Lowest Career Averages to Contain a Century

In last week’s “Ask Steven” section on CricInfo “Irfan” from Pakistan asked:

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?

Ralphie v Old As 2016

50 Hundreds by Stokers – Part 5

So we reach the final part of the series. Here is Ralphie’s Top Ten…

OK, here we go…but before you read on, a bit of background as to why I chose these. When initially sorting the pieces of paper on the lounge floor, (seems ages ago, now), I kept coming back to these more than any, as they were brilliant hundreds in both their execution and importance to the match situation. All bar two had a direct influence on a positive result, (I had also been at the non-striker’s end for a short period of two of them so I am claiming an assist!); and where the hundreds were match-winning efforts they were clearly more memorable, and part of some crazy games to win given the events of the day; in some cases we met an opposition who were not as spirited as us and that made the win even more satisfying.

Ralphie v Old As 2016

50 Hundreds by Stokers – Part 3

Part 3, (of 5), of Ralphie’s take on the fifty centuries scored by team-mates and this week there appears to be a bit of an overseas flavour as he writes…

Centuries Making Up a Large Percentage of the Total (2)

Slow day yesterday and today so far for news, so time for some more stats…

Recently we published this article, (http://www.stokecc.co.uk/2016/12/23/centuries-making-up-a-large-percentage-of-the-total/), that created a lot of interest and web-site ‘hits’ so we’ve gone a bit further like we did after the initial “100+ for 0 then all out” article to make some comparisons with the professional game.

Stoke D'Abernon v Old Paulines Cricket.

Match Doubles in League Cricket

Ian Hopton’s match double of a half-century and a five-for in a 1st XI League match at the weekend was quite a rare species.

Dating back to our first year in the Fuller’s League in 1994, there have been only been four other instances, viz:

12th June 2010 – Ian Hopton – 57 not out and 13.5-3-49-7 v Thames Ditton (h)
