Finchley v London Maccabi Vale Cricket Club 1st XI on Sun 18 Jul 2010 at 13.30
London Maccabi Vale Cricket Club Won by 62 runs

Match report London Maccabi Vale 1st marched 12 points clear at the top of the Middlesex Sunday League Division Two table after beating Finchley by 62 runs at Arden Field.

A third wicket partnership of 161, lasting 107 minutes and 24 overs, between opener Danny Caro and captain Adam Brand enabled LMV to post 258-5 from their 40 overs.

Things did not start well however as Alex Haffner was caught behind attempting to pull while Daniel Becker was also caught behind chasing a wide delivery from Finchley’s most threatening bowler .

But Caro and Brand gradually took the game away from Finchley. With conditions perfect for batting, the powerful Brand found the boundary with great regularity. His knock of 104 from 72 deliveries included 15 fours and one almighty six.

Rotating the strike well, Brand and Caro maintained a run rate of close to seven an over. Caro’s 79-ball score of 71 included 11 boundaries.

The captain and vice-captain departed in quick succession allowing Seb Schusman, a star of last year’s GB Junior Maccabiah team, to show his quality with a cameo of 36 not out from 31 balls with fluent strokes all round the wicket .

Finchley’s reply did not get off to the best start as Saul Weitzman and Daniel Cohen got amongst them, with the first three batsmen clean bowled.

Weitzman (7.3-0-29-2) and a terrific spell from Cohen (7-2-20-5) ripped the heart out of the Finchley innings as they staged to 44-6, although the game was not over as the hosts were given a mid-order reprieve when Haffner and Cohen, twice at slip, put down catches.

This allowed Finchley’s last four wickets to produce 152 runs.

But some good bowling from Schusman ensured that LMV would maintain their unbeaten record with a sixth league victory.
