WrApz® Eyewear & MDCC Cricket 27th April 2014

105 and a 6 wicket haul!

The season opened with bang at the Grove ground for MDCC with the 1st X1 taking on Wellington in in their opening match for the 2014 Shropshire League Division One campaign.  This was a 100 over match (50 for each side) and MDCC batted first and scored a healthy 223 for 6. 

Aussie Damith Abeyagunawardene made a fantastic opening match century of 105 to give the home team a solid start.

The visitors opened their batting after tea but were soon knocked over for just 79 all out. All rounder Damith taking 6 wickets for 19 runs in what was an outstanding days performance. It is rare for a player to get a century in a 50 over match and is equally rare to get a 6 wicket haul. To do both in the same match is outstanding. The Market Drayton bowling attack looked as dangerous as ever with a superb supporting effort from Jesse Thompstone with 4 wickets for just 17 runs. Harvey Wakefield looked good with the gloves taking two excellent catches.

A great start to the season that sees Market Drayton joint first in the league.

Damith certainly looks like a contender for this weeks Wrapz Eyewear player of the week Trophy to be presented by captain James Coggins.
