The tie against Far From The MCC CC was only the 4th in over 1100 recorded Mandarins games, and the first in a limited overs game. Needless to say, the scorebook does not actually add up to the claimed totals...

Highest score for 214/9 vs Charlatans. Highest score against 234/5 vs Millfields.

Lowest score for 94 all out vs Alton (0nly below 100 score). Lowest score against 97/5, HMT/Cabinet Office T18, 131/8 vs Superstars (proper cricket)

Mandarins scored 11 x 50s and no centuries.

  • Worst collapses were 4-4 vs Brightwell and 4-5 vs Peper Harow.
  • Arvind scored 4 consecutive Golden Ducks vs Millfields, Brill, Charlatans and Brightwell, undoubtedly a club record (only one other instance of 4 consecutive ducks by Bill Stow in 1985).
  • Sam Brand was in peril on 3 ducks before scoring at Elstead, and Tunbridge starts the new season on 3.

  • Versus Weekenders Tunbridge awarded 5 penalty runs under rule 28.2.1.3 (wicket keeper deflecting ball with discarded glove) – first instance of penalties in a Mandarins game.
