A touch of Frost inspires record score

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

HAYES Academy’s teenage crick­et­ing prodigy Josh Frost helped send more records tum­bling af­ter his team-mates set a record score.

The 13-year-old (pic­tured) starred along­side Michael Green to pro­pel Hayes to a high­est team score of 389 against Bel­mont & Edg­ware, beat­ing the pre­vi­ous best of 388.

With Green knock­ing off the ma­jor­ity of the runs, it was Frost who scored the crit­i­cal runs at the end. Frost was the right man at the right time as he helped Hayes claim the fi­nal 69 runs re­quired from the last 10 overs. The Uxbridge High teen had only re­cently claimed all 10 wick­ets in a sin­gle in­nings – the first time in more than 200 years at Hayes CC.

Green had also re­cently set his own record for the high­est in­di­vid­ual score when he achieved 223 not out, and he once again lived up to the hype as he smashed 171 from just 63 balls to keep the record to­tal well within sight.

Green took 6-48 for the first team on Satur­day, but they re­main bot­tom of Thames Val­ley League Di­vi­sion 2b af­ter los­ing to War­grave by seven runs. Ruis­lip are sec­ond in Di­vi­sion 4a af­ter ham­mer­ing Wind­sor sec­onds by 132 runs, but Hilling­don Manor lost by 76 runs to NPL Teddington.
