120th player to Captain NSW in the Sheffield Shield


Sheffield Shield Debut

First Grade skipper Jason Sangha will captain NSW for the first time today in the absence of Kurtis Patterson, becoming the 120th man to do so. He is the Blues’ third skipper this season after Daniel Hughes also took the reins against Queensland last month when Patterson missed with a broken finger.

It caps off a memorable summer for the 22-year-old right-hander, who went from playing his first Big Bash game in more than two seasons to captain of the Sydney Thunder in the space of 20 days, while he has also established himself as a valuable member of the Blues’ top order. He is no foreigner to captaining the Blues having skippered them in their Marsh Cup clash with QLD at the Gabba earlier in the season.

Congratulations Sang from all your mates at the Randy Petes!!


In the Marsh Cup day nighter at the Gabba saw two Randy Petes (current First Grade skipper Jason Sangha (#105) and former First Grade skipper Usman Khawaja (#32) ) captain opposition sides for the first time in a List A match. In a DLS affected match NSW prevailed by 5 wickets.

On the 17th March 2022 Riley Ayre received a deserved First Class debut for NSW v WA at Bankstown.

Ayre became the 759th player to wear the Baggy Blue when he was presented it by Randy Petes team mate Jason Sangha (748th) before play on Day 3.

Congratulations Riz from all your mates at the Randy Petes!!
