The chance to make his debut Grassmere Cricket Association A grade century fell just metres short for Wangoom’s Chris Arthur.
Opening the batting in Wangoom’s second innings against Hawkesdale last Saturday, Arthur was caught at deep mid-wicket for 99.
“After tea I started to hit a few and it snuck up on me how many runs I was on,” Arthur said.
“I had no idea I was on 99, I thought I might have been on about 80.”
Wangoom lost the game and begins its round three game against Purnim today.
“We need to get off the blocks and start winning,” Arthur said.
