Tom Elliott reaches 101 in the Oxford-Cambridge match at Cambridge

Tom Elliott, TWCC’s hero of the 2012 Premier Division match vs Beckenham CC, added to his laurels with a second-innings maiden First-Class century in the famed meeting of the two historical University XIs held in 2013 at Cambridge. This outstanding achievement will no doubt be welcomed here at his KL Club notwithstanding that his innings came during a follow-on that led on to defeat. Sam Agarwal, who dismissed Elliott after his 131-ball century, became the first player to hit a triple-hundred in this series (313*), hoisting the Oxford total to 550-7. Elliott posted 162 for the fourth partnership with Cambridge opener Philip Hughes (92) but this was not enough to avert the final outcome.
