The 23-year-old Thomas represented Scraborough/Mason Hall and remained not out on 131 runs off just 31 balls. He helped his side to chase down Speyside's target of 152 runs in just eight overs.

He slammed 15 sixes and five boundaries during his knock. During his innings he cleared the park thrice and the umpires were forced to bring new balls.
