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

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.) Read more

Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon 251 for 6 (35 overs)
The Min 196 all out (31.4 overs)

More late season fun and a triumph for patience. As the weeks go by and more players call time on their seasons, some having previously said available, there was still a Stoke side ready for a game if an opposition could be found. Read more

Centuries Making Up a Large Percentage of the Total – Revisited

This week’s Ask Steven column on CricInfo returned to the question of the highest percentage of a total scored in a One Day International.

The last time he was asked the question we had a look at our own centuries, (links to the original articles at the bottom of this page), and have added the hundreds scored so far this season to the list. Read more

Overs 40s beat Leatherhead

Thursday 19th July 2018
Friendly
Stoke D’Abernon Over 40s 176 for 3 (20 overs)
Leatherhead Over 40s 96 for 6 (20 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon Over 40s won by 80 runs

Leatherhead were the latest to put together an Over 40s side as this highly successful initiative started by Stoke and Weybridge a couple of years ago continues to grow. Don’t read the scorecard as a one-sided affair. Everyone was involved and Stoke ran out winners against a newly formed team who, with games, will reduce the targets they will have to chase and put more on their own total. Read more

Walton-on-Thames Over 40s won by 8 wickets

The Over 40s squad’s unbeaten run stretching back to last July came to an end as Walton-on-Thames chased down the required total with 14 balls to spare and plenty of wickets in hand. Read more

What is it about T20 matches at Stoke this year? With the boffins at CricInfo looking into our seemingly unique Surrey Championship T20 win against Horsley & Send in May, (http://www.stokecc.co.uk/2018/05/25/t20-win-over-horsley-send-on-cricinfos-radar/), they’ll be at it again to see if a side has ever won a match with three sixes off the last three balls…and before you ask, remember that Ben Stokes wasn’t hit for all those sixes off the last four balls of that World T20 Final…and he had 19 runs to play with. Stoke needed 24 off the last over of this one. Read more
