Evans breaks 750 wicket barrier for Waratahs

He is an institution at the Waratahs, and he just keeps breaking records.

In Round 1 of the 2016/17 season, the evergreen Warren Evans hit 750 wickets for the club by taking the 8th wicket of the Easts 3rd grade innings.

It’s an absolutely amazing achievement and keeps Evans in 2nd place in the Waratahs all-time leading wicket takers, clearly ahead of 3rd placed Ron Watkins on 696.

Of course Warren still has a fair amount to go in order to overtake the 1st placed Jim Randall who took 851 wickets for the Tahs between 1900 and 1935.

Warren has an amazing record. He has taken a wicket every season since his debut in 1986/87 and is infact in his 31st year at the Tahs.

Add this to his 5,000th run made last season and Warren is already one of our greatest ever players, even if just for his longevity.

How long can he go? Well, that’s a not an easy question to answer. These days Warren is a Premiership winning 3rd grade captain and could seemingly go on forever. His batting went to another level last season so even if not as a bowler, his batting prowess in the lower grade could continue forever.

Is Randall’s 851 wicket mark under attack? You would have to say that it is unlikely as he would need another 5+ seasons but you just never know. Wazza has the bowling action of a prince and just keeps going and going. Whatever the answer, we look forward to seeing what Wazza can do on the field in 2016/17.
