First ever century in Twenty20 Surrey Indoor Cricket League!! Nomaan Ali goes BIG at Wimbledon Colle
Twenty20 have hosted the Surrey Men's Indoor Cricket League for 4 seasons. Among all the feats of batting, bowling and fielding, one landmark has stood untouched all this time. Can anybody score a century in the 12-over format?
2 or 3 players have scored within 20 runs, but without the combination of form and circumstance (last man stands is almost essential), reaching the 3-figure landmark seemed beyond reach.
Nomaan Ali smashed 17 sixes on the way to his record-shattering score. To put things into perspective....his score alone would be enough to be in the top 5 team totals in this year's Outer London Division!!
The poor King's College side were understandably shell-shocked. Usually a prolific scoring team, they subsided for just 57 on this occasion....a little short of Super Sixers' 196-5. Milan Patel deserves special credit for side-stepping the carnage, his 3 overs for just 16 runs (and 2 wickets) were miraculous in the circumstances!
Worcester Park have made it to 4 consecutive wins, elevating themselves to top of the Surrey central Division. This was the most comfortable of their 4 victories to date.
Restricting Ham & Petersham to 82 all out, they had the luxury of batting at a pace of their choosing. The top 3 picked off runs when they could, and Ham's bowlers strived a little too hard,
