Bowled Out by a Stoker

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

Which bowler has the best record of hitting the stumps, given a large amount of wickets?

Sunday 13th August 2017
Friendly
Bank of England 158 all out (39 overs)
Stoke D’Abernon 159 for 8 (30.2 overs)

Our thanks to Bank of England CC for giving us enough time to have another ring-around – miraculously an XI was completed and we kept one of our best Sunday fixtures alive.
