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.)

Better than Yasir Shah?

After Yasir Shah’s 14 wicket haul last week an article appeared on the web, (see foot of this post), suggesting that he is probably going to be the fastest ever to take 200 Test wickets. His current count is 195 at an average of 28.23 and a strike rate of 54.45. All this from just 62 innings bowled in his 32 Test career that is just over 4 years old. Decent.

Opened the Batting and the Bowling in the same League Match

Last week’s Ask Steven column on CricInfo looked at people who opened the batting and the bowling in the same ODI. The question and the answer was:

Q : Mehidy Hasan opened the batting and bowling for Bangladesh in the Asia Cup final. How many times has this happened?

Raimondo v Camberley September 2018

2nd XI play well but end League season with defeat to Camberley

Saturday 1st September 2018

Stoke D’Abernon 2nd XI 221 for 9 (50 overs)
Camberley 2nd XI 222 for 4 (34.4 overs)

Alex Clinton 6 for 26 but 2nd XI suffer narrow loss

Saturday 28th July 2018
Travelbag Surrey Championship Division 3 – 2nd XI Competition
Kempton 2nd XI 180 all out (38 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 2nd XI 168 all out (50.4 overs)
Kempton 2nd XI won by 12 runs

What a difference a year makes. Last year this mad game would probably have been won, but not even a near miracle last wicket stand was able to prevent Stoke slipping to another defeat to leave their chances of survival on the respirator.

Toby Tarrant Award

My Greatest XI – Toby Tarrant

Another “My Greatest XI “ has dropped into the Club in-box, this one courtesy of Toby Tarrant who writes…

Here you go guys, I’m sat by the pool in Verona compiling this. The things I do for this Club…

Ian Hopton
“Hoppy” has to be one of the first names on the teamsheet. Mr.Reliable in many ways, I can’t think of a game where he hasn’t contributed with either the ball, the bat or in the field. I’ll put him at the top of the order because the rest of this line-up likes to have a slog and we need someone to at least try and stick around. Plus we need him to lead the warm up and roll the wicket.

I noticed that Ajit Agarkar has a Test batting average of 16.79 despite having a century to his name. Is this the lowest Test batting average to include a century?
