Following my agonising dismissal for 95 against arch-rivals Bradford there came another strong knock of 76 at home to Scarborough. The three-day league campaign then concluded with a pair of stumped twenty-somethings (24 & 26) against York at the LSC.
As the photographic evidence confirms my final dismissal of the competition was a controversial one!
I ended my first three-day league season for Leeds with a respectable 380 runs in nine innings at an average of 42.22. That placed me as the sixth highest run scorer in the Northern Cup. As well as striking 14 sixes my tally of 37 fours was the most in the league whilst my strike-rate of 102.98 meant that I was the only batsman to score at more than a run-a-ball!
Leeds finished a disappointing 3rd place out of six with Bradford claiming the title.
Next it’s onto the 50-over stuff followed by the T20 campaign.
