Runs galore for Jean du Plessis

The scintillating batting form of the captain of the Six Gun Grill Garden Route Badgers, Jean du Plessis, continued the past weekend. 

Du Plessis who was representing the Boland as a loan player in the Cricket SA Division 1 four-day competition against the Lions at the Wanderers scored 120 (194 balls; 3×6; 11×4) in the second innings of the Boland and in the process enable Boland to secure a draw.  In the first innings he was dismissed for only 15.

His century of the weekend was his 5th first class century of the season and included a century for the SA ‘A’ team against India in Potchefstroom during December last year.  He also scored a double century (201) for the Garden Route Badgers against the Eastern Cape Iianyathi in a four-day match in Oudtshoorn.

In List A (One Day) cricket he scored two centuries for the Badgers the past season.
