Voting has been completed for the Sydney Uni Cricket Player of the Round following Round 9 of the McDonald's NSW Premier Cricket competition.
The Surjits Player of the Round goes to Ryan Carters for his career high 167 in First Grades victory over Sutherland.
The Nags Head Performance of the Round, goes to Nick Larkin for his 129 also in First Grades victory.
Ryan's flawless 167 came off 229 balls and set the tone for the dominant victory. Ryan and Nick shared a 222 run partnership and really took the game away from Sutherland. It is Ryan's first Surjit Player of the round and his second century this season after his 113 in round 6 against Gordon.
Nick posted his fourth century in First Grade this season, and joined an elite group of Sydney University players to have scored 7000 runs for the club (Greg Mail, Adam Theobald, Ian Moran and Ed Cowan). Only one player in the clubs history has scored more than 4 centuries in a single first grade season (Jim Bogle, 1918-19) and with five rounds to go Nick may challenge this record.
There were a handful of other outstanding performances this round that require a mention;
Ben Joy was exceptionally close to claiming the Nags Performance of the Round with his first five wicket haul in First Grade, claiming 5/53 off his 15 overs.
Lewis McMahon continued his good form taking 4/26 off 9.3 in Third Grade's victory.
Josh Toyer was impressive in his comeback game, scoring 49 and taking 2/23 in Fifth Grade's win.
