JOON­DALUP Dis­tricts open­ing bats­man Kai Orr set a new un­der-14 club record with his un­beaten 182 against Su­bi­aco Floreat at Iluka on Sun­day.

He an­chored Joon­dalup’s 3-299 with his bet­ter than a run a ball in­nings be­fore the vis­i­tors re­sponded with 5-186 from their 50 overs.

Did he have his eye on a dou­ble cen­tury?

“I was try­ing,” the 13year-old all-rounder told the Week­ender.

His 182 beat his pre­vi­ous top score of 109no in club cricket for Quinns.

He took Joon­dalup’s first wicket in Su­bi­aco Floreat’s run chase be­fore cramp­ing up at the end of the in­nings.

His fa­ther Ja­son and Joon­dalup ju­nior pres­i­dent Craig Ger­rans said the bat­ting was re­ward for all the off-sea­son train­ing.

Ger­rans de­scribed Kai’s knock as fault­less.

“From ball one to the last ball, he just played the per­fect in­nings,” he said.

“One he will re­mem­ber for the rest of his life.

“We’re re­ally proud of him. It was tes­ta­ment to the hard work he put in over win­ter.”

Kai Orr comes off the ground to the con­grat­u­la­tions of his team­mates.
