Cricket is a sport that lends itself to numbers, and as all too many could tell you, those numbers can mean the difference between threats of early retirement and a weekend spent sulking, or a few free beers and a spring in the step come the new work week.
So far this season, the Horsham Cricket Association's batsmen have plundered 4,700 runs, with their bowling counterparts claiming 269 wickets.
However, for the association's crueller followers, and often its players themselves, it can be the runs that aren't scored that are more interesting.
To date, there have been 53 ducks in A Grade, with 45 different batsmen forced to make the long walk back to their teammates without troubling the scorer.
Unfortunately for nine of those poor few, they didn't manage to last longer than one ball.
Jung Tigers lead the way with 13 ducks as a club, followed very closely by the winless Horsham Saints, with 12.
The Saints' haul was bolstered by a season-record three golden ducks against Rup-Minyip at the weekend.
The competition's bowlers would happily make it known that it's not them who are propping up the duck tally, as well.
Of the seven unfortunate souls who have made multiple ducks so far this season, two are very tidy openers and one a dynamic batsman to watch for the future.
Remarkably, in a nod to cricket's fickle nature, another also ranks amongst the association's top five run-scorers.
Batsmen and bowlers are one of sport's great odd couples, and nothing excites the latter more than when they score more than those batting above them in the order.
However, never short of an excuse, most batsmen will happily point out that one ball can be their undoing, while their bowling friends have at least 48 balls a game to rectify their mistakes.
Though, rarely has a game not gone beyond 40 overs thanks to an errant loosener, or in the bowler's eyes "a tight wide call".
There have been 394 extras so far this season, equating to roughly an extra 65 overs bowled - though this tally is bumped up by no balls that have been smoked, or wides that have run to the boundary.

Jung Tigers and Noradjuha-Toolondo's opening-round clash drew a season-high 47 extras between the two teams; however first day jitters and City Oval's short straight boundaries played a role.
What's for sure, is that no one will be hoping to add to the tally before the break.
