Former Warwickshire, Glamorgan and Bermuda batsman David Hemp is the new leader atop the following his pair of half-centuries for Knowle and Dorridge over the Bank Holiday weekend.
Last week’s leader Chris Harris drops down to eighth after not batting for Bromley, while Paul Borrington drops two places to fifth after scoring a duck for Ticknall. Eastcote’s Adam Rossington and Mumbles’ David Brown are the main beneficiaries from their poor performances and move up to third and fourth places. Banstead’s Muhammad Jaffer, Swansea’s Nick James, Glen Batticciotto (Nantwich) and David Wainwright (Castleford) each move up a couple of places despite either not playing or having their matches washed out.
Dinuka Hettiarachchi (St Annes), Simon Kerrigan (Ormskirk), Asad Ali (Wood Lane) and Nayyer Abbas (Knypersley) remain the top four in the bowling ratings in spite of the fact that Ali was the only one to play last weekend. Former Middlesex slow left-armer Chris Peploe (Ealing) swaps places with South Wiltshire’s James Tomlinson after taking five for 46 against Twickenham. Waqas Chugtai (Burton Latimer) makes his maiden appearance inside this year’s top ten with a haul of five 37 and is seventh, while Bourne’s Fahad Masood does the same and moves into tenth. Saqlain Mushtaq (West Indian Cavaliers) and Ashar Zaidi (Netherfield) are eighth and ninth, with Luke Ryan (Banbury) and Carl Simon (Preston Nomads) dropping outside the top ten.
Only three players from last week’s overall ratings top ten featured in matches last weekend meaning that there is very little change. David Wainwright, Nayyer Abbas and Ashar Zaidi each benefit from the fall of Chris Harris and occupy the top three places, while Joe Root, who did play for Sheffield Collegiate and took eight wickets, moves up to fourth. Glen Addicott (Vauxhall Mallards) and Hettiarachchi remain unmoved in fifth and sixth, with Alex Smeeth moving up to seventh of the back off 109 runs and seven wickets for Werrington over the Bank Holiday weekend. Stephen Parry (Bootle) and Nick James round out the top ten.
