Gareth’s Pair of 150s – Unique

Gareth Berg completed a unique double in the Evening Standard Challenge Trophy match at home to BWIA Cavaliers – two innings of 150+ in a weekend. He added 153 not out to his 159 at Falkland on Saturday, 28 June, 2008.

It is believed two centuries have not previously been scored in competitive games over a weekend by a Radlett player – but this was two 150s! This may well be unique in English club cricket.

Having been set a very challenging target of 278 in 50 overs by a strong and entertaining opposition, it was going to require something special to take Radlett into the last 16 of the competition. Berg did not disappoint. And in the words of David Holden, Chair of Cricket at Radlett, “I have to say that yesterday’s knock by Gareth against BWIA was one of the very best I have ever seen at Radlett. Chanceless, professional, talented and timed to perfection are all fitting tributes – as would be “massively entertaining”. Well done Bergy- an absolute pleasure to watch!”
