Luke Georgeson scores century for Governor General’s XI

Easts 19 year old Luke Georgeson scored 125 in the inaugural game against the New Zealand Maori Schoolboys at Karori park, Wellington.

Luke reached his half-century first off 59 balls, littering Karori Park with quality cricket shots showing why he’s highly rated by Cricket Wellington and national age group selectors.

He then raced to his century, reaching the milestone in 148 minutes off 114 balls, finding the boundary 14 times. He eventually went out for 125 after featuring in two good century partnerships that setup the winning of the game for the Governor General’s XI.

Well done Luke !!!!!!

2. Best 5th wicket partnership of 206 runs
for Charlie Thurston 242* and Jimad Khan 77.

Previous record was 143 scored in 2010 with Scott Golder 103 and David Holt 52*. The 4th wicket partnership for Charlie Thurston 242* & Jamie Gibson 108 in the same game was 191.

3. Highest innings in a Two Day game 488.
previous best was 449 against Karori in 2015. It was also our 2nd highest innings in all forms of the game with the current record of 550 set last year against Johnsonville in the Pearce Cup final.

Congratulations Charlie, Jimad and Jamie - absolutely brilliant !!!!!
