While some cricket statistics remain etched into time like barnacles on a boat, others are at risk as were the sand castles braced for the lapping waves on Scarborough’s North Bay Beach during this year’s cricket festival.
If the briefest summer shower of cricket stats is your thing then here we go…
1 – The new ICC Test ranking for Joe Root. Officially now the top-ranked batsmen in world cricket.
14 – Number of extras in Australia’s 60 all out at Trent Bridge and also, their highest scorer.
25 – Percentage of Yorkshire’s total Championship runs, scored by Jonny Bairstow this season before Scarborough, stat from a listener on BBC Radio Leeds.
164 – The unbeaten score by Elliot Callis which saw Yorkshire Academy get past York at Weetwood in the ECB Yorkshire League.
327 – The score at North Marine Road when Yorkshire next lost a wicket after being 79-5 in their second innings.
50 – Number of points Yorkshire are ahead in the LV=County Championship. With Kane Williamson to jet in for the last few games.
50,000 – The rumoured price tag Yorkshire CCC will need to shell out to secure the services of left-arm seam bowler David Willey from Northamptonshire.
