Playing every since game (a rare event in itself these days), Wickramasinghe scored 629 runs, in addition to taking 28 wickets, while Green’s 36 victims (one more than 2018) won him the CD1 bowling prize for the second consecutive season and played a significant part in Parley’s championship triumph.
Wickramasinghe was seldom out of the action in any of Burridge’s matches, his 113 spearheading a thrilling run chase against OTs & Romsey, while more runs followed against Old Basing, Alton, runners-up Hook & Newnham Basics II and Easton & Martyr Worthy. He regularly chipped in with wickets and a fine economy rate to boot.
With over 80 wickets to his name in the past three seasons alone, Ollie Green has been one of the main players in Parley’s rapid climb through the County Divisions. His 36 scalps last summer included a 5-17 return against Sway, four-wicket hauls v Easton & Martyr Worthy and Old Basing, and three other four three-wicket returns. He’s no mean performer with the bat either, as his May bank holiday century against Ryde confirmed.
