Undercliffe's Khalid Usman is double tops

3 Oct 2018

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.

In the Premier Division the batting averages were headed by Pudsey St Lawrence opener Mark Robertshaw who was the only batsman to score more than 1,000 runs. He finished with 1.071 at an average of 71.93.

Farsley’s young spinner James Logan, who made his County Championship debut for Yorkshire in the final game of the season at Worcester, was the top bowler.

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.

The talented young Birstall all-rounder Josh Haynes took the Championship Two bowling honours despite missing the last two months of the season. He claimed 33 wickets at 7.82 with a best return of 8-23.

The Premier Division wicketkeeping honours were taken by Hanging Heaton’s Ishmail Dawood with 37 victims.

Batley’s Naik Zada topped the lists in Championship One with 37 victims, while Keighley’s Adam Smith and Hopton Mills’ James Glover sharing top spot in Championship Two with 26 victims.

League records officer Michael Rhodes has audited the averages for the top three divisions and will release further averages shortly.
