Moeen Ali Is Week's Biggest Mover In Kingfisher Beer Cricket World Club MVPs
As the club cricket season draws to a close, we take a look at the winners and losers in this week's top tens.
David Hemp makes way for Glen Addicott (Vauxhall Mallards) at the top of the batting ratings after the Knowle and Dorridge man could make only nine during his team's defeat to Shrewsbury. Adam Rossington (Eastcote), Muhammad Jaffer (Banstead) and Paul Borrington (Ticknall) also benefit from his poor performance and occupy positions two to four. Moeen Ali is the week's biggest upward mover following his century for Wolverhampton that sees him gain nine places and move up to fifth. The non-playing trio of Chris Harris (Bromley), David Brown (Mumbles) and David Wainwright (Castleford) are next with Glen Batticciotto, who made 29 for Nantwich, in tenth.
The top four places in the bowling ratings remain unchanged with Dinuka Hettiarachchi (St Annes) continuing to lead the way despite not featuring last weekend. Simon Kerrigan (Ormskirk), Asad Ali (Wood Lane) and Nayyer Abbas (Knypersley) all did enough on Saturday for their respective teams to maintain their hold on poitions two to four, while James Tomlinson moves up to fifth following seventh-placed Chris Peploe's wicket-less performance for Ealing. Bourne's Fahad Masood is the week's biggest mover in the bowling top tens after his haul of seven for 43 that took his side to victory at Boston sees him ove up four laces to sixth. Ashar Zaidi (Netherfield), Waqas Chugtai (Burton Latimer) and Luke Ryan (Banbury) round out thr top ten.
Hardly any of the players from last week's top ten in the overall ratings played on Saturday, meaning that the top seven all remain the same. David Wainwright therefore continues to lead the way, with Cricket World Club Performer of the Month for August Alex Smeeth staying in seventh. Moeen Ali is a new entrant inside the top ten in eighth as he preceded his match-winning century with five wickets for Wolverhampton. Chris Harris and Tom Smith (Hampstead) complete the top ten.
