Voting has been completed for the Sydney Uni Cricket Player of the Round following Round 5 of the McDonald's NSW Premier Cricket competition.
The Surjits Player of the Round goes to Devlin Malone for his second five wicket haul in first grade this year, helping defeat a previously unbeaten Gordon side.
The Nags Head Performance of the Round is shared by third grade destroyers Hayden Kerr (129*) and Charles Litchfield (109*).
Devlin took the ball half an hour before lunch on day two, by lunch he had all but secured the win for the students, tearing through the Gordon batting line up. Not relying on any of his team mates, with three of his wickets disturbing the woodwork and then grabbing two caught and bowled to finish with figures of 5/78 off 25 overs
Hayden and Charles shared a 235 run partnership off just 205 balls on day one so it is only fair they share the Nags Head Performance of the Round together. It was Hayden's second century for the club after his match-winning 100 in the fourth grade grand final last year. Hayden has started the year very well, building on his scintillating 64 against Hawkesbury in round 4. Charles scored an impressive hundred in the annual trial game against UNSW, but has been unable to capitalise on a handful of starts leading into round 6. The pair's 235 run partnership was just 12 runs short of the record for the highest third grade partnership.
Devlin receives the Surjits Indian voucher for two people, whilst Hayden and Charles claim a $20 voucher at the Nags Head Hotel each.
In a very strong round for the club, there were a couple of honourable mentions:
Jake Day scored his debut 100 for the club in fifth grade, well and truly improving his previous highest score of 33.
Aiden Peek also grabbed his first five wicket haul for the club, claiming 5/47 in Gordon's second innings.
