Kenthurst Cricket Club brothers hit twin tons

EVERY cricketer remembers his first 100 — and twin brothers Paul and Aaron Muston will never forget theirs, thanks to a 214-run D Grade partnership.

The Kenthurst Upper Hills openers, 16, dominated the Normanhurst-Warrawee attack and smashed the team's eight bowlers for 30 boundaries on their way to twin hundreds.

Their partnership was eventually broken late on the first day when Aaron accidentally ran his brother out for 119.

Aaron batted on for another 15 overs before being dismissed for a season-high team knock of 135.

"We've only opened a few times together and neither of us have ever scored 100 before," Aaron said.

"It was very exciting to both get our hundreds on the same day and celebrate with each other out in the middle."

The mammoth partnership fell just 10 runs short of Kenthurst's record opening stand and helped the team set the club's third highest total of 5-390.

Paul said he and his brother batted well but rode their luck at times.

"I was dropped by a cover fieldsman on 34 and I think it frustrated the Normanhurst bowlers," Paul said.

"Aaron was then dropped on 60 and 105 which must have really annoyed them."

Kenthurst backed up their solid batting display to dismiss Normanhurst for 196 and claim first innings points.

Gary Staci starred with the ball, snaring 4-27, while Chaminda Lewis kept the pressure on at the other end grabbing 3-27 from 12 overs.
