King And Miller Top Averages In Cricket League

Jamaica’s Brandon King who was ignored for selection at the start of the WICB 4-day Pro League competition has not only boosted the Scorpions scores since joining the team but also proved that going forward he is a batsman that must be reckoned with in the tournament.

He currently occupies the number one spot in the batting averages. He averages 95.33 from two matches. In his last match against the Leeward Islands, he blasted the bowling attack all over the park to score his maiden century of 194.

King in his first match also manhandled the Trinidad & Tobago Red Force pace and spin bowling attack to score a stroke-filled 78.

Veteran batsman Shiv Chanderpaul continues his run glut and keeps going like “Ol’ Man River.”  His average of 74.50 puts him behind King, at the number two position.

Chanderpaul has batted in all five matches played by champions Guyana Jaguars.

The Leeward Islands’ Jahmar Hamilton leads with most runs, 485 including two centuries ahead of Anthony Alleyne with 451 runs and Chanderpaul 447 runs.

On the other hand, Captain Nikita Miller continues to show his class at the regional level in the bowling department. He leads with 30 wickets, the most thus far and boasts an impressive average of 13.93 from five matches.

Veerasamy Permaul is next with 27 wickets at 16.77.
