OVAL WORLD FANTASY CRICKET LEAGUE 2017

Tuesday, 25th April - Possible calls of "fix" already, with two Surrey CCC Supporters' Club committee members in the top three. Club secretary, Simon Hemsley has seen his side exit the traps the quickest, thanks mainly to the only two Surrey players in his squad - Tom Curran and Mark Stoneman. Brian Cowley's key performers are Jordan Clark and Stephen Parry, both of Lancashire. Should Clark and Parry have big seasons in the championship, Brian could take some catching since both are only in two squads.

Tuesday, 30th May - It's now a case of Mark Percival's Magicians and Paul Trumble's Cream Of The Crease breathing down the necks of Simon Hemsley's Visigoths. The former's team have racked up 73 points in the last month - ten more than the next best during the same period - Richard Budden's Surrey Stars, who swap 20th spot for 7th. Another significant mover is Thomas Earl's XI who have risen from 15th to sixth.

Tuesday, 13th June - Now that Brian Cowley's Ruislip Ramblers have really started to pick up their feet, this year's fantasy is looking as if it will be a two-horse race between Brian and Simon Hemsley, the man he knocked off the top spot. Mark Percival drops from 2nd to 3rd - eight points or so off contention. But that's the same amount as separates the next four, which includes Jamie Dowling's Cherry Pie Chuckers who scored the second highest number of points (70.9) in the first two weeks of June to Brian Cowley's team, who notched up an impressive 80.9.

Thursday, 13th July (includes England v South Africa, 1st Test) - Andy Woodhouse becomes the third league leader in as many updates. 11th at the first, 9th at the second and 6th at the third, our man from the Isle Of Wight has risen, like cream, to the top. For consistency, look no further than Brian Cowley, who has been ever present in the top five. That said, after a slow start, Mark Percival can boast top three billing for each of the last three updates. What seems incredibly odd is that, by dividing the Champo season into seven, the next one won't be until the start of September!
