There is a new leader at the top of the . Prabodha Ereshan De Silva Senevirathne now leads the way after completing the minimum requirement of three matches. He has made a spectacular, if very belated, start to the club season for Sleaford in the Lincolnshire Premier League and scored two centuries in his first three matches. The remainder of the top ten remains more or less unchanged with Muhammad Jaffer (Banstead) in second and Glen Addicott (Vauxhall Mallards) in third.
Burton Latimer's Waqas Chugtai is the big mover in the bowling ratings this week following his astonishing haul of nine for 15 against Stony Stratford that sees him move up seven places to second. Dinuka Hettiarachchi maintains his virtually season-long reign at the top, with Simon Kerrigan (Ormskirk), Asad Ali (Wood Lane) and Nayyer Abbas (Knypersley) occupying positions three to five. Fahad Masood (Bourne) took seven wickets in his match against Bracebridge Heath to stay in sixth, while Saqlain Mushtaq took seven wickets for West Indian Cavaliers to move up to eighth. Chris Peploe (Ealing) and Ashar Zaidi (Netherfield) round out the top ten.
The overall ratings are once again pretty much unchanged, with Waqas Chugai the only mover; his outstanding bowling performance putting him eighth. This means that David Wainwright (Castleford) continues to lead the way with Ashar Zaidi (Netherfield) and Joe Root (Sheffield Collegiate) completing the leading trio.
