Career Runs in Sixes

Mr Handel from Cobham contacted the Club to ask what proportion of runs he and his peers have made in 6s. In some rare down-time over the Christmas period we’ve now managed to put a couple of things together that we hope answers his query.

Of the players that played in 2018, here are the percentages of their career runs for the Club in sixes. To make this list you must have hit a minimum of eight career sixes and scored a minimum of 150 runs for the Club:

Virat Kohli

Kohli v Stoke (2) : Consecutive 20+ Scores

India drew first blood in the Test Series this week despite a moderate contribution from Virat Kohli. However Virat added another impressive stat to his CV recently in the ODI series against the West Indies where, having made 157 not out, he made an eighteenth successive score of 20 or more in ODIs, (passing Matthew Hayden’s run of 17 20+ scores in 2007.) He then extended his run to nineteen with 107 in the next match before finally falling for 16 in Mumbai. Twelve of Virat’s knocks were also over 50, (8×100, 4×50.)

The 100

Over 40s beat Leatherhead in Inaugural 100 ball match

Friendly
Leatherhead Over 40s 77 for 8 (100 balls)
Stoke D’Abernon Over 40s 78 for 2 (70 balls)
Stoke D’Abernon Over 40s won by 8 wickets

The ECB may be trialling the 100 ball game soon, (http://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/24461064/pca-confirms-involvement-trials-ecb-100-ball-competition), but Stoke’s and Leatherhead’s Over 40s got in first and played out a highly sociable game despite the time of year suggesting miners’ helmets might be needed. To avoid this prospect the sides were creative by bowling the first 48 balls from one end, then the remainder – including the ten ball final over – from the other.
