Sway players make the HCL averages!

Sway were again well-represented in the Hampshire Cricket League 2016 official averages which have now been announced. Congratulations to all.

Our 1st XI skipper Alex Hall again leg from the front, scoring the most runs in CD3S, averaging over 50 in the process. Only just behind him was top order partner Tim Noble who also scored over 500 runs at over 50 - if you have two players in a team doing that then you should finish right up the table. Hall and Noble also featured in the top batting partnership of the season - 237 in the final game of the season at Woodgreen.Tucked away in 17th was Nilantha Atapattu who had a relatively quiet season with the bat by his own standards!
