Budleigh's Big Bully blasts 159* - 15/06/15

Cephas Zhuwao 1CEPHAS ZHUWAO struck a typically explosive century to help Budleigh to yet another victory this weekend.

Nicknamed "Big Bully", Zhuwao lived up to his hard-hitting reputation by slamming 159 not out against Bideford in the Devon Cricket League on Saturday.

His 103-ball innings included 12 fours and a quite remarkable 14 sixes (including 9 in succession, which surely must be some sort of record?) setting up Budleigh's 296 from only 39 overs.

In reply, the former Zimbabwean international bowled an economical 8 over spell for 30, as Bideford fell 63-runs short in the A Division fixture.

Zhuwao's century, was his first for Budleigh in only his fourth match for The Ottermouth club, following scores of 88 (79 balls), 56 (43) and 35 (54). He has also taken two 4-wicket hauls against Tavistock (4-28) and Barton (4-29) respectively.

Big Bully, who also turns out for the Lashings World XI, harbours ambitions to return to the national fold and with performances like these, he's clearly treading the right path.
