It wasn't a season to remember for Phoenix who finished bottom of the Premier League, winning just three league games in the process.

There was a change of jockey mid-season too in the captaincy stakes, which led to problems on and off the field with many unhappy at how things had progressed.

There was no shortage of talent at the club, especially with overseas players flocking to the lovely surroundings of Phoenix Park.

Fletcher Coutts was the only senior centurion, and he also hit four 50's as he led the run scoring charts making 642 runs at 35.67.

Brad Kneebone scored five of the 15 half centuries made by the club on his way to 518 runs at 32.38, while Reinhardt Strydom scored three 50's in hitting 414 runs at exactly 23.

Rory Anders showed glimpse of his ability as he made 362 runs at 22.62, while Adam Chester (216 at 16.62), and Richie Lawrence (206 at 22.89) were other players to pass 200 runs.

While the batting more than held their own, the bowling department failed to fire, with only two players passing 20 wickets.

Reinhardt Strydom and Fletcher Coutts both took 24 wickets at averages of 24.00 and 26,25 respectively.

Only two other players reached double figures, with Ben White managing 15 and Rory Anders 10 - both averaging close to 43 apiece.

There's talk of Phoenix moving over the close season to address these bowling deficiencies with the capture of Merrion overseas player Poonish Mehta. His capture would indeed add some much needed potency.

The new structure for league cricket offers Phoenix a lifeline and a chance to start anew in 2019.
