Some Batting Stats

A slow Sunday, so some stats for those interested.


Had a look through this year's games and we had four genuinely good starts in the first innings (172-3, 197-3, 185-3, 168-2) out of 16

The other 12 are: 41-3, 85-4, 24-3, 45-3, 29-4, 124-4, 131-4, 130-5, 51-6, 57-3, 39-3, 53-4.


The average of Ballance, Gale, Leaning, Rhodes, Head and Williamson over a combined 76 innings was 22.4. Ten scores of over 50 (just two centuries) out of those 76 innings.

The average of Gale, Leaning, Rhodes, Head and Williamson over a combined 51 innings was 18, with 4 fifties out of 51 innings.


Yorkshire got more batting points than any other team, but who got them?

Hants: 5pts (Lyth 111, Jonny 246, Plunk 126)
Warks: 4pts (Balance 68, Leaning 51, Rash 63, Patto 63)
Notts: 2pts (Lees 92, Gale 44, Plunk 51)
Surry: 5pts (Root 213, Jonny 198, Rash 60)
Somer: 3pts (Lyth 106, Patto/Brooks last wkt stand of 76)
Lancs: 3pts (Rash 88, Bres 69, Hodd 40, Patto 45)
Durhm: 3pts (Lees 71, Ballance 78, Bres 63, Shaw/Coad last wkt stand of 44)
Middx: 3pts (Lees 63, Ballance 132, Bres 63)
Surry: 5pts (Lyth 202, Gale 61, Patto 51, Plunk 37)
Warks: 2pts (Head 54, Leaning 42, Bres 28, Patto 38)
Lancs: 2pts (Lees 85, Gale 83, Lehmann 46, Hodd 43)
Notts: 2pts (Hodd 96, Rafiq 74, Brooks 48)
Hants: 2pts (Lehmann 54, Bres 56, Brooks 34)
Durhm: 4pts (Lees 132, Ballance 71, Lehmann 56, Hodd 31, Rafiq 45, Brooks 36)
Somer: 0pts (Bres 38)
Middx: 4pts (Lyth 43, Bres 142, Hodd 64, Rafiq 65, Siddy 23)

Very good ect, I think that backs up what many people have been saying about the middle and lower order contributing a lot this year, probably too many in proportion to the runs scored.

Thanks. Interesting. Brooks has really come in this year in his batting.

Thanks for compiling the figures, ECT.

It highlights where the problems are. Our middle-order needs sorting out (3-5), assuming Rashid at 6, Bresnan at 7 etc, or we could be fighting against relegation, along with Essex, Durham & Lancashire next season.

I wouldn't be so quick to assume Rashid at 6.

First I would bat Bresnan above him every time.
Second he may come back from the winter tours ahead of Moeen Ali as England's preferred number one spinner.
Third he may come back and need a rest.
Fourth Strauss may request that he is not picked

Those stats show that Rash started the season strongly with the bat but (partly due to absences and maybe because he doesn't get opportunities to bat when he plays for the national team) didn't feature much in the second half as a batsman, whereas Bresnan's form grew as every match went on. I would certainly say that for now Bresnan should bat ahead of Rash based on form.

Thanks for the stats, Eastcoast. Very revealing.

A lot of fun to be had with these 'who contributed to batting points' stats from Eastcoast:

Who appears most often in the list: Bresnan (6), Lees, Hodd, Patto (5), Lyth, Ballance, Brooks (4) ...
Who scored most when they did make a contribution: Lyth, Bairstow, Lees, Bresnan (> 400), Ballance, Hodd (>250) ...
Who had the best average when made a contribution: Bairstow, Lyth (>100), Lees, Ballance (>80), Bresnan, Plunkett, Rashid (>70) ...
Proportion of innings played when made a contribution: Lehmann (60%), Bresnan (55%), Bairstow, Rafiq (50%), Hodd (42%) ...

Then, most interesting and insightful of all, who has the most Top Five appearances in each of those four ways of looking at it:

Bresnan -- All four. (No surprises there then)

Lees, Bairstow, Lyth -- three out of four.

Hodd, Ballance -- two out of four.

Rafiq, Patto, Lehmann -- one each.

A few observations. 1) The obvious -- of our recognised batsmen, Gale and Leaning were nowhere this year. 2) Although Lyth's performance looks good, he scored very badly on the proportion of innings when he actually did make a contribution (on 25% he's down at the bottom with Gale and Leaning). 3) Rashid's year with the bat was thin. (Plunkett did slightly better than Rash with the bat, in fact). 4) Hodd, Rafiq and Patto are the guys we have to be grateful for, especially Hodd. If we hadn't got so used to absolutely exceptional performances from Jonny B, there is no way there would be discussions on the Forum about the need to 'replace' our wicketkeeper/batsman. He has done a very good job in 2016.

I agree re Hodd - the higher up the order he batted, the better he looked. Hopefully a lesson learned there.
