There is no doubt Mitch Bower will be the most prized wicket in next weekend’s RSL-Whitney Cup grand final.

And when you look at the numbers it is easy to see why.

In just over a month the South Dubbo captain has piled on 508 runs at an incredible average of 101.6 in all forms of cricket.

Making his run even more impressive is the fact he has scored single figures twice in that run.

If the past month is anything to go by, if Bower makes double figures this weekend he is going on to reach triple figures.

His golden run began in the McDonald’s Megahit when he made 104 against RSL-Colts’ Twenty20 side, the Bob Berry Blasters.

He was brought back to earth when only making 3 on the Saturday but the Megahit brought out the best of him again that Friday, March 3, when he banged 115 not out.

That was followed by an epic and brilliant 168 against CYMS the very next day.

He fell for a duck in the Megahit final on March 10 but brought up his fourth century of the summer on Saturday when making 118 in the RSL-Whitney Cup semi-final against Macquarie.

In total, Bower made the 508 runs in just 30 days.

Last season, Jason Green enjoyed a prolific run for Macquarie when he made three centuries in five matches at one point.

For RSL-Colts, two players have made centuries this season with Wes Giddings and captain Greg Buckley reaching the milestone.
