Bowling Records

The WCCL has kept records of its best bowling performances going right back to it's inception. However, during the time, the number of overs each bowler is allowed to bowl in a match has been reduced from 23, down to 15, then 12, and then in 2016, down to 9. This means the best bowling figures of yesteryear are incomparable to modern bowling returns. Therefore starting with the 2016 season, the historic bowling statistics were reset, so that they only contain returns from when bowlers were allowed a maximum of 9 overs.

The following are the best bowling figures from the league's inception to 2015.
