National cricket skipper scores record century

Monday September 02, 2013 Written by Published in Cricket

Cook Islands national women’s captain June George set a record 131 for her club side Turangi in the first match of the Edgewater Resort and Spa women’s cricket season on Saturday.

George amassed the significant total at number three, batting her way through the innings until the last few overs when she was out ‘played on’.

The national captain says that Cook Islands Cricket’s new ‘High Performance Programme’ had helped her pre-season development significantly.

“The HP programme is a lot stricter and more demanding than ever before. That and having learnt so much against the New Zealand Croatian team has really helped me start the season strongly.”

George’s record score pushed Turangi to a massive total of 193 for seven wickets, however it wasn’t enough to fend off their opponents Muri CC, who achieved the total without losing a wicket.

Other sides to pick up four points include Arorangi and the young Matavera women’s side who started the season well with a convincing win over Avana. The Computer Man men’s teams will have to wait until next week to run out on the park after rain caused a washout to the first of the season’s The Computer Man matches.
