Jagot blasts past 3000 first grade runs

As he led first grade with a superb knock of 156 against Fairfield-Liverpool last Saturday, Tom Jagot shot past 3000 career first grade runs. Tom has now accrued 3,091 runs at 37 in first grade, with 2,957 coming at an average of 40.51 since he joined the Bears in 2015/16.

Tom has struck 6 first grade centuries, including an undefeated 125 as he and Adam Crosthwaite shared a club-record fourth wicket partnership of 261 and mowed down Sydney’s total of 380 at Drummoyne last season. Tom followed it up with another 130 as the Bears piled 348 against Parramatta in a one-dayer two rounds later.

Tom’s form has been particularly strong over the past two seasons, with his 1,593 runs at 53.1 leading all comers in first grade over that time period. He was rewarded with selection in a NSW 2nd XI at the end of last season and represented the Sydney Sixers academy team earlier this year.

Tom was selected in the NSW Premier Cricket team of the year last season and was joint runner-up in the coveted O’Reilly Medal for the best player in first grade. He will be pushing for higher honours again this season as he continues to secure wins for the Bears with  his stellar form.
