It is time to vote for your NIC Player of the Month for August. Here are the five Yorkshire players up for last month’s accolade…
In six Royal London Cup games (five innings), the opener posted scores of 23, 69 not out 25 and 31.
A consistent run of form for the 25-year-old with an innings that will long be remembered.
That was his 69 in a 10-over win against Derbyshire at Chesterfield, paving the way for the fledgling Vikings to eventually qualify for the knockout stages.
Faced with a testing target of 109 in 60 balls following rain throughout the day at Queen’s Park, he came out and ended home hopes in a flash.
He crashed 50 in only 19 balls, the county’s fastest ever List A fifty, and finished with five fours and four sixes in 32 balls.
The first of three all-rounders in contention for this award.
Hill, 20, has broken through this season to play in all formats for the county.
In six Royal London Cup fixtures in August, he posted scores of 23, 64 and 25, adding 10 wickets with his canny seamers.
His 64 came in the win over Warwickshire at York, while his 10 wickets included a trio of three-wicket hauls.
The first came in that game against the Bears, while his second proved instrumental in dragging the Vikings through to the knockout stages when Glamorgan slipped from 180-1 chasing 231 at Cardiff. His other three-for came in the quarter-final Eliminator defeat against Essex at Chelmsford.
The 19-year-old all-rounder posted scores of 58 not out, 27 and 42 and took four wickets in six Royal London Cup fixtures through August.
His half-century, in a rain-affected defeat against Somerset at Taunton at the start of the month, was his first in first-team colours.
Steeton-born Revis demonstrated significant development as a cricketer following his first-team debut in a Championship game in late 2019 when he opened the batting.
For much of this RL50 campaign, he batted in the middle order, but showed off some very useful seam bowling – an area of his game which has flown under the radar until now.
It hasn’t been the easiest of summers for Jonny Tattersall, but he certainly proved his worth with two innings of substance in the RL50.
Playing as a specialist batsman with Harry Duke behind the stumps, Tattersall posted scores of 70 and 53 in six appearances, batting in only four of them.
His 70 came in the win over Warwickshire at Yorkshire, the top-score in his side’s 320-7.
But his 53 against Glamorgan at Cardiff, in the final group game, was surely a better innings.
He came in with Yorkshire 88-4 and saw them later slip to 132-7. Knockout qualification hopes had been eroded. But he calmly shared 84 for the eighth wicket with Matthew Waite to get Yorkshire to 230 – a winning score.
Another all-rounder with wickets and runs to his name.
Though Waite hasn’t played anywhere near as much first-team cricket as he would have liked in recent years through injury, he was still one of the more experienced heads in the RL50 team.
He took on that responsibility impressively.
In six games, he claimed seven wickets with his seamers, including two two-fors, and added scores of 42 not out and 44 down the order.
The 44 came as Yorkshire fought back to beat Glamorgan at Cardiff and qualify for the knockout stages, while his 42 not out came against Warwickshire at York as he boosted the total to 320-7 by crashing 30 of 32 from the last over of the innings.
