Triple ton joy for forgotten Aussie

1st December 2018, 15:04 by Neil Foster

Matt Renshaw smashed a record 345 in grade cricket on Saturday in response to being left out of the Australia Test team.

The 22-year-old, who has 11 Test caps for the Baggy Greens, was omitted from the squad to face India in Adelaide, with the opening salvo due to begin on Thursday.

The Middlesbrough-born batsmen did not feature in October's two-Test series against Pakistan in the UAE due to a concussion injury, but had hoped for a recall to face the sub-continental giants Down Under.

It seemed the Queensland ace had a point to prove as he smashed 38 fours and 12 sixes in a 273-ball innings for Brisbane side Toombul in a two-day game against Wynnum/Manly.

He has now scored 611 runs in four innings for Toombul this season but has struggled for his state side, scoring only 158 runs at an average of 19.75.

It remains to be seen if the talented youngster does make an appearance for the Aussies in the upcoming matches, with four Tests scheduled against Virat Kohli’s side.
