“If he bats the innings in a one-dayer, he would end up with 150-plus,” Harris said.

“He’s hit a few big sixes, but it’s the way he just leans on his drives, he times it so well.”

Brown has cemented his spot at opener, at least until the two-dayers start.

“We’ll see how it unfolds once we get into the two-dayers,” Harris said.

“He’s opened a few times in those games, and has made some big scores, but we’ll go with the best balance for the team.”

Brown finished 63rd on last season’s run-scorer’s list with only 138 at 11.50.

He’s now jumped into sixth spot this season, blasting 193.

He has an equal league-high five 6s, along with Albury captain Kade Brown, and has smashed 28 boundaries.

Brown has a highest score of 61 not out against New City in round six.
