Cricket update 15 Sep

Well done to our very own Keaton Jenning, who has scored his 7th century of the Specsavers County Championship. Keaton is top of the list with over 1500 runs for the season.
There are rumours of him being in contention to replace Alex Hales for England’s tour to Bangladesh.
Keep going Keats. Pirates backs you all the way.
