A stunning century from Matthew Renshaw inspired MCC Young Cricketers to a three-wicket win over a strong MCC side in their annual fixture at Lord's.
Australian Renshaw smashed 138 from just 98 balls - including six sixes and 18 fours - to set up the win, as the YCs chased down a tricky Duckworth/Lewis method adjusted target of 272 with 14 balls to spare.
Shane Getkate (40 not out) and Dan Hampton (16 not out) put on 28 to see their side home after Hampton's dismissal, which had briefly offered MCC hope.
Kevin Dean, the former Derbyshire seamer, was the standout bowler for MCC with 3/28, but Chris Swallow took some particular punishment from Renshaw, going for 57 off his five overs.
Earlier Hampton impressed with the ball, taking 3/51 in his eight overs. Ex-Notts batsman Darren Bicknell rolled back the years with 76, while number five Steven Naylor made 71 not out.
Ex-England wicket-keeper Paul Nixon was one of Hampton's victims, making 18.
