Three centuries ensured there were plenty of fireworks in the Danish league on Sunday as Nicolaj Damgaard, Aftab Ahmed and Delewar Khan reached the batting landmarks.
Damgaard grabbed the headlines as he smashed 15 sixes in his whirlwind innings of 124 in just 45 balls - not bad for a player more renowned for his bowing as Denmark Head Coach Jeremy Bray outlined.

"Nicolaj is in our national senior side and is our best spinner," said Bray. "He is a 6 ft 4 inch left-arm orthodox bowler and normally a lower order batsmen. Since reverting to spin from medium pace bowling a little over two years ago Nicolaj has been the most economical bowler in any ICC event we have played in.
"He has worked immensely hard on improving his batting from where he was only two years ago - a very ordinary number 11 to a very dangerous all-rounder who hits the ball extremely hard, as we witnessed today.
"Nicolaj has so much confidence in his mindset. He was asked only at the change of innings would he open instead of batting at nine and went out to completely smash the opposition bowlers everywhere. Admittedly the bowling wasn’t the best he will ever face plus a few chances given late in his innings, but you still need to execute, which he did.
"Nicolaj for me is as good as any spinner going around in associate cricket. He just needs more competitive games to challenge him and take his game to another level."
Another centurion from the national set-up was the experienced Aftab Ahmed who scored101 from 98 balls as his KB side posted 219 for 5.

Ahmed hit 7 sixes as he and Saad Ahmed (63*) shared a sixth wicket stand of 164. Saif Ahmed then took five wickets for just 14 runs to seal a comprehensive 142 run win for KB.
The third centurion of the day was the relatively unknown Delewar Khan. The exciting prospect has just qualified for the Danish team after arriving as a refugee from Afghanistan four years ago, and Bray is excited by his potential.
"When Delewar first came into the National squad he was a left -arm slinging seamer bowling at decent pace and an absolute slogger who wanted to hit every ball for six.
"After being around and training with our best players his mindset around fitness and his batting has totally changed. He puts a much bigger price on his wicket which is showing through his three knocks this year where he has got an 86 and 45 as well as today's century.
"Delewar bats in the lower order for our national side and is a massive competitor who like Nicolaj is a very hard worker and really reflects hard on his game. A testament to his innings today was the amount of singles and twos he ran."
All in all the future looks bright for Denmark when their international side gets back on the park, hopefully later in the year.
