Notes: 

 

The Won/Lost record of 21/46 is a massive deterioration from 2017 (43/33). Although the Dogs’ batting numbers (Dogs’ R/W, R/O and B/W) show substantial declines compared to 2017 (and compared to historical parameters), there was a worse deterioration in the bowling numbers (Opponents’ R/W, R/O and B/W). Our opponents’ scoring rate of 5.87 R/O is massive, both compared to the Dogs’ (4.73) and to the opponents’ 2017 value (4.82); it is also the highest on record, by far, in the club’s “modern era”. In summary, the Dogs’ bowlers, individually and collectively, took a tonking for the ages in 2018. That’s reflected in the individual bowling statistics (see below), which are markedly worse for many regular bowlers compared to 2017 (and their career performances).

 

The 13 consecutive defeats are the worst losing streak in club history; there was also a 6-game losing streak earlier in the season

 

The 307 runs conceded (for 4 in 35 overs) against Fairfield (WSL) was the most in club history. 

 

The 279 runs conceded (for 7 in 40 overs) against West Haven (SCL) was the 6thmost in club history

 

On a more positive note, the 22 runs (all out) scored by Danbury was the lowest completed innings by a Dogs’ opponent in club history, and the 17.1 over duration of the game was the shortest in history.

 

Several other games produced “Top 10” entries in respect of scores made and conceded (see Cumulative Team Records), including three defeats by >100 runs in the same weekend

The intra-squad games are included. 

This set of averages is the basis for all subsequent analyses.

 

Herno Smith’s batting average was the highest recorded in club history for a single season.

 

Prasanna’s scoring rate was the highest recorded in club history for a single season.

 

Only one batsman (vs. five in 2017) passed 500 runs, although several others came close. Nine fewer games were played this season. 

 

Note that, on average, a Mad Dogs’ wicket this season cost the opposition 16.20 runs at a scoring rate of 78.8 R/100b, but both those figures are inflated upwards to a significant extent (over 10%??) by extras, particularly by Willy Wide-Ball’s consistent contributions…

The intra-squad games are included. 

This set of averages is the basis for all subsequent analyses.


 

No bowler reached the 50 (or even the 40) wicket mark, for the first time since 2012 when far fewer games were played.

 

Note that, on average, an opposition wicket this season cost the Mad Dogs’ bowlers 22.93 runs and is taken every 23.5 balls at a scoring rate of 5.87 runs/over (97.8 runs/100 balls). As wides and no balls are charged against the bowlers, the skewing effect of extras is minimal.

Dismissed without scoring

The total number of ducks was 105 (30* on the 1st ball) accomplished by 55 different players. The total number is a few less than the all-time record set in 2016 (116 ducks, 30* 1stball, by 56 players. However, more games were played in 2016 (76 compared to 68 in 2018), and the number of ducks per-game is higher than in 2016. 

 

Since the Dogs lost 532 wickets during the course of 2018, a remarkable 19.7% of all dismissals were for a duck (i.e., almost 1 in 5!), with 5.6% being a first ball duck.

The bigger the Bunny Coefficient number, the bigger the killer.  

 

Martin Finn earns his second award. His winning B/C of 6.67 is at the low end of the winning range historically, perhaps because collectively we didn’t get down to the bunnies all that often… 

 

At the other end of the tableJohn “WTF is a bunny?” Moore’s B/C of 2.91 is only the 2ndexample of one under 3.00, the record being Sanjay Santhanam’s 2.79 in 2015.
