CMCA Crest no shadow

Runs galore in Round Four

History was created at Burnside Oval in this round with Marist Harewood’s Jack Clark scoring a century in each innings of a Christchurch Premier club match. Only Sam Guillen, Brian Hastings, Max Bremner and Shanan Stewart have achieved this feat but what made this unique is that Jack carried his bat through both innings to score 114 not out and 110 not out. Jack, a left hand opener, is playing in Christchurch as a Durham exchange scholar and thoroughly deserves the Player of the Match Espresso Carwash award.

More runs came Greg Dawson’s way when St Albans played East Christchurch Shirley at Burwood. Greg produced a splendid innings at the end of Day 1 when he raced to his century in 155 balls with 16 boundaries and 1 six. Beautifully-timed cover drives and deft back cuts laced this left hander’s innings which set up St Albans in a strong position at the end of play. For good measure he led his team to an outright with another innings of substance with 65 not out. An Espresso Carwash voucher is coming Greg’s way.

Despite being on the losing side, Conrad Klintworth’s devastating spell of 6 for 27 off 9 overs was worthy of the Espresso Player of the Match when Riccarton hosted Sydenham at Upper Riccarton Domain. In the space of just over two overs he removed five of the Sydenham players who had no answer to the accurate inswing and seam of the right arm medium pacer. On a green but fair surface he removed the off stump of Humphries, and then proceeded to bowl a superb ball to hit the top of off stump to remove the experienced Robinson before bowling the hapless Day, Allen and Gardner.

In-form opening batsman for Old Boys Collegians, Abhi Shrikhande continued his excellent form with a fine batting double including his maiden Premier club century of 101 against LPW on an excellent Elmwood batting pitch. In a 130-ball innings which was punctuated by fluent driving on both sides of the wicket, Abhi stroked 16 boundaries on the lightning-fast outfield. His second innings effort of 47 not out allowed his skipper to set an outright target for the Park boys. It also allowed Abhi to claim his second Espresso Carwash award of the season.
