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: Read more

Godalming 288 for 7 (40 overs)

Bowled Out by a Stoker

This week’s “Ask Steven” feature on CricInfo saw one follower ask:

Cue panic with the tea lady now on site too! Read more
