Balderson reflects on 'proud moment'

Balderson reflects on 'proud moment'

The former England under-19 captain has beaten his previous best twice in this game, making a first half-century on Day Three against Derbyshire

George Balderson has eyes on finishing the Bob Willis Trophy campaign with a victory after reaching a personal milestone in the final over of the day against Derbyshire at Liverpool CC.

He reached his maiden First-Class half-century and finished the day with a towering six, one of three in his knock.

"It was nice to get to the end of the day and see that the team is in a good position where we can hopefully go and win the game. To get 50 as well on a personal note it's a proud moment," he said.

"I'm really happy to show some improvement at this level because I haven't really had the success with the bat yet that I was hoping for. 

"I'm not completely sure what the plan is yet with a declaration and we'll have to let the skipper decide that but we wanted to be in a position where we had the runs on the board and enough overs to bowl Derbyshire out which was the thinking behind the acceleration towards the end of the day.

"50 isn't a massive milestone but it's nice to get the first one ticked off and move on with my career.

"I know if I keep performing as well as I can and keep trusting the process, in the future those hundreds will come along with the five wicket hauls.

"I feel a bit more at ease at this level and the pitch this week has suited my game as it is pretty slow but coming out today was about enjoying myself and reading the situation which allowed me to play my shots and show off my skills."
