In another great day for the Nuna CC First XI, Trent Batchelor, in just his 3rd game for the club, scored an amazing 206, the equal 3rd highest score in club history in the team’s score of 8/393 vs Box Hill North Superkings.
For the record:
Highest Individual Scores
Trevor Hutchins, 238 n.o. in winning Shield 1st Grand Final in 1975/76
Darren Garrett, 208 in C1 in 2010/11
Trent Batchelor, 206 in B grade in 2013/14
Danny Pomeroy, 206 on Shield Grade in 1967/68
George Dolan 203 in A1 in 1973/74
Trent and Nathan Larkins (99) put on 240 odd for the second wicket which may also be a club record.
The Nunaboys 20/20 campaign started off with a win vs Kew at Nuna last night.
NUNAWADING CC 6/149 (20 overs)
Darcy O’Connor 46*
Jarrod Rutley 35
KEW CC 2/145 (20 overs)
Nikku Virk Singh 1/14 (3)
Was a great score first up – absolute quality by Darce and Ruts with the bat, well supported by Daniel Augelli (16), Marc Lamont (12) and Zac Dunlop (8*) who were critical to their partnerships with their intensity and the pressure they applied with the bat. Running between wickets was a particular highlight of our performance overall.
This was followed up by some great work by the bowlers; especially Darce (0/22 off 4), Monty (0/18 off 4), Buddy Mendis (0/26 off 4) and Nikku who kept the scoring pressure on the opposition the majority of the time. S upport also come from Will Dalton and Thushitha Dhanushka with the ball and in particular Zac, Darce, Ash Voellner, Dan and Willy in the field.
All in all a great result to get the points against a strong opposition, but we all know we can still improve and really make ourselves the team to beat in this comp!
Next game is next Tuesday night at Nuna. Would be great to see some supporters !
Bar will be open and BBQ firing.
