Vote for August's Player of the Month

Vote for August's Player of the Month

Three players are in the running for 2020's first Player of the Month, sponsored by Hilton Garden Inn

Vote now for your Lancashire Cricket Player of the Month for August, sponsored by Hilton Garden Inn.

Three players are in the running for their performances throughout the month, which included four Bob Willis Trophy fixtures and the start of Vitality Blast.

Hilton Garden Inn are offering a one-night, bed and breakfast stay for one lucky voter drawn at random once the voting closes at midday on Monday 7 September.

The stay is valid until August 2021, subject to availability, excludes major event days and is for a maximum of 2 adults.

See below for the nominees and vote using the poll at the bottom of the page.

Tom Bailey

A modern day stalwart of the Red Rose, Tom Bailey has led a young attack impeccably during the first month of the season.

Very much the senior bowler in the absence of some other key pace bowlers, Bailey has tirelessly bounded in and turned in some impressive numbers.

He has bagged 13 wickets in the Bob Willis Trophy, delivering 112 overs - 40 more than any of his team mates - and going at just two-and-a-half an over. In the win at Durham, he returned highly impressive match figures of 24-12-25-4.

But it's in Vitality Blast where Bailey has had perhaps his biggest impact, taking eight wickets in his first three T20 matches since 2017.

Figures of 5/17 in the washed out match at Leicestershire Foxes were the second best in Lancashire's T20 history and only the third time a Lightning bowler has bagged a five-wicket haul in the format.

Alex Davies

Alex Davies rounded off a fine few weeks with both bat and gloves by striking a match-winning 83 in the televised Vitality Blast match against Derbyshire Falcons at Emerald Headingley.

The 26-year-old made it back-to-back half-centuries to begin the T20 season, which followed on from a fine run of form in the Bob Willis Trophy too.

In all formats, Davies closed out August with four consecutive half-centuries, three of which resulted in century opening stands with Keaton Jennings.

In addition to scoring fifty in the opening Bob Willis Trophy game against Leicestershire, he is the Club's leading First-Class run scorer through four games (251 runs) and was the leading Vitality Blast scorer (147 runs) at the end of August.

Handed back the gloves after relenting them last season through injury, Davies has kept tidily and added a couple of eye-catching grabs, too.

Keaton Jennings

Lancashire Lightning's Vitality Blast campaign started with a bang up in the North East and it was a stellar start for Keaton Jennings on his return to former Club, Durham.

Brought in at the top of the order with Liam Livingstone absent, Jennings thrashed his maiden T20 century in stylish fashion to set the Lightning on their way.

Coming off 63 balls with 10x4s and 3x6s, his knock of 108 was the highest in Lancashire's T20 history, overtaking Alviro Petersen's 103 not out vs Leicestershire in 2016.

The opening stand with Davies, worth 170, was the highest in Lancashire's history for any partnership, and he backed it up with 29 from 22 balls in the match against Derbyshire.

Alongside Davies, the pair recorded three straight century opening partnerships, with the first two coming in Bob Willis Trophy matches against Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire.
