As I understand this report is sorted by :
then innings batted in
then batting position.
When clubs have multiple teams all playing on the same day and same time how does the system know which player is first in the order? Eg our club has 4 teams – a 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th XI.
We award “Cap No’s” to players to acknowledge their first match so we need to have the order correct. So we have anyone new playing in the 1st XI coming before players in the 2nd XI etc. So I have to dump this report into Excel and then resort it based on the team they are in.
Just wondering does any other club use this report for this same purpose? and how do you do it?
Also we don’t do the order by batting position rather alphabetical like the Aussie Test does it. I think this is a more appropriate way as I’m not sure how you order it if 2 new players both don’t bat in their first game – which players goes first? If you do it alphabetical then there is always an order to follow.
