VOTE: June's Player of the Month, sponsored by Thomas Cook Sport
Voting is now open for Lancashire's June Player of the Month, sponsored by our partners Thomas Cook Sport.
Dane Vilas has continued his excellent start to his Lancashire career with another fine month which includes his first red ball century, which turned into a career-best of 244 in last month’s Specsavers County Championship victory over Hampshire at Emirates Old Trafford.
The 32 year-old has now scored 558 runs this summer in the Specsavers County Championship at an average of over 50.
McLaren has been nominated for a third month in succession after an impressive June with both bat and ball in the County Championship.
The South African all-rounder hit his first century for the Club in Lancashire’s victory over Hampshire at Emirates Old Trafford but has continued to contribute with the ball. He is Lancashire’s leading wicket taker in the Championship with 25 wickets at an average of 26, whilst he’s also scored 410 runs at an average of 41.
Alex Davies continues to have a very impressive season for Lancashire and the wicket keeper batsman hit his third century of the summer against Hampshire in June as the Red Rose won their third Championship fixture in 2017.
Davies has now played in eight Championship fixtures and has scored 597 runs at an average of just under 50.
It’s not only his batting that has impressed. His wicket keeping has been excellent this summer. In Lancashire’s win against Middlesex, Davies took a career-best ten dismissals (nine catches and one stumping) which was Lancashire’s second best behind 11 taken by Warren Hegg.
Before the start of the 2017 season, Stephen Parry had only played eight First Class matches and none since 2014. This summer, he has already played in eight red ball games and has formed a vital part of Lancashire’s Specsavers County Championship side.
He is Lancashire’s second leading wicket taker this summer with 18 wickets at an average of just of 27. Parry had another impressive month in June and was instrumental in Lancashire’s eight wicket win over Middlesex at Southport as he took 5/45 in the second innings. That was his first ever Championship five wicket haul too.
