JORDAN KHAN smashed 208 not out as Rockhampton got their Lord's dream off to a flyer in the second round of the National Village Cup against plucky Oldbury-on-Severn.

In front of a bumper crowd, Rockhampton captain Jamie Wakefield won the toss and had no hesitation in batting first on a used, but hard pitch and a fast outfield.

From that point onwards, it was one-way traffic as some outrageous hitting from Khan took the game away from Oldbury.

Opening the batting, Khan hit the ball to all parts, notching up 212 for the first wicket together with Rowan Cartlidge.

When Cartlidge departed for 71, Khan continued his assault, finishing unbeaten on 208 from just 133 balls - Rockhampton closing their 40 overs on 347 for 2 and setting Oldbury an almost impossible task.

In reply, Oldbury started steadily with both openers scoring freely but they couldn't keep up with the rate. Rockhampton's bowlers toiled without reward for long periods but were able to exercise control, limiting Oldbury to around five runs an over throughout. Forty eight runs apiece from openers Gray and Garrett and 55 from number three Nichols showed how good the pitch was for batting, but Oldbury ended their 40 overs on 227 for five - a staggering 120 runs behind Rockhampton.

Rockhampton progress to the third round, to be played on May 26, at home to league rivals Corse & Staunton CC.

A special thanks to the Williams family who graciously catered for the players and all paying spectators on a superb day for the club.
