Cath Dalton becomes the first woman cricketer to hit a century in the Two Counties Championship.

Cath Dalton, SM and Cricket Deal Direct Ambassador, who was representing Halstead Cricket Club reached the landmark score last Saturday. That in itself understates what was achieved, when she became the first woman cricketer to score a century in the 44 years of the league’s existence.

Sky Sports News HQ interviewed Cath on Sunday just showing what a high profile knock it was and the magnitude of what she has achieved. “I didn’t realise no other woman had done it, which was probably quite lucky, but thanks to my SM Player’s Pride bat I powered through.”

“I would like to thank SM and CDD for all the support that they have given me” she added, “this is my 4thyear playing for Halstead’s first team and definitely my greatest achievement. My thanks must also go to my coaches, including Ian Pont. I really hope that this inspires more girls to get out there and play men’s cricket.”

Cricket Deal Direct have recently launched their women’s cricket equipment range, the Heather Knight Cricket Collection, of which the top performance bat is the HK Exclusive. This cricket bat has been designed to be super light to pick up and is beautifully balanced (ergonomically designed) to reduce the overall weight suiting female cricketers, yet deliver maximum power while increasing the quality of the rebound. The bats include vibration reducing technology in the bats handle that increases the size of the bats Sweet Spot!

Ian Anderson, MD of Cricket Deal Direct, said “we are absolutely thrilled by Cath’s performance, especially as everyone seems to class her as bowler, I think they may have to rethink this particular tag. Let’s hope it is the first of many. I am looking forward to Cath taking one of our new bats from the Heather Knight range and seeing what she can do with that.”
