North Otago physiotherapist Duncan Drew became the highest run scorer in North Otago representative cricket in the match against Mid Canterbury in Timaru last weekend.

Drew set the mark in the second innings, passing the previous top run scorer, Bob Wilson.

Drew was dismissed for a duck in North Otago’s first innings and in North Otago’s second innings his unbeaten 18 took him past Wilson’s run aggregate of 2775 by seven runs.

Drew is also a talented wicketkeeper and he once rivalled Brendon McCullum for the Otago gloves.

Duncan has now played 143 innings in his 91 matches for North Otago.

He has been not out on eight occasions and has a career average of 20.61. His highest score has been 102 and he has passed 50 on 10 occasions.

According to North Otago statistician Scott Cameron, Drew has been dismissed for ducks on 23 occasions and so far in his career he has hit 254 fours and 11 sixes.

The remaining North Otago players who make up the top 10 runscorers are Norm McKenzie, Ben Cant, Russell Payne, Ivan Geddes, Mark Wilson, Tony Cartwright, Francoise Mostert and Brian Papps.
