Spotlight on the 1st XI new ball pairing of Roscoe & Mitch (plus the rest of our 1st XI wicket takers)

We continue our forensic look at the 1st XI stats now that we have played through two-thirds of the season.
Ross Acton has had a huge influence on the teams success and his bowling figures are eye-catching – to say the least!
‘Roscoe’ has sent down 79.3 overs so far this season and no Bradninch bowler has taken more wickets in the 1st XI league games than he has. His count, after the win at Seaton, is 19 wickets at a cost of 180 runs and, what is most impressive of his figures is the economy one of just 2.26 runs conceded per over!
Indeed, ‘Roscoe’ is the only Bradninch bowler with a single figure average – his being 9.47
