So the opening partnership today between Chris Rogers and Paul Borrington was the highest in this year's County Championship. Given the fragility of our batting at times this year, there's a degree of irony in there, n'est ce pas?
Full credit to the pair and it must aid Bozza's development to watch a player like Rogers at close quarters.
Meanwhile, the six that Rogers hit in today's mammoth innings was curiously the first that he has scored in the Championship this season. Now there's a real goodie for the statisticians - who was the last batsman to score a thousand Championship runs before hitting his first six? I may be wrong but I can't think that has happened too often in the history of the game.
Anyone any ideas?
