He's got plenty of experience in top-flight cricket and on Saturday, Centrals Red gun Nick Dunlop showcased his skills as he went off for 127 in his side's 82-run dismantling of Cavaliers in the Orange District Cricket Association second-grade title race.
The win sees Red maintain its spot in the top three as they sit in third position narrowly ahead of the side they just defeated.
It was a timely knock for Dunlop as his troops lost a pair of key wickets early and were staring down the barrel of a 2/21 start.
But, when the powerhouse stepped to the crease, those concerns were quickly erased as he began to work his way into what was a masterful knock.
While he didn't clear the rope at all, he produced 16 fours and gave his side a 221-run total after 40 overs of action.
Cavaliers put themselves in a decent spot to hunt down the total but after losing the wicket of Benny Piper at 1/53, the wheels fell off for the batting side as they only mustered 129 runs.
A host of Centrals' bowlers had strong days but George Olsen (3/14) was the most dominant as he cleaned out the bulk of the Cavs' middle order.
In the second of three second grade contests, Kinross made easy work of Centrals Black as they tracked down a total of 84 in 27 overs for a six-wicket win.
Gareth Faul (3/16) was powerful with the ball in-hand as he set the tone for the students in taking the first three scalps.
The loss marked the seventh for Centrals Black as they're anchored to the bottom of the table, while Kinross continues to nip at the heels of the first-placed Orange City.
The aforementioned ladder leaders closed out the round nine card with a seven-wicket win over CYMS.
