Midsomer Norton Cricket Club 200 Club
October 10, 2013•18 min
Individual scores of 100 or more are a relatively uncommon occurrence in club cricket so to reach 200 in a club game is some feat. Midsomer Norton CC now have two current players in this exclusive 200 club and they are brothers Chris and Nigel Tabb.
Chris Tabb notched up his first double-century for Midsomer Norton in the last week of August in a home fixture against Wiltshire side Nationwide House CC. His 153 ball innings of 201 not out included 26 fours and 4 sixes.
In reaching this milestone – his first double century – he matched the performance of brother Nigel Tabb in a 1988 fixture against Blagdon CC, again at Withies Lane. Nigel ended his innings on 205 not out. Nigel was at the wicket with Chris in his recent innings when the brothers shared a partnership of 133 runs for the second wicket.
