Smash, Crash & Bang
That's the sound of breaking records.
Adrian Burgiel has smashed Neville Marchesi's 42 year old "1st Grade high score" record with a 265* run onslaught against Bundalaguah. Coming in at the fall of the first wicket in the tenth over when the score was 25, his mammoth innings helped take the score to 402. He accounted for 70% of the 377 runs scored while he was at the crease.
Burgiel becomes the third 1st grade cricketer to score a first grade double century and the first to do so on turf. Neville Marchesi and Laurie Stephenson both made hard wicket double centuries in the 1960's.
The breakdown of Adrian's scoring shots is as follows ...
5 x 6s = 30
20 x 4s = 80
15 x 3s = 45
36 x 2s = 72
38 x 1s = 38
Total 265 not out
