Blake bombs Bangor to final-ball victory - 10/08/14

Blake Dean SYDNEY THUNDER all-rounder Blake Dean blasted a huge straight six from the final ball to take his Bangor side to victory.

Needing 17 runs from the final over to chase down 224 set by opposition Brymbo, Dean produced a sequence of 0, 6, 4, 2 and 1 from the first 5 balls, to include a run-out keeping Dean on strike for the final ball.

With 4 required from the final ball, Dean launched a straight drive that not only cleared the boundary rope, but also the home pavilion sparking scenes of jubilation.

It was an important win for Bangor who move from relegation territory and into 7th spot on the North Wales Premier League table with 109 points - 32 and 35 points clear of Brymbo and Mold who prop up the table.

Dean, who took 2-43 (12) in the first innings notched up his fifth and perhaps most important league ton of the season. He scored 138 not out from Bangor's 227 runs with only fellow CricX client and skipper David Winter reaching double figures (30) for the home side.

The Australian star has enjoyed a magnificent season with Bangor, who were promoted from Division One in 2013. His recent innings propelled him to 1,007 runs in the league, averaging an astonishing 111.88. He has scored 41.12% of Bangor's league runs this summer and is surely on course to break the North Wales League run-scoring record (figure TBC).

To compliment his run scoring exploits, Dean also has 21 wickets at 20.8 with his leg-spin.

Unsurprisingly, Dean comfortably tops the North Wales Premier League run charts - 323 runs ahead of second placed (and another CricX client) Johannes van Aswegen who has 684 runs at 52.61 for bottom-placed Mold - a tally that includes the third highest league score (248) across the country this season (following Michael Gould's 275* for R.M.U and CricX star Anthony Sam's 261* for Cannock).
