Season Review

Another season passes and once again Gray-Nicolls can boast an impressive summer. A magnificent 81 centuries this summer in all domestic cricket were scored with a Gray-Nicolls bat, a total no other brand can match. England T20 star Luke Wright scored six alone. Varun Chopra, Ned Eckersley, Michael Klinger and James Taylor all passed three figures five times. In Division One, England Lions opening batsman Sam Robson lead the way with 1180 runs. Chris Nash, Chopra and Nick Compton all passed 1000 runs. 18 year old Dominic Sibley posted our highest score of 242, setting the record for the youngest player to make a double century in County Championship history. Durham's Phil Mustard was the leading Wicket Keeper with 65 dismissals.
