Adil Ahmed hits maiden century

U12 Div 1 Blue all-rounder Adil Ahmed hit 122 not out on February 7th in day one of a two day match against Ashfield Gold. Coming in during the 9th over with the scorebook looking wobbly at 3/25, Adil retired at 51 and then returned to the crease to reach his maiden century and be 122no at stumps with his team on 9/230

Team effort credit to Varun Rana who obtained permission to leave his school game early and got to the SHCC game in time for an 9th wicket partnership of 78 with Adil. Credit also to tailenders Lewis Bandas, James Dawson and Sam Kerrison who held up their ends over after over until Varun arrived. Credit also to Finn Dawson, carrying two injuries who returned as 11th man and held up his end, and scored boundaries, while Adil reached his century. An individual and team effort that was wonderful to watch. Adil has consolidated his position as the leading run scorer in the U12s for C&WSCA.

In a lovely piece of symmetry, Glenn Maxwell also scored 122 not out the next day for his maiden century for Australia.
