Ren­shaw’s open­ing ton

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - SPORT -

AUS­TRALIA bats­man Matt Ren­shaw marked his de­but in English first-class cricket’s County Cham­pi­onship with a re­mark­able hun­dred for Som­er­set against Worces­ter­shire at Taun­ton on Fri­day.

Ren­shaw is only play­ing for Som­er­set as a re­place­ment for Cameron Ban­croft after his Aus­tralia team­mate was banned for nine months by Cricket Aus­tralia for ball tam­per­ing dur­ing the third Test against South Africa in Cape Town.

Ren­shaw’s un­beaten 101 rep­re­sented ex­actly 50 per­cent of Som­er­set’s 202 all out in this First Di­vi­sion clash.

Ren­shaw bat­ted for nearly four hours, fac­ing 139 balls in­clud­ing 13 fours and a six.
