MANDARINS FULL CAREER DIGEST 1978-2021, plus a few earlier games.

There were some pesky formatting problems with this one, so instead please download a document very similar to the one Chris sent me. It's a remarkable piece of work with many surprises. As a taster, here are the subject headings:

  • Players making more than 100 appearances
  • 1000 runs
  • 500 in a season
  • Seasons reaching 300 runs aggregate
  • Catches / Stumpings (qualification: 50)
  • Fielding victims per match
  • 50 Partnerships
  • Most 50 partnerships (qualification: 7 plus)
  • 1000 Overs
  • 100 Wickets, and Strike Rate (balls)
  • 50 wickets in a season
  • 5 wickets in an innings

All the work of Chris Baker.

Bowling

  • Best bowling was Rakesh Ramani 12-4-26-6 vs Elstead. 

Notable events

58 players turned out for the Mandarins (2019,53) of whom 26 appeared just once. Mandarins took 86 catches and 8 stumpings. Baxter had most victims, 8+1, at least three of which were sensational.  Worst collapses were 6-9 vs North Enfield, 5-10 vs Hornsey, 5-10 vs Taplow, 5-11 vs Millfields, 5-12 vs Heber. Against Abinger we fielded possibly the most experienced team ever, with an estimated 2,726 caps between them. By only modest contrivance on tour we managed a father and daughter (Hurst) batting against the bowling of a father and daughter (Porter). Vs Norfolk and Suffolk over 70s we recorded the largest age margin of 64 years between our youngest (Josie Eastaway) and oldest (David Lowen) players, and the largest margin for an opening partnership, 59 years between David and Harry Forman.
