Another wet weekend has ensured that the batting table has seen minimal movement yet again, with Steven Croft, Brad Rasool and Chris Wood retain the top three places respectively.

As Joe Gatting drops 2.2 points this week to leave him on 51.9, he makes way for Gordon Muchell at sixth place who remained on 54.1 points.

Glamogan’s Tom Maynard has once again pushed his way in to the top ten, settling in at number nine with 49.7 points this week, followed closely by David Brown of Cardiff Cricket Club, who has 45.1.

In the bowling MVPs the top three remain unchanged, with leading bowler Dinuka Hettiarachchi showing exactly why he is on top as he took a massive seven-wicket haul to see St Annes beat Preston this week. The former Sri Lankan left arm spinner opened the bowling and bowled his full 25 overs, conceding only 71 runs, including six maidens.

Samiullah Khan has leapt from ninth place to fourth place thanks to a five wicket haul against Stone Cricket Club. Khan went for 89 from his 27 overs to keep Stone down to 168 all out, a target that Burslem were unable to chase down.

Lytham’s opening bowler, Marcus Sharp, stormed into sixth place after he took a seven wickets for just 20 runs in just 14 overs. This left Wallasey in tatters as they were bowled out for a mere 75 of which the Lytham batting line up made light work.

Monty Panesar tumbles down in to eighth place from fifth after he was not in action yet again this week. Also Dan Colclough enters the top ten this week, he sits on 51.7 points, however his entry at number ten has come at the expense of former Pakistan international Saqlain Mushtaq, who drops down in to 12th  place.

Performance Of The Week

Oliver Whittaker made a brilliant 129 this week for Rotherham Town in their fixture against Cleethorpes. Whittaker went to the crease when the score was just 53 and he ensured Rotherham posted the strong total of 267, as he saw the innings through. This was all too much for Cleethorpes who collapsed to just 117 all out from 30 overs.
