Three Fifties again in 2013 for TW IV v R A C S

Following the feats of TW I and TW II, TW IV made it a trio of the KL XIs on 13 July v BWCoL and have now done it again in the home match v R A C S at the Upper Ground. BJ Allatt (54) and Jorge Ehren (83) posted 108 for the opening partnership, with Kelvin Hill notching 53* to round off the achievement.

In addition, the IIs almost saw a fourth new record opening stand in 2013 when Jamie Baldwin (112) and Will Stickler (127) put on 228 against Tenterden II before a wicket fell : the 242 set by Mark Alexander and James Meddings on 13 July thus escaped eclipse on this occasion, whilst nonetheless a second double-hundred start in one season is quite special, and very likely without precedent.
