As you can see, 2014 was a great year for batting records with no less than 15 new top 10 entries. Top knock goes to Niall Gallagher, making a rare non-astro knock with his rapid fire unbeaten 68 v Hythe in the Tony Woodhouse Trophy claiming the Club record for batting at number 9. Chris Hammond managed two new entries whilst Dave Marshall managed 3. The number 8 record looks vulnerable next year Colin Hampton and I an Stone's record of 58 has stood for many years albeit James Marshall went close in 2014.

 

Quackers

Dapper still dominates the overall duck table albeit his percentage is down a few points from 2013. Elsewhere it was a very bad year for Sway players who had never had a duck - the previous leader Barry Jones (31) picked up a quacker in 2014 as did Martin Symons (15) and Ryan Drayton (10). This leaves a new leader from current players - Oscar Marshall with 5 games to his name without a duck.

Aside from Oscar, Jones remains the least likely person to get a duck, closely followed by Mr Atapattu. Next up for some reason is Caspar Todd who does not appear to get many ducks or runs!

Sway Batting by Ground

The most interesting thing about these stats is that it does not appear that the perceived quality of the wicket makes much difference to the overall batting average.

Few would disagree that the wicket at Pitmore Lane was a bit rough, however the batting average is not significantly different to that at other grounds. Milford scores well in terms of average but the figures are skewed by the very successful season the 3rds had there in 2014. As you would expect, Bashley's artificial wicket has the highest overall average.
