Byas had a mediocre season with the bat scoring only 596 runs in first class cricket at an average of nearly 25. In addition he struggled in the one-day format scoring 384 runs at just under an average of 20. He still lead the side well but it was a season which most of the County's batsman, like Byas, will want to improve in 2001.
