Scott Aspinall Top LMS in batting rankings

 
Forget England opener Alastair Cook's 294 runs of "remorseless accumulation" against India;  forget even the great Sachin Tendulkar's bid for 100 test hundreds.
 
Currently, the world's number one batsman is a 34-year-old from Wanganui.
 
Don't believe it? Well, check the statistics ... there sitting on top of the "Global Batting Rankings" with 1593.430 points is Scott Aspinall, former student at St Augustine's College in Wanganui, now part of Cullinane.
 
Aspinall, who has lived in London for the past four years, is the top willow-wielder in Last Man Stands, a form of cricket that mixes a social game with an online community.
 

An account manager for a commercial insurance company, Aspinall, who played representative cricket in Wanganui in his earlier years, is one of 20,000 players worldwide in what is claimed to be "the widest reaching amateur cricket league in the world".
