Sam Hain clocks up second century in only 10 first-class innings
Monday 14 July 2014
Batsman of the Day
Sam Hain, who last month became the youngest player to score a first-class century for Warwickshire - 134 against Northamptonshire - completed his second hundred in only 10 first-class innings as Durham’s bowlers suffered at Chester-le-Street.
The Hong Kong-born, Australian-raised batsman, whose parents are British, finished on 109 not out in a Warwickshire total of 472. John Hastings took five wickets in an innings for the first time for Durham but that was small consolation for his captain, Paul Collingwood, who had asked the visitors to bat first when the match began on Sunday.
Hain, 19 on Wednesday, took Ian Bell’s place in the county record books with his hundred against Northamptonshire, made when he was 18 years and 336 days old. He has played for Australia’s Under-19s but wants to represent England in future.
Bowler of the Day
Sajid Mahmood, who at his peak played in eight Tests and 26 one-day internationals for England, took three wickets in his first appearance for Essex’s first team in any competition since September last year as Hampshire were bowled out for 246 on day two of the Colchester Festival.
The pace bowler turned out for the Southport side Ainsdale in the second tier of the Liverpool Competition last week but was recalled after Reece Topley joined Tymal Mills and David Masters on the injured list. The Essex bowling was shared among all 10 outfield players. Almost threequarters of Hampshire’s runs were scored by Nathan Rimmington and Adam Wheater, who made his first century of the season against his former county.
Craig Kieswetter, who was England’s one-day wicketkeeper until he lost his place to former Somerset team-mate Jos Buttler, is to undergo surgery after suffering a broken nose and a fracture to his right eye socket when he was struck in the face by a bouncer from Northamptonshire’s David Willey on Saturday.
The 26-year-old faces an indefinite spell on the sidelines. In his absence, Somerset’s substitute wicketkeeper, Alex Barrow, held two more catches as Northamptonshire, offered a nominal target of 404 to win, lost half their wickets for 98.
