Stokers Better/Worse than Virat Kohli

This week’s Ask Steven column on CricInfo looked at one of the poorer sides of Virat Kohli’s game. The question and the answer was:

Q : Does Virat Kohli have the worst average for anyone who has bowled more than 100 overs in ODIs?

A : Virat Kohli has so far taken four wickets in one-day internationals, for an average of 166.25. That is indeed the highest average for anyone who has bowled more than 100 overs. Next comes an Indian captain of a much earlier vintage, S Venkataraghavan, whose five ODI wickets cost him 108.40 apiece. Pommie Mbwangwa of Zimbabwe, (11 wickets at 103.63), also ended up with a three-figure average.

Surrey Championship T20 Entry Confirmed

Part of the League Rep’s job is to make sure we’re entered for the Surrey Championship T20 competition. Surrey are one of the participating counties in this national tournament that, if the county winners are successful, they go into the regional rounds leading to a possible finals day at a First Class County Ground televised on Sky Sports. Last year our friends and neighbours from Ashtead made it to the final; John Vaughan-Davies, (Stoke groundsman who has also played the odd game for us to show us how well our square plays!), scooped the man-of-the-match award in the semi-final.

Future Bright despite Academy Loss at Beddington

Sunday 5th July 2015
Surrey Trust League
Beddington 206 for 7 (40 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 136 all out (26.4 overs)
Beddington won by 70 runs

Sometimes phrases like “take the positives” or “many positives in defeat” are mis-used, often to soften the blow of a defeat or a poor performance, or end up glossing over technical or performance issues; but Stoke’s 2015 Trust League vintage looks like it will contain many future first team players, and a bit of fine-tuning and ironing out the things that didn’t go quite so well from this opening match should be a straightforward task.

Academy pay the price at Valley End

Surrey Trust League
Stoke D’Abernon 181 all out (34.5 overs)
Valley End 183 for 7 (39 overs)
Valley End won by 3 wickets

Stoke’s Academy paid the price for not batting their overs and lost their unbeaten record at Valley End.

James Trower cracked an even 50; but only James Corbishley, (25), and a typical cleanly struck 31 from Michael Dolman were the only other scores of note as Stoke were shot out for 181 in just 34.5 overs.

Stoke D’Abernon U15 178 for 2 (24 overs)
Ashtead U15 121 all out (24 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon U15 won by 57 runs

Sarah Trower writes:

Another good win for the U15s beating Ashtead today

Notable performances from Max Subba Row, (retired on 61), Marcus Mahne, (retired on 63) and Charlie Spawforth who hit 29 with the bat; and Jack Rustom took four wickets; but overall a great all round performance from the team.
