Travis Norris is a run-scoring machine who recently concluded a quite spectacular maiden club stint in 2021, and is seeking a club in Durham next summer.

The UK Ancestry Visa holding South African plundered runs for fun playing for Stanmore, finishing comfortably top of the Middlesex County League run charts.

However, it was his penchant for big runs that really caught the eye. Throughout the summer, the left-handed opener scored 9 centuries for both club, and county (alongside his Stanmore commitments he also featured for the Middlesex County League XI).

In all forms of club cricket, he scored 1,363 runs at 61.95 with 8 centuries, including an MCCL record-equalling 6 hundreds amongst 940 runs at 94.

During the summer, Norris was a consistent performer, but he enjoyed one incredible purple patch, striking 4 centuries in 5 innings, including 3 in succession (107* v Osterley, 104 v Crouch End, and 169 v Highgate).

Norris ended the league season with 1,117 runs at 69.81 (7 hundreds), 244 runs ahead of the second-highest league run-scorer.

Of note, he also scored his runs with a strike rate nudging a run-a-ball (93.84) and picked up 19 wickets at 28.74 with his off-spin to boot.

Courtesy of his club exploits, Norris gained selection for the Middlesex County League side who played against a Middlesex side including the likes of Stoneman, Robson, Simpson, Harris, and Helm toward the end of August. Unsurprisingly, he starred hitting scores of 31 and 85 not out - the latter helping guide his side to a 5-wicket victory.

For those in the know, Norris’ UK success has come as no surprise. He has churned runs aplenty throughout his schoolboy career.

He represented Bishops Diocesan College between 2016 and 2020, earning 96 first-team caps. He topped the run-charts every year and was the “batter of the year” in each of his final three seasons.

Norris was a key performer for Western Province at age-group level, representing WP at Under-13, 17, and 19 levels. At Premier club level, he made his 1st XI debut for Rondebosch as a 15-year-old (Grade 9) and has been part of the club’s Premier League title.

Prior to his UK stint for Stanmore, he had also enjoyed prior success abroad, with tours to Sri Lanka (2015), Dubai (2016), India (2018), and the UK (2019), with tour averages of 131, and 62 during the latter two trips abroad.

Norris really is quite the prospect who is now studying at Durham University where he hopes to play MCCU cricket next summer. Alongside his University commitments he will play Premier club cricket for Felling in the strong North East Premier League throughout the 2022 season.
