Luke Maloney – 50 matches in 4th Grade
Luke Hawksworth & Jamie Brown put on 230 for the 3rd wicket in 2nds – a fine effort but they were nowhere near the 2nd Grade partnership record for the 3rd wicket, which is 347 by Daniel Rixon & Jamie set in the 2015-16 season, also against Hawkesbury!
Shane Watson played his last innings for this season as he will be playing in the Bushfire Appeal match at the SCG next Saturday and then leaving for the Pakistan Super League & the Indian Premier League. He scored his second century of the season with 101no, scored off 72 balls with 8 fours & 8 sixes! In the 1st Grade competition, Shane has finished with 349 runs at 87.5 (hard to see him being topped for the batting average award this season!). The top five six-hitters in the 1st Grade competition after last Saturday are Luke Dempsey (Par) with 23 in 11 innings, Ryan Felsch (Syd) 22 in 11 inns, Liam Robertson (SU) 21 in 11 inns, Will Affleck (RP) 18 in 12 inns and Watto with 18 in 5 innings!! Including T20 matches, he has scored 402 runs at 67.0, with 50 fours and 20 sixes.
