Notable events: This was the season of Covid-19, with recreational cricket banned until 11 July. 39 players turned out for the Mandarins (2019,53) of whom 13 appeared just once. Mandarins took 42 catches and stumpings. A rough tally showed the number dropped was only around half that of chances held, a very considerable improvement on the 2019 ratio. Worst collapse was against SMCC Midweek from 188-2 to 224 all out, including 6 for 8, 216-4 to 224 all out, chasing 227.  Against Heber the top 6 batsmen in the order were right handers, and the bottom 5 left handers –thanks to Paul Mills for spotting that trivia.
