To me, Summer is the sound of willow upon leather, the voice of Brian Johnson and the drumming of the rain.
It's also the clicking of pens and calculators as cricket devotees calculate the averages for their favourite players. Cricket Averages from South Coast Software, though, now does all that for you.
Averages can be generated for the team, the individual or a summary for all team members. The team averages show the number of runs scored and the average runs per wicket for the team and an aggregate for the opponents. An individual's averages show the name and batting bowling and fielding averages. That's just the basics - there are a host of more complex options.
Although the data input menus are a bit confusing the program does what is intended quite well.
Indeed, it's apparently being used by the official Hampshire County CC scorer for their first team statistics!
