Belvoir co-coach Drew Cameron says New City batsman Shoaib Shaikh's ability to hit sixes at the death was the standout feature.
The former Mumbai first grade squad member smashed nine sixes in his 149 not out, which was 76 percent of the team's 7-197.
"It's definitely up there," Cameron said when quizzed if it's the best innings he's seen in nine years of Cricket Albury-Wodonga.
"It's probably the best knock at Kelly Park."
Cameron spent his first year at rivals St Patrick's, but is now in his eighth season with the Eagles.
"It's (Kelly Park) a bit of an odd deck, although it was pretty good on Saturday," he revealed.
"It's hard to start on because it's got a lot of grass on it.
"He didn't look good the whole way through, if that makes sense, (but) it's fair enough, it's Kelly Park."
Cameron says he felt before he reached his half-century, Shaikh was a chance to be dismissed, but after that took it to another level and even moreso in the final 10 overs.
"Once he got the length he wanted, he literally didn't miss, he hit everything clean for six, that's probably something we don't see a lot at this level," Cameron said.
"When you're trying really hard to push for extra runs and swinging so hard, you often miss, you might get a couple and that was probably the most impressive thing for me.
"Once he got to 40, I reckon it was just like, he's not getting out."
Kelly Park is smaller square of the wicket and, interestingly, Shaikh wasn't clearing the boundary by a large margin.
"It was as though he knew exactly how far it was to the boundary because he was only just clearing it, he just looks a class above," Cameron said.
"It was hard for me, standing on the boundary watching them go over my head, there's a part of me that wants to get him out, but I kind of wanted to watch him bat.
"He's a monte to score 1000 runs (he now has 574 with at least nine matches left)."
Cameron's praise of Shaikh's stylish batting is the greatest compliment an opponent can give.

"We still should have won, we batted pretty stupidly," Cameron explained.
"It wasn't throwing away wickets, trying to hit it over 'cow corner', but soft dismissals, five or six of our top eight played a nothing shot."
