Notable Events

53 players turned out for the Mandarins (2018, 47) of whom 17 appeared just once. Mandarins took 76 catches and stumpings, double last year’s 38. However, don’t get complacent. A rough tally to the end of May showed the number dropped was over double that of chances held. Worst collapses were against Palm Tree 35 for to 36 for 6 (5-1); and All Stars T20 96 for 4 to 104 for 9 (5-8). But resilience is growing. Mandarins were not bowled out for under 100, and this has now happened only twice in the past three years. Chris Morgan created a possible record of 29 years between Mandarins appearances, vs Great Ayton, Yorkshire June 1990, and North Enfield June 2019.

Best Partnerships

  • 1 st 57 vs Peper Harow (Pharoah/Tunbridge)
  • 2 nd 111 vs Hockerill (Somerville/Healey)
  • 3 rd 84 vs Millfields (F CHave/Healey)
  • 4 th 50 vs All Stars T20 (Brand/Reeve)
  • 5 th 85 vs Charlatans (Somerville/Healey)
  • 6 th 112 vs North Enfield (Warren/Cook) . This is (provisionally) the second highest partnership ever made for the Mandarins 6th wicket.
  • 7 th 36 vs SMCC (Warren/Healey)
  • 8 th 95* vs SMCC Sunday (Manian/H Forman) This is (provisionally) the record for the Mandarins 8 th wicket. Congratulations guys!
  • 9 th 41 vs Bank of England (J Porter/Heard)
  • 10 th 29 vs Palm Tree (Venky/ D. Forman)
