After a high scoring Royal London Cup campaign it’s no surprise to see four batsmen topping the charts and in the running for Player of the Month.
A maiden List A century capped off a profitable campaign for Emilio Gay with the bat. A highest score of 131 saw him chalk up 332 runs at an average of 41.
After impressing in red ball cricket all summer, McManus showed his class in the shorter form too as he finished with the Steelbacks’ highest average in the competition. The keeper-batsman added 330 runs in 7 innings, including a century and two half centuries, launching 15 sixes in the process.
Another Steelbacks centurion in the campaign, Ricardo Vasconcelos looked back at his fluent best as he passed 100 on two occasions. He finished just ahead of Emilio Gay in the run-scoring charts with 334 runs at 41.
Accepting captaincy duties before the tournament began, the Kiwi led from the front as Northamptonshire’s highest run scorer in the Royal London Cup. His 345 at an average of just shy of 50 included a thumping century brought up with a final ball six against Worcestershire.
