Robin’s day

Congratulations to Wanstead cricketer Robin Das who made his first class debut on Friday playing for Essex against Ireland – and top-scored with 132.

Wansteadium last mentioned Robin when he was brought on as a substitute for England during the Test match against New Zealand at Lord’s last summer. Since then he has played in the Bangladesh Premier League and has returned to become a part of the Essex team.

The only downside for Wanstead CC is that Robin will be in more demand for Essex duty and won’t be able to play for his original team. But hey, massive congratulations to him and wishing him many more centuries to come.
