The vote will close on 5pm on Friday 29th September.

The stand-out performers:

Gary Ballance

In his first year as Club Captain, Gary Ballance has scored runs for fun in the Specsavers County Championship. His tally of 827 Championship runs with three hundreds and four fifties to date, along with 483 runs in nine Royal London One-day Cup games, represents a phenomenal return which also saw him earn a recall to the England Test team.

Ben Coad

It’s been a breakthrough year for 23-year-old Ben Coad who has taken 42 wickets in the Specsavers County Championship at an average of 18.19. The Harrogate-born seamer has made a dramatic impact on First-Class cricket this summer with four five-wicket hauls, including a career best 6-25 against Lancashire at Headingley.

Jack Leaning

A Roses century away at Emirates Old Trafford early in the season, along with two half-centuries in the Championship resemble a decent return for Jack Leaning. The batsman also contributed 161 runs at a strike-rate of 150.47 in the NatWest T20 Blast and eight catches, including this sensational catch.

Adam Lyth

The Whitby-born opener has had yet another phenomenal year in the NatWest T20 Blast scoring 535 runs in 12 games at a strike-rate of 164.62. Lyth scored four fifties and one phenomenal hundred, a NatWest T20 Blast record 161 in the final group game against Northants. The batsman has also scored one hundred and one fifty in the Championship.

Azeem Rafiq

Yorkshire Vikings joint leading wicket-taker in the NatWest T20 Blast, Azeem Rafiq claimed 17 wickets with a best of 5-19 and made a number of outstanding contributions throughout the competitions.
