BAL MAN­GAT and teenage sen­sa­tion Qaiss Raja com­bined to break Uxbridge bat­ting records for club’s fourth-string in the Mid­dle­sex League Di­vi­sion Three this week.

Raja, 14, be­came the youngest cen­tu­rion in adults cricket, scoring an im­pres­sive 102 off 111 balls, beat­ing his PB of 68.

His for­mer coach, dou­ble cen­tu­rion Man­gat (pic­tured), scored the high­est in­di­vid­ual score of 208 off 173 balls, beat­ing his PB of 193 set back in 2012.

They gained the high­est third wicket part­ner­ship of 331 runs off 272 balls, in their game against Shep­herds Bush fourths, re­sult­ing in a win­ning draw.

Raja lost an early wicket in the third over at num­ber three and ini­tially looked to re­store the in­nings un­til the sec­ond wicket fol­lowed that of cap­tain Muzten­zur Khan.

Uxbridge were two down by the sixth over when Raja was joined by Man­gat at num­ber four, who also helped him achieve his record­break­ing Adult 50 last year aged 13. SPORT ROUND-UP
