How do you record cricket scores? Can't Post or Reply Privately

This is one for the stattos. Whereas in most sports.you can list the home team first and the away team second or vice versa - whatever suits, that doesn't work so well in cricket where it makes more sense to show teams in the order in which they bat.

So for those of you who record or report cricket scores, what's your protocol? Do you just do the full length option of stating the fixture and then stating the score, e.g. Middlesex vs Essex: Essex 125-9 Middlesex 130-6? Or do you indicate the home team with "(h)" or some such suffix? Or do you show the home team first and indicated who batted first, or some other option?

My Excel workbook layout (left to right) is: season, date, venue, match (teams, overs, start time), competition, team batting first (with leading run makers and wicket takers), team batting second (ditto), result, points, attendance, programme (yes/no and pagination), notes (mini match report). An asterisk denotes which team won the toss.

I just record basic info and my Excel columns aren't much different for cricket and football. I omit the crowd column for cricket as they aren't announced much:

Date, Home team, Away Team, Competition, Home Score, Away Score, Crowd, Notes, Venue

For one day games I record the final score and overs for each side e.g 150/9 (20). For first class games just the final scores e.g. 250+300/9d as well as which day I went.

Most of the time details like the match result and who batted first are logical from the scores but if the game was close or a side followed on or the D/L method was involved I'll make a note



Just because you're paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not out to get you.
