39 for the season

Off spin for the win

DP Hughes raises the bat

Daniel Hughes’ 6th List A hundred has propelled NSW into a home final in the prestigious Marsh One Day Cup. Hughes boasts 1421 runs @ 56.84 with a strike rate of just a tick under 90. The left hand opening batsman from Cowra in Central West NSW has caught the eye of our resident Cricket Librarian Matt Fiction who has penned this haiku poem in his honour.

One o two not out

First ton in First Class cricket

Paris is a boss

Joel Paris may not be French but the Cricket Library Podcast reached the lofty heights of number three on the Apple Cricket Podcast charts in France. Thanks to everyone in France for getting us this far, let’s see if we can take the top spot!

Bancroft scores a ton

After being sent in by Victoria, Cameron Bancroft has lead the way for WA on day one of their Shield Clash bringing up his third Sheffield Shield ton of the summer.

As we have come to expect, resident cricket librarian Matt Fiction has penned a Haiku poem to celebrate his work.
