SIDMOUTH all-rounder Miles Dalton has moved on to an average of 200 in the Sidmouth Indoor Cricket League - an unusual feat considering batsmen have to retire when they reach 25.Dalton's average soared when he registered an unbeaten 68 in Sunday's game against Tipton St John.Dismissals of his team-mates meant he returned to the crease after making his 25 and, after remaining partner Mark Jasper was out for 38, he took his side up to 149-5. Tipton were restricted to 60-4 in reply, Steve Shaw making 34 of them and Jasper taking 3-3 in his three overs.Dalton's astronomic average has occurred because in his five innings he has been dismissed only once for an aggregate of 200 runs.
