Ranking = Runs * Strike Rate

This year’s Division 1 50-Over County Championship batting rankings are headed-up by Danni Wyatt, in her first season at Sussex after signing from Notts. Wyatt helped her cause considerably with a near-run-a-ball hundred against Surrey on the last day of the season – one of only two centuries scored in Division 1 this term – the other being Eve Jones’ 110, also against Surrey.

Surrey’s Kirstie White ended the season as the County Championship’s highest run-scorer with 337 runs, including 3 fifties at an average of 48; but a relatively sedate Strike Rate of 54 pushed her down the rankings to No. 6.

A couple of younger players on the way up are Surrey’s Bryony Smith at No. 9, who also had a good Kia Super League, and Berkshire glove-butler Carla Rudd in at No. 11 – finally starting to fulfil the promise that she showed as a junior with the bat.

But this doesn’t mean the old-timers are done yet, with Kent’s ex-England duo of Charlotte Edwards and Lydia Greenway at Nos. 10 and 13 respectively; and Middlesex veteran Beth Morgan also making the top 20.
