Undercliffe’s overseas player Khalid Usman has topped both the Championship One batting and bowling averages.

His performances helped the Intake Road side finish top of the table and he headed the averages despite missing the last four games of the season.

Usman scored 585 runs at an average of 65 and took 55 wickets at 8.38 with his left-arm spin bowling.

He is the first player to top both the batting and bowling averages in the same season since Spen Victoria’s Grant Lambert in 2000.

The left-arm spinner took 54 wickets at an average of 11.02 and finished ahead of the experienced Woodlands spinner Chris Brice who took 57 wickets at 11.96 runs apiece.

The Brighouse overseas player Deron Greaves capped a fine individual season by leading the Championship Two batting with an average of 65.75 after scoring 789 runs.

Jer Lane's Tom Watson topped the Conference batting averages with 773 runs at 77.30 with his team-mate Raqeeb Younis second with an average of 55.60.
