With a third of the season gone in the All-Rounder Cricket Bradford Premier League, Alan Birkinshaw looks at how the teams have been performing.

Championship One

1 Keighley 103pts

The 2018 Championship Two winners have started well with five wins and they have achieved that success without their experienced batsman Richard Gould who has not played so far this season. The youthful outfit have produced some fine performances. Overseas player Alex Antoine has proved a good signing with 133 runs and 16 wickets.

Most runs: Louis Horsfield 186 Alex Antoine 16 wickets and scored 133

2 Baildon 100pts

Australian Blair Oakley and Simon Bailey, above, have been in outstanding form with bat and ball for revitalised Baildon. Oakley has scored 260 runs and taken 16 wickets while Bailey has notched 195 runs and picked up 14 wickets. The pair have been backed up with the bat by Jack Hainworth and in the bowling department by left-arm spinner Mushtaq Ahmed who now has 996 Bradford League wickets.

Most runs: Blair Oakley 230, Simon Bailey 195

Most wickets: Blair Oakley 16, Simon Bailey 14

3 East Bierley 90pts

After a slow start East Bierley have romped up the table following the arrival of overseas player Ompal Boken and the signing of experienced run getter Gulsheraz Ahmed. Boken has made his presence felt with bat and ball while Ahmed confirmed his standing as one of the league's most-prolific runscorers with 178 runs in two innings following his move from Undercliffe. Current form suggest they will be pushing hard for an immediate return to the Premier Division.

Most runs: Ompal Boken 250, Gulsheraz Ahmed 78

Most wickets: Tawkal Zadran 15, Ompal Boken 10

4 Bankfoot 88pts

Skipper James Lee is the outstanding all-rounder in the division and is key to his team's success. He has made 311 runs at the top of the order and picked up 15 wickets with the ball. Experienced spinner Andrew Stothart has also impressed in the first part of the season. Consistency will be key if Bankfoot are to build on a promising start.

Most runs: James Lee 311

Most wickets: Andrew Stothart 16, James Lee 15

5 Morley 85 pts

Morley's progress has been dogged by inconsistency. This is reflected most in their batting where openers James McNichol and Matt Baxter have been the best performers. The bowling has held the key to Morley's three wins - two of them have been by 10 wickets - with paceman Matthew Dowse 17 wickets and new Sri Lankan spinner Akash Senerathna 15, leading the way. The Scatcherd Lane side will be hoping that their shock Priestley Cup win over Bradford & Bingley will give them a lift for a promotion push.

Most runs: James McNichol 203, Matt Baxter 154

Most wickets: Matthew Dowse 17, Akash Senerathna 15

6 Pudsey Congs 77pts

Yasir Ali has proved a great addition with 246 runs and 17 wickets since his transfer from Scholes. Skipper James Ford will be looking for his side to kick on and he will be extremely pleased with the form of young spinner Sam Wisniewski who has 15 wickets at 13.60.

Most runs: Yasir Ali 246, James Ford 138

Most wickets: Yasir Ali 17, Sam Wasniewski 15

7 Batley 76pts

Batley occupy a comfortable mid-table position and are handily placed to put pressure on those above them if they can put together a winning run. Sami Ullah has proved to be a consistent runscorer with 255 so far but the over-dependence on Muhammad Shahnawaz in the bowling department is something Batley need to address.

Most runs: Sami Ullah 255, Owaise Hussain 151

Most wickets: Muhammad Shahnawaz 20

8 Gomersal 63pts

Gomersal have only recorded two wins so far and it is their lack of strong support for skipper Richard Wear with the ball which has hampered them to date. The batting has been good with new signing Callum Flynn leading the way with 250 runs. Gomersal can climb the table if their bowlers can make a bigger impact.

Most runs: Callum Flynn 250, Jonathan Boynton 174

Most wickets: Richard Wear 20

9 Hartshead Moor 60pts

Skipper Adam Greenwood has been his side's most consistent batsman with 253 runs, but Mohammad Khan is the only other batsman to pass 100 runs for the season. Overseas player Ali Shan has struggled in his second season with just 95 runs. The lack of runs from the batsmen has made things tough for Hartshead Moor. There is a plenty of experience in their line-up and they will be hoping it will be key to pulling them away from the lower reaches.

Most runs: Adam Greenwood 253

Most wickets: Iain Wardlaw 14

10 Ossett 59pts

Ossett are another side who have been short on runs. Jack McGahan 140 and Matthew Varley 124 are the only batsmen to pass 100 runs. Skipper Dan Busfield is his team’s top wicket-taker but he will be aware that his team have to pick up their game if they are to stay away from the relegation positions.

Most runs: Jack McGahan 140, Matthew Varley 124

Most wickets: Dan Busfield 13

11 Wakefield St Michael's 55pts

St Michael's have found the going tough since winning promotion, but they have shown signs of finding their feet in recent weeks. Mitchell Forsyth 178, Ayaz Seedat 158 and Mark Atkinson 136. They are the batsmen St Michael’s will be counting on as they look for the wins they need to climb out of the bottom two. Olliver Lightfoot has been their best bowler.

Most runs: Mitchel Forsyth 178

Most wickets: Oliver Lightfoot 11

12 Scholes 37pts

These are tough times for Scholes as they battled under their experienced captain Craig Wood to try and stave off a second relegation. Without a win so far, Scholes are 18 points adrift of Wakefield St Michael's and 22 from safety. Wood's side have been encouraged by the form of teenaged spinner Jude Roberts who has two five-wicket hauls to his name.

Most runs: Craig Wood 140, Shahid Rehman 129S, Saif Tahir 123.

Most wickets: Jude Roberts 17.
