Seven-for and seventy: March’s Aussie Meyer celebrates dream competitive debut

AUSSIE star Ryan Meyer shows his delight during a dream competitive debut for March Town Cricket Club on Sunday.

The 21-year-old left-arm spinner hit a classy 70 before sealing a match-winning performance with seven wickets.

“I certainly haven’t had a better debut than that,” he said.

“I thought I batted and bowled pretty well. It’s taken me a little bit of time to get used to these English wickets but I’m slowly getting there.

“To be honest, I’m a bit disappointed I didn’t get 100.”

Meyer was supported by Shardul Brahmbhatt (42) as March posted 181-8 in the Rutland League Division One clash with Uppingham at The Avenue.

The former Australia Under-19s star then took 7-38 to spin the visitors out for 101.
