Nick Larkin’s magnificent 175 not out for New South Wales against Queensland was his second and highest first-class century. It was also the highest first-class innings ever played for NSW at Manuka Oval. It’s now the second-highest first-class innings played at Manuka, after Stuart Law’s double-hundred for Queensland; Ed Cowan’s 145 not out for Tasmania in 2011-12 drops to third on the list.

He fell three runs short of scoring only the second double-hundred for the club in Fourths (and 18 short of Pradeep Pathirana’s record 215 in Fourths which was made, outrageously, in a 50-over game against Parramatta in 2006-07).
