London Maccabi Vale Cricket Club 1st XI v Harrow on Sun 01 Jul 2018 at 1pm (TBC)
London Maccabi Vale Cricket Club Won by 1 wicket

Match report London Maccabi Vale recorded a dramatic last-ball victory to defeat Harrow Town in a pulsating fixture at Rowley Lane.

A scampered single off the final delivery of the innings secured a one-wicket win for Vale, their second in three league matches this season, but that barely scrapes the surface of a feisty, nail-biting encounter.

A match of several twists and turns – and plenty of incident – saw Harrow get off to a flying start, before captain Neil Lederman (3-37) led the Vale fightback with the ball.

A superb second half to the innings from LMV’s bowlers restricted the visitors to a below-par score, with Adam Brand, Benjamin Lederman, Simeon Cohen and Steven Allweis all chipping in with vital wickets, supported by excellent catching.

Set a target of 211 to win, Vale looked on course with Adam Brand (62), Ben Kohler (34) and Alex Haffner (31) all in fine touch – but a highly contentious decision by the opposition’s umpire to give Brand out LBW reignited the visitors’ hopes.

After further controversy with the umpire, bowlers’ actions and issues with the scoring, it came down to six required off the final over to win and then five needed off three balls, with two wickets in hand.

Under intense pressure, an audacious ramp shot by Steven Allweis sailed away for four runs – but he was dismissed off the penultimate ball with the scores level.

In hobbled Jonny Gould at number eleven. Normally a top-order batsman, Gould had suffered an injury in the field and required the assistance of a runner. However, given the spirit in which the game had been played, it was no surprise that Harrow Town refused that request. For Vale, it made victory all the sweeter.

Gould crashed the ball straight to one of Harrow Town’s close fielders, but a fumble by him and then another by the wicketkeeper allowed Rayno Greenwall-Cohen to scamper home just in time to seal a memorable win for Vale.
