Ottis Gibson has hailed the performances of Yorkshire stars Adam Lyth, Dawid Malan and Jordan Thompson during the ongoing Hundred.
But the county’s coach has one wish for those players involved in the thick end of the competition as it draws to a close this weekend – “Please don’t get injured!”
Gibson has been working as an assistant with the Headingley based Northern Superchargers, who were eliminated yesterday with four wins and four defeats.
For them, Lyth was outstanding with 299 runs from eight innings, the third highest tally in the men’s competition so far.
Leading the way is Malan with 358 runs, the England left-hander helping the Trent Rockets into Saturday evening’s final at Lord’s.
Hoping to join them at the Home of Cricket are the London Spirit, who have been led brilliantly with the ball by Thompson with 14 wickets – the joint best tally in the competition.
