I Cried When South African Aiden Markram Got Run-Out On 97 Missing His ‘Hundred On Debut’!
90s on Debut — from cricinfo.com.
Gordon Greenidge, to his credit scored 103 in the SECOND innings,
as such still qualifying for ‘Hundred on Debut’.
What a crying shame and it did make me cry.
I had only seen Aiden Markram once and I had already (i.e., last night) sung his praises — in print.
‘Hundred on Debut’ is quite a landmark and you only get TWO chances, ever, to do it — your 1st innings and the 2nd (if you get one).
As you can see MY MAN Gordon did succeed in the second innings — and in the process scored exactly 200 runs in the match.
There is a chance that Aiden Markram, even IF he gets a 2nd innings, might not have enough time to compile a hundred. It will take quite a bit of work on the part of Bangladesh even to get South Africa to bat again!
I still can’t make up my mind as to who was at fault. Markram was a long way up the pitch.
Such a shame. He took it well. Very mature. I am impressed. This boy is going to go far.
That Dean Elgar THEN managed to get out on 199 is pretty ironic. Do not feel too bad for him. 199 is, by any means, quite an INNINGS.
