Keogh enjoyed a productive month with both bat and ball in July, capped off by his first-team captaincy debut in the National Counties fixture against Bedfordshire. He bowled Northamptonshire to a famous victory at Canterbury when he claimed a second first-class five wicket haul.
Extending his lead at the top of Northamptonshire’s first-class run scorers this season, Procter again showed his importance with the bat in July. He added vital lower order runs to setup the victory charge at Kent and passed 50 for the sixth time this season to setup a strong first innings lead over Gloucestershire. Just a handful of batsmen have scored more than Procter in Division One so far this year.
Originally signing on for two games before extending for a further two, Ryan Rickelton was an absolute run machine for Northamptonshire. The South African plundered 539 runs in just 8 innings as he posted 4 half centuries and 2 centuries. His brutal 68 in just 47 balls was the catalyst for the runchase at Cheltenham and his 158 run partnership with Jimmy Neesham was vital against Kent.
White flourished in July as he consistently delivered impressive spells with the ball. He claimed a maiden first-class five wicket haul against Lancashire, destroying the visitors top order to post figures of 5 for 14 from 13 overs. White has comfortably the best bowling average for any Northamptonshire bowler in the County Championship.
