Echuca cricketer Mitch McMullan is making a name for himself in the UK after striking a double century (201 not out) on the final ball of 45 overs for the Arrowdawn Gordonians.
During his innings he faced 130 balls, of which he scored 20 fours and one six to reach the double century.
The total smashes the 20-year-old’s previous personal best of 79, which he scored for Echuca South in Goulburn Murray Cricket.
‘‘When you’re having a good day with the bat you just have to make the most of it and hope to push on for the rest of the season,’’ McMullan told the Cricket Exchange Agency.
According to Arrowdawn Gordonian historian, Alan Adie, McMullan who represents the club in the Strathmore and Perthshire Cricket League, was the first Gordonian to ever score a double hundred.
The Arrowdawn Gordonians sit in third place on the ladder.
