A CRICKET club said it's on the right track to building a "lasting legacy" after a batting record was broken, thanks to its 17-year-old batsman.

Stoke Green Cricket Club, based on the corner of Wexham Road and Stoke Green Road, praised batsman Tegh Singh Banse for his efforts in a Thames Valley Division 8 match against Boyne Hill 4s.

The sixth former, who goes to Windsor Boys School, smashed 200 not out in the 40 over match.

He shared an unbeaten stand of 385 runs with Gully Khan, who finished on 174 not out.

Tegh hit a six off the last ball of the innings to get to the magic double ton.

Sukh Dhillon, chairman of Stoke Green Cricket Club, said: “This innings is an incredible effort by a young player and we are proud to be able to say that we played a part in his cricket development.

“Both Gully and Tegh played impressively to post not just personal record scores but one of the highest if not the highest partnerships in club and league history.”
