3000 First-Class Runs

Congratulations to Matt Critchley who has passed 3000 first-class runs.

Matt passed the 3000 runs milestone when scoring his sixth half-century in the 2021 LV= Insurance County Championship.

On the final day at Lord’s, Matt occupied the crease for 170 minutes to score 58 runs from 125 balls. His resilience was in vain, as Derbyshire fell to a 112 run defeat to Middlesex.

In this year’s County Championship, Matt has scored 784 runs from 11 matches with a highest score of 109 made against Worcestershire.

Matt was voted the PCA Player of the Month for April. In the same month, Wisden named him in their Team of the Month.
