how will you score the 4/5 day matches, Prof? I presume you will apply the 50 over scoring rules separately to each innings, rather than adding the two together. I'm think specifically about econ and SR bonuses.

Each innings will be counted separately.

Week 1 update

Naturally if you had told me that the most successful cricketer from our group was an Englishman in Australia I would have been overjoyed. Our boys had come good at last!?!?

The fact that Jos Buttler has been top of the tree whilst plying his trade for Sydney Thunder in the BBL has been somewhat galling. With a combined total of 102 runs with two catches from behind, he has been instrumental in both games for the franchise.

Is it a coincidence, one wonders, that the English wicket-keeper-batsman is back to his six hitting best just when the IPL auctions are on the horizon? Or is that just cynicism from me?

Participants from the BBL make up four of the top five most prolific Cricketers in the first week of 2018 due to the sheer amount of games played. The only player to rival them has been Kane Williamson whose 115 against Pakistan nearly fired him to the top position. The top three is completed by Afghanistan spinner Rashid Khan.

No doubt when the Test players complete their games though - all is to play for.

Jos Buttler - 191
Kane Williamson - 184
Rashid Khan - 180
Aaron Finch - 174
Jofra Archer - 160
J.P. Duminy- 151
Simon Harmer - 112
Jeetan Patel - 32
George Bailey - 11

Yet to complete a game

Hashim Amla
Ravi Ashwin
Quinton de Kock
AB De Villiers
Dean Elgar
Virat Kohli
Nathan Lyon
Mitchell Marsh
Shaun Marsh
Sunil Narine
Joe Root
Steve Smith
David Warner

In terms of our league, the Doc has prevailed in the short term by selecting two players outside of their international teams. Both picked up three Figure scores in their two matches this week. Rich and Andy trail with them selecting the first and second most prolific players from the week.

1. Dr Cricket - 334
2. Rich - 191
3. Andy - 184
4. GG-A Sohail - 180
5. The Professor - 151
6. DFM - 144
7. Arthur Crabtree - 11

Adi, Red Devil, FTS, Red Devil Jr. and Ian have all had no players complete a game.

Week 2 update (NB: Calculations done yesterday so does not include this morning's ODI

The cosmic lords of cricket are not being kind to England at the moment. Jos Buttler, the most impressive player from last week, has joined up with the England team and his points have plummeted accordingly. He has been usurped by Nathan Lyon who began this Ashes tournament by being an unlikely aggressor and ended it with five wickets in the final Test. England fans were left wishing it wasn't him that was on the receiving end of a Bairstow hello. This, added to a wicket in his return to the BBL for the Adelaide Strikers, puts him top of the tree for Week 2 and third highest on the overall rankings. The only saving grace is that the spinner is still persona non grata for white ball cricket.

By all accounts it has been a topsy turvy week for those players who were flying high from their BBL involvement last week. Buttler is joined by Rashid Khan and Jofra Archer - both of whom got scores in the hundreds last week but this week have been more underwhelming. The only thing that Archer can, literally, cling on to his superb return catch from Hobart Hurricanes victory over Brisbane Heat.

The most concerning player of the BBL bunch is George Bailey. With 16 runs from the last three matches, the Australian batsman is looking dramatically out of touch. The only saving grace for the Hobart player is his sharp performances in the field, where he is picking up more points than he has with his batting. His bad week has been further highlighted by the fact he was heavily implicated in the poor umpiring decision that marred the game against Brisbane. The only way is up for the Tasmanian.

On the other end of the scale from the razamataz of the BBL, two of the biggest performers so far this month are exiled South Africans playing in the rather more parochial Momentum One Day Cup. Despite the success of their international kinsmen, JP Duminy and Simon Harmer are doing rather well in this tournament and have the luxury of playing twice in a week. Duminy has been especially eye catching this week with scores of 81 and 22 for the Cape Cobras. His yield of 188 points this week surprisingly puts him as the most successful cricketer from our list after two weeks of January. The make or break moment for Duminy is his return to the international fold for the ODI against India. Can he continue this form or will he fade away?

By the time the year is up Kohli and Smith's years will feature heavily in the highlights reel but in the first fortnight they have been underwhelming. Smith and, to a lesser extent, David Warner have had their scores capped by a less than inspiring England performance that saw Australia limited to just one innings. There is no such excuse for Virat Kohli who joins Hashim Amla and Dean Elgar in a list of batsmen who are underperforming in this Test. The former two players shared 8 runs between them in the First Test with Elgar's fine form ending with a score of 25. With the Second Test underway some of these batsmen are putting themselves back on the right track but it is a rare instance indeed to see them so low in the overall rankings.

Week 2 Totals

Nathan Lyon - 275
Joe Root- 226
Shaun Marsh- 196
JP Duminy - 188
Mitchell Marsh - 171
Kane Williamson - 152
Simon Harmer 151
AB De Villiers- 140
Ravi Ashwin - 134
Steve Smith - 133
Quinton de Kock- 131
Rashid Khan - 85
David Warner - 76
Jos Buttler - 68
Jofra Archer - 50
Dean Elgar - 45
Virat Kohli- 43
George Bailey - 35
Jeetan Patel - 26
Hashim Amla - 7
Aaron Finch- 2

Total

JP Duminy - 339
Kane Williamson- 336
Nathan Lyon - 275
Simon Harmer -263
Jos Buttler - 260
Joe Root - 226
Rashid Khan - 225
Jofra Archer- 210
Shaun Marsh - 196
Aaron Finch - 176
Mitchell Marsh- 171
Ab De Villiers - 140
Ravi Ashwin - 134
Steve Smith - 133
Quinton de Kock - 131
David Warner - 76
Jeetan Patel - 58
George Bailey - 56
Dean Elgar - 45
Virat Kohli - 43
Hashim Amla - 7

Yet to play

Sunil Narine, Shakib Al-Hassan, Ravindra Jadeja

Bit of a reshuffle in our league with the introduction of the Test players, but nothing dramatic. Adi and Ian are the hardest hit with; Adi selected two of the hardest flops from the players and Ian having no one representing him yet. Andy is reaping the whirlwind of a strong start for Kane Williamson and a decent return for ABDV.

1. Andy - 660
2. GG-A Sohail - 451
3. Rich - 394
4. Dr. Cricket - 386
5. The Professor - 339
6. DFM - 321
7. FTS - 320
8. Red Devil Jr. - 302
9. Red Devil- 272
10. Arthur - 189
11. Adi - 50
12. Ian - 0

Avoided injury prone players (or likely to get injured) for this, specifically pace bowlers and all rounders. I hope i move away from the second last position.

ABD, Shakib, Boult namely where on the avoid list. Jofra Archer too.
