A night of tumbling records

City Centre recruitment and a few of our clients had a great evening at the T20 cricket at the Southampton Aegas Bowl last week to watch a night of tumbling records.

As one of the worlds greatest contests – the battle for the Ashes – concluded, England and Australia now compete in the shorter versions of the game.

The show came to the south coast on Thursday 29th August as the Aegas Bowl in Southampton hosted the first T20 match between England  and Australia.

Southampton’s Aegas Bowl has invested heavily over the past few years to try and attract the higher profile games to the ground with its aim to become one the regular grounds used for international 5 day test matches. In recognition of this investment the Aegas Bowl have been awarded their second test next year when they play host to England v India on 27th to 31st July. 

This investment was evident on the evening as the whole spectator experience went smoothly from the park and ride system to getting some dinner and a drink during the match.

Unfortunately the result wasn’t quite what we had wanted with Australia winning by 39 runs. However the match was quite amazing.

Aaron Finch, one of Australia’s openers scored 156 off just 63 balls! This is the highest international T20 score ever. The records did not stop tumbling there however. In scoring his 156, Aaron struck 14 sixes to help post a world record total of 18 number sixes hit in one innings. Australia ultimately posted a score of 248.

England made a fair go of hitting the target but came up 39 short. However in doing so they helped break a record for the total combined aggregate score for the match was the highest in T20 history at 460.

At the end of the evening everyone was transported back using City Centre’s 2 Hyundai i800’s.

A great day was had by all and we look forward to our next event.
