Sangha Pummels the Poms

The rise and rise of Randwick Petersham’s Jason Sangha continued when the teenage prodigy made his debut first-class century against the touring England side in a pre-Ashes showdown in Townsville. Playing for the Cricket Australia XI, Sangha scored 133 from 226 deliveries with 13 fours and a six. Facing a Test-strength bowling attack which included Stuart Broad, Chris Woakes and Moeen Ali, Sangha became the second youngest man in history at 18 years and 68 days to post a first-class hundred against England. The only batsmen younger? Sachin Tendulkar. Sangha’s century also made him the youngest Australian to post three figures in a first-class game since Ricky Ponting in 1992-93. Jason has already made two unbeaten centuries for Randy Petes this year. An incredible start to his season.
