Naturally it's very disappointing when you fall just short of a century and it's even more disappointing when you're run out in the 90s - as were Wayne Read (1996), Bradlee Sharpe (2004) and Lee Webber (2010). 

And spare a thought for
David Webb (1981), Martin Guilbert (2007), Joe Joyce (2013), Charlie Lewis (2013) and Danny Joyce (2018) - the unfortunate Belhus batsmen who have been dismissed on 99.
                        
 
                                               
  Up until 16th May 1998, Jim Banner hadn't scored a century in senior cricket.  But against Goresbrook CC (in which he was our captain for the day), and facing the last ball before tea with his score sitting on 97, he nonchalantly stroked the ball for a boundary 4 to record his maiden ton.  Class.

Test players are clearly not exempt from nerves.  Michael Atherton was twice dismissed on 99, Richie Richardson and Mark Waugh both fell one short.  And 99 was the highest test score made by Shane WarneGreg Blewett has the distinction of scoring 99 twice in a calendar year, and in 1960, M. L. Jaisimha, the Indian opener, was run out on 99 having batted for 500 minutes!  In 1994, the New Zealand captain, Stephen Fleming, scored 92 on his Test debut and, just one week later, scored 90 on his ODI debut - a sudden lapse in concentration or a bout of nerves?

Unfortunately, not every weekend club cricketer gets the opportunity to score a century - particularly those players who bat lower down the order at, say, No. 6 or below.  It means a lot to any cricketer to score a century during his playing career but, in a bizarre kind of way, is it not more memorable (and a life-long talking point) to score 99 but not make a century?  Or perhaps that only applies to those who have actually scored a century!  

It is interesting to note that just one score in the 90s was made by Belhus batsmen during the 1960s (Don Pegler in 1961) and only five were scored throughout the entire 1970s.  John Lewis Jnr made three scores in the 90s in the space of seven weeks in 1984, and Chris Dreher, poor chap, twice scored 98 in the space of four weeks in 1987. 

The list below shows those players who have succumbed to nerves whilst in the 90s (or as some would claim, who were beaten by an unplayable delivery or who fell to a great catch).  We look forward to welcoming more members to The Belhus CC 90s Club: membership is free of charge.
