County batter-keeper Cullen amongst the runs for Herefordshire

Henry Cullen scored his maiden century for Herefordshire in their National Counties Western Division Two match with Wiltshire at Corsham today (Tuesday).

The Worcestershire wicket-keeper-batter celebrated his first appearance of the season for Herefordshire by making an unbeaten 71 on day two.

He then went onto complete three figures on the third and final morning of the fixture with a single off Ben Higton.
Cullen was eventually dismissed for 101 from 184 balls after batting for 243 minutes and hitting two sixes and 12 fours.

He came in at number three after the dismissal of his Worcestershire team-mate and opener, Rehaan Edavalath for 17.

Edavalath put on 53 for the first wicket with Ben Chapman-Lilley.

Cullen added 89 with ex Academy player Nick Hammond for the third wicket and 69 for the seventh with Nick Bowley.

His sterling efforts helped Herefordshire score 324-9 in their allotted first innings of 90 overs in reply to Wiltshire’s 331 from 86.5 overs.
