Statistical Commentary

Congratulations to Martin "Mad Dog" Thomas for winning the Madness League this year. Martin was strongly challenged for the award by David Stiffell, who has clearly made an impression with his unique "dancing" bowling run-up. Indeed, Martin's margin of victory was not as wide as the all-conquering John Priestland last year - perhaps it was Martin's submission of his own rankings, copying everyone in, that sealed the award. I am not so sure, though - his choice of loafers with cricket gear, Nomads' background, use of an assumed name, and eccentric (but increasingly effective) batting will have played a much stronger part.

Jeff Hilson, (for he's a jolly good fellow) the "Rolls Royce" of Exiles madness, retains his No. 3 slot, but the big mover this year has been Pablo Palao, going up from 14 to 4 - clearly his tour antics, tea-scoffing, and "quirky" fielding have made a strong impact on his team-mates. "The Plough's" rise in madness has consigned Mark Bradshaw to the "UEFA Cup challengers" along with Matt Cook, Andrew Sammut, and Naren Patel who have roughly maintained their positions.

Quentin Davies and John Hodgson have retained their positions as the most sane players, but are joined by James Bedford. Of the other newcomers, I have already discussed David Stiffell, but Joe F-D was very consistent and secured a very respectable 10th place. Simon Gundry, on the other hand, attracted widely varying rankings (he had the highest standard deviation), and finished in 14th place despite receiving more top 5 placings than anyone outside the top six. Phil Chamberlain and Keith Roberts also received large variances in rankings, while there was most agreement about the placings of Martin Thomas, Jeff Hilson, and John Hodgson.
