As our first year in partnership with Lashings All-Stars comes to an end it’s time for a debrief of the season. We’ve travelled all over the country taking the Cricket Simulator with us. From Weston-super-Mare at the start of the season, over to Brighton, and all the way up to Boston, to name just few of the great cricket clubs we have been too. But theres always been one thing in common. The Lashings All-stars go on unbeaten.
We hope you have all had an awesome summer. It seems like we all enjoyed ourselves a bit more this year thanks to the Sun finally coming out and keeping the rain at bay every Saturday (nearly). Its been a pleasure meeting you all and we are inspired to carry on increasing cricket participation throughout the country.
THE STATS- Zhuwao sets Lashings Record
A few stats to start us off. The Superstars are currently unbeaten this year. The highest innings score was 334-6 against Downend at the start of June. A fantastic innings for Lashings All-stars, who had a memorable first wicket partnership where Kirk Edwards (141) and Wasim Jaffer (130) batted incredibly enjoying a 274 run stand before Edwards was finally caught. Although, not until he had smashed 12 sixes and 13 fours around the ground. 141 runs was a huge achievement, but Edwards then followed up a couple of weeks later with 151* against Imperial Blue finance, we thought it was the best innings of the season.
But it was not to be, Cephas Zhuwao excited fans at the Town Malling T20 festival, scoring a mighty score of 166 which included whacking 16 sixes and 10 fours. We also had the pleasure of enjoying Monty Panesar’s company as he made his Lashings debut at Bingham Cricket club.
Tino Best Clean Bowled
Some stats of ourselves, we have had over 900 players on the simulator this year at Lashing events. The lashings guys have enjoyed playing on the simulator as well, and at other events, Andrew Strauss, Simon Jones, and Gary Kirsten have joined in the fun taking on the Speed and Swing.
