I'm being hunted down by Arthur........ eek :scared

thank goodness for Mo with his econ bonus and a handful of runs return from an absolute drubbing for Pakistan. test match... easiest way to score big points and he'll be lucky to walk away with 70...........why oh why did I pick him?

I'll have to give some thought to which player I'm going to drop for next year :hmmm

might be a tough decision

Australia's Glenn Maxwell and Chris Lynn are among seven players who have listed their base price at the maximum of INR 2 crore (USD 279,000 approx) for the IPL 2020 auction, scheduled for December 19 in Kolkata.

Is that a hint that we'll have to make cash bids in 2020 Prof!

Takes a long time to calculate .... need recompense

More a sign that Maxwell might be a viable 2020 option after all.

I already have an 8 man shortlist I have been kicking around.

Back to back Cricketer of the Week accolades for two English Cricketers would make you think that English Test cricket was in the pink of health and that Chris Silverwood's debut as national coach has The Queen clamouring for her New Year's Honours List. Unfortunately this is not the case. After Ben Stokes' losing cause at the top of the weekly List last week, Joe Root followed suit this week with a massive 226 runs which sees him score 156 points more than second placed Callum Ferguson. Despite the batter friendly conditions in Hamilton, Root's career best Test score was a fitting way for him to re-enter the top 5. Yet again, this week saw the Top 5 change place considerably. Joe Root and, his age old enemy, Virat Kohli both shone on the international stage to force their agenda and move into 5th and 4th respectively. Despite scraping into the top five for the week, Ben Stokes was forced into sixth overall whilst inactive Rashid Khan has had the largest fall from grace. The Afghanistan spinner was fourth last week and has tumbled to seventh this week. England are now inactive for ten days until a warm up game in South Africa whilst India still have two more T20s and a three match ODI series against the West Indies to play. It seems that fourth place is Virat Kohli's to lose.

It is a rare treat to see Kane Williamson in the top 5. You need to go back to July and the World Cup for the last time the New Zealand captain graced one of the top 5 places. In fact his yield of 138 points for a century against England his highest score since that very week. It has been an unusually poor year for Kane Williamson but it is clear to see that when the talismanic captain plays he shoots up the table. This week he overtook no less than four players on The Cricket List and jumped from 19th berth to 16th. I wish no disrespect to those players around him, but for him to be in the mix alongside Morne Morkel, Shai Hope, Shubman Gill and Jack Leach shows that the New Zealander is under baked this year. In 2018, where Williamson finished 9th overall, he featured in 33 weeks of the year and averaged 128.82 points per week. With just three weeks left of 2019, Williamson has played in five fewer weeks and averages 97.61 points a week. That is a massive drop from the batsman and shows why he is in such a poor position comparatively. That being said, he is one of the few players in this list who will be seeing regular cricket all the way up to the end of the year thanks to the Test series against Australia so he could yet bridge that gulf.

This list is somewhat skewed towards two groups of players: international stars and County Championship imports. Two imports who disappointed this year have been doing rather better since returning to their home patches. Morne Morkel has been using the MSL to move himself up the table with a much greater rapidity than he was used to when turning out for Surrey. So destructive in the 2018 season, Morkel's numbers were dramatically down in 2019. In the 26 weeks that comprised the university games to the last round of fixtures in September, Morkel got 2438 points averaging 93.77 a week - this is including inactive weeks where the South African barely turned out in the T20 Blast or the Royal London One Day Cup. Many would have expected that to be the end of Morkel's year despite the fact that he was joining up with Tshwane. White ball cricket was not the forte of this player so a gradual slip down the table was only to be expected. This has not been the case. In the three weeks since the start of the MSL, Morkel has gained 262 points, an average of 87.33 a week - only 6.44 down on his red ball pomp. Not a bad showing from the old boy. Another veteran of the international scene who is absolutely tearing it up after a poor English summer is Callum Ferguson. In the 8 weeks that he has been back playing for South Australia, Ferguson has gained 854 points compared to the 1164 points he got in his 26 weeks playing for Worcestershire in all competitions. Ferguson's average in England was 50.61 whilst in 8 games back down under he averages a stonking 122 with three centuries in the last three weeks. This has seen Ferguson leap from 20th at the end of the County Championship to 14th this week - overtaking Leach, Gill, Hope, Morkel, Williamson and Parnell in the last seven days. The big question is whether Ferguson can keep this form up with Sydney Thunder in the BBL. If so, he could challenge those just outside the top ten with his late season form.

Jos and Joe only have one game left this year. If JB2 plays. So my year is drawing to a close. I'm waiting to be trampled on by Durham and Sussex over the next few weeks.
