Matt Renshaw, a probable Test candidate for Australia, has smacked a massive century to sent a reminder to the selectors ahead of the four-match Test series against India.
Meanwhile, the southpaw broke a Queensland Premier Cricket record for Brisbane side Toombul as he amassed 345 from 273 deliveries in the two-day match against Wynnum/Manly. Renshaw’s knock included 38 fours and 12 massive sixes in his entertaining knock. He finally got out in the final over of the day as Toombul posted 550 for four at Oxenham Park.
Matt Renshaw went past former Bulls opener Wade Townsend’s 311 not out during the 2009/10 season for Toombul. It now means Renshaw has scored a total of 611 at an average of 203.7 from four innings for Toombul this season. Moreover, this is the third time the southpaw has reached the three-figure mark this season.
However, Renshaw has struggled to put runs in the Sheffield Shield this season for Queensland. He has managed to score only 158 runs including a half-century with an average under 20 from eight innings.
So far, Renshaw has played 11 Tests for Australia, having scored one century and three 50s at an average of 33.47. He will aim for a spot in the Australia side for the Test series against India. With David Warner out due to ban, Matt Renshaw can be a handy customer at the top of the batting order.
The Test series between India and Australia starts from December 6 at the Adelaide Oval.
