The DIsgraced Duo didn't pick up points for their pub team exploits.

I have been including everything that has been listed on a player's cricinfo page - this has included Tour Matches.

Leach's score for this game reads 5 runs with one wicket.....so 25 points give or take economy or catches...doesn't sound like a free for all.

I am an unashamed fan of Simon Harmer. For a man to perform so consistently week in week out, in whatever competition he participates in is something worthy of credit. He has had another stellar week with 9 wickets in his game against Cape Cobras. He has coupled this with thirty points for runs scored and ten points for his strike rate - something that has been happening ever more regularly for the South African. Another string to his already fairly string heavy bow. His 290 this week is enough to see him take first place for the week and return to his place at the top of the tree in the overall league. This is something that we became familiar with in 2018 - with Harmer leading the pack for the last third of the year - but could this be a sign that Harmer may potentially outstrip last year's success? This time last year, Harmer had 351 points - this year he has 130 more than that. Furthermore it wasn't until the English Summer and his exploits in the County Championship that we saw him reach the pinnacle of the overall table. But yet here he is in top spot in just Week three. Could Harmer's 2019 total outstrip his 8426 points of last year?

I'm not the first to say that Joe Root always performs better in Tour matches than he does in the Test matches but that has been brought into sharp focus with his point scoring this week. 237 points from the warm up game against the West Indies President's XI is a good yield - especially when you take into consideration that, unlike his other England team mates on the list, he only played in one of the two fixtures. Another eyebrow raising figure is the three wickets that he took to claim him 60 points from just his bowling. This is a pattern we saw last year and is a situation that Joe Root exploits much more than any other player on our list. If we compare the feast that Root indulged in against the West Indies' side and compare it to the rest of the England players we see that he did disproportionately better than Ben Stokes and leagues better than Jack Leach and Jos Buttler - all three of whom played both matches. So what does this say about Root? That he doesn't drop his focus regardless of the opposition? That he cares more about these tour matches? That he feels he will be unduly criticised if he were to not succeed? One thing that is clear is the stark difference between this week's bumper yield of points and the meagre pickings he has had in the BBL. He has scored double the amount of points this week than he has in the whole of his time with the Sydney Thunder. I think the bell has tolled on Joe Root's T20 aspirations. Time to move on to bigger and longer things.

I think it must be pretty hard being a professional sportsman. One week you can be riding high whilst the next you are in the doldrums. Kuldeep Yadav is a case in point of this. Last week's top scorer with 223 points sees himself register 0 this week. This is zero points for a game that he played in and bowled 10 overs. After this performance he was then dropped for the third ODI. This really is a confusing period of time for the young Indian spinner. This confusion only becomes slightly more mystifying when you see that Kuldeep plays proportionately better when India are on the back foot. His table topping Week came from a drawn Test and a lost ODI, whilst this week's pointless yield saw two Indian victories and a series claimed by his nation. On his day Kuldeep can be destructive but, as is the case with the second ODI, he can also come across as relatively ineffectual. It goes without saying that this poor week has changed his overall position, dropping from second place to just outside the top ten. It is still early days and hard to tell which of these two points he will come to rest at.

God bless DFM and his altruism.

I accidentally awarded Mo Abbas 100 more points than I should have done due to the fact that I do the clacs manually with paper and pen and got distracted half way through a plus sign therefore rendering +20......into something that looked more like I20.

Updated lost looks like this:

I think this time last year he had a bit of a rest and didn't play for a few weeks. Doubtless he'll do the same this year, perhaps during the one day cup. I hope he doesn't take it all off, because it appears to take place over about 8 weeks. He has 2 rounds of 4 day cricket in which to excel and that might be that until the county season kicks in

Indeed - 2 day warm up matches are not played to a result and not counted towards a players career statistics. The format is usually a 90 over innings regardless of how many wickets or runs are scored.

Picking a Indian bowler was too risky with Virat opting for at least one change in each match under his captaincy. You have to hope he does not misses lots of matches in 2018.

Virat Kohli will be rested for the last two ODIs against New Zealand as well as the T20I series that follows. Rohit Sharma will lead in his absence
