With the club cricket season now complete, we take a look at the final standings in the .
Vauxhall Mallard’s Glen Addicott ends the season as the leading batsman following previous leader Prabodha Ereshan De Silva Senevirathne’s disappointing final performance for Sleaford that sees him move down to fourth. Adam Rossington (Eastcote) is second, while Paul Borrington moves up to third after hitting an unbeaten century in his final match for Ticknall. Ali Jaffer (Banstead), Chris Harris (Bromley), David Brown (Mumbles), David Wainwright (Castleford), Mark Wallace (Port Talbot Town) and Nick James (Swansea) round out the top ten, with Moeen Ali dropping down to 15th after making only eight for Wolverhampton.
Dinuka Hettiarachchi (St Annes) maintains his virtually season-long reign atop the bowling ratings, ending with an astonishing 17 point lead over second-placed Simon Kerrigan (Ormskirk), while Knypersley’s Nayyer Abbas moves up to third after taking seven for 51 against Porthill Park. Asad Ali holds station in fourth following his three wickets for Wood Lane, but Waqas Chugtai (Burton Latimer) drops three places to fifth, with Fahad Masood’s five wickets for Bourne seeing him remain in sixth. James Tomlinson (South Wiltshire), Saqlain Mushtaq (West Indian Cavaliers), Chris Peploe (Ealing) and Ashar Zaidi (Netherfield) complete the top ten.
Overall MVP winner Nayyer Abbas (who gains the award for playing more than ten games for his club this season) gains two places to move up to second in the final week in the overall ratings, as he proceeded his bowling haul of seven for 51 with an unbeaten 38-ball 71. David Wainwright holds on to first position, with Ashar Zaidi, Joe Root (Sheffield Collegiate), Glen Addicott, Dinuka Hettiarachchi and Alex Smeeth (Werrington) taking positions three to seven. Waqas Chugtai and Moeen Ali could take only one wicket apiece for their clubs last weekend so drop down to 11th and 10th respectively, with Chris Harris and Tom Smith (Hampstead) the main beneficiaries.
