Hilton Cartwright has entered rarified air as a Twenty20 player.
It may only be a brief curiosity, given that he has played just five times - including a wash-out without a ball being bowled - and batted just three times, but the pugnacious all-rounder boasts the highest batting average in the game.
Cartwright's bruising unbeaten 68 was one of the few shining lights in Perth's big loss to Otago in their first Champions League outing and it boosted his career average to 90.
Only a handful of T20 players in the various leagues around the globe have managed to force their average above 50 - superstars like Chris Gayle and David Hussey hover in the low 40s - and there is little doubt that Cartwright's will plummet as he plays more matches.
The 21-year-old was pleased with his contribution, which included a brace of sweet blows into the Jaipur crowd, but laughed off suggestions that it was his best innings.
"I would love to say that was my best knock but I'm sure I've had better ones in the backyard," he said.
"It was great to go out there and help the team out as much as I could.
"We were all looking for someone to stand up in the chase for 242 and it was great to be part of making a decent final score.
"It wasn't the best innings I have ever played, but I enjoyed the task of taking on some of the elite players in this league."
Cartwright and his Scorchers teammates had three draining sessions on the training track as they prepared for last night's match against Rajasthan Royals that would determine whether they retained their slim mathematical possibility of qualifying for the CLT20 finals.
Rain fell throughout the day and threatened to scupper a second double-header after the Ahmedabad leg was washed out last week.
The Royals have won all 10 IPL and CLT20 matches at home this year and enter the game with a squadron of power hitters and potent bowling options.
Perth coach Justin Langer watched the AFL grand final with the rest of his squad and was much taken with Fremantle coach Ross Lyon's half-time comments that the Dockers had failed to execute the basics well enough.
Langer reinforced the need to make simple skills bulletproof while driving his charges with one of their toughest sessions of the tour.
"If Fremantle had kicked straight they might be premiers right now," Langer told his team.
"If we had taken our catches the other night we might be one up."
