‘King’ Kayde leads the league

- By NATHAN DE VRIES

BEECHWORTH Wanderers titan Kayde Surrey finds himself leagues ahead of the competitio­n in the A grade Championsh­ip Player rankings with just two rounds of the regular season remaining.

The Championsh­ip Player ranks the best overall cricketers for a season, across all aspects of play.

Runs are worth a single point, with various modes of dismissal are worth differing amounts.

Surrey has amassed 940 points to date, 166 points ahead of the nearest competitor in Wangaratta Magpies Pranav Menon (744 points), and 417 points ahead of the rest of the field, led by fellow Wanderer Matt Ryan on 523 points.

Surrey has had a stellar year with willow, bashing 595 runs so far this season at an average of 54.09, with a high score of 106.

A wizard with ball in hand, Surrey’s 25 season wickets have boosted his Championsh­ip Player rank, with a bowling average for the season of 10.36 and best figures of 4/14 against Wangaratta Magpies.

Surrey’s fielding efforts hold him in good stead as well, with ranking points coming from catches (four) and both assisted and unassisted run outs (three and one, respective­ly).

With two matches left to play, the rest of the field will have to put in some fantastic efforts to compete against Surrey.

Beechworth Wanderers A grade side travel down to Benalla to face the Bushranger­s tomorrow, weather permitting.
