tention as MAL cruised to vic­tory by more than 250 runs.

An ex­cel­lent spell of spin bowl­ing from Grant Rein­gold steered Lon­don Mac­cabi Vale 1st XI to the top of the Chess Val­ley League ta­ble with a seven-wicket suc­cess over Lo­hana in Divi­sion Five.

LMV re­stricted Lo­hana to 109, with Rein­gold (3-18) mes­mer­ing the vis­i­tors with his flight and guile. There were also wick­ets for Jonathan Gould, An­drew Green­wall Cohen, Joseph Green­wall Cohen and Adam Brand, while LMV cap­tain Neil Lederman’s miserly four-over spell went for five runs.

Danny Caro (30) and Joseph Green­wall-Cohen (33) pro­duced a match­win­ning part­ner­ship to ease LMV home and it was left to Adam Brand and Adam Spooner to knock off the win­ning runs as LMV coasted home with 14 overs to spare. A su­perb all-round per­for­mance in­spired South Manch­ester to a five-wicket suc­cess in the GMACL against Foresters. Steven All­weis ( 3-24 ) ex­celled with the ball, while An­drew Wil­liams and Dan Paul helped re­strict Foresters to 124.

Akiva Lieber­man, Shaia Rabi­novitz, Jody Marks, re­turn­ing to the side for the first time in four years, and Josh Woolf­stein helped knock off the runs.
