Vote for your July DeVines Player of the Month


You can now vote for your DeVines Player of the Month for July with five contenders nominated for the award. Essex rose to the summit of the Specsavers County Championship table at the start of the month, before getting stuck into a rigorous Vitality Blast schedule.
Nick Browne:
Nick Browne demonstrated his skill and patience at the top of the order in the first game of the month against a strong Nottinghamshire attack at Trent Bridge. Tasked with establishing a lead after the bowlers had removed the home team for just 213, Nick alongside Ravi did just that as the opener scored 163 in a mammoth total of 519/9 declared, that set up Essex nicely to win by an innings and 123 runs. Browne’s total came from 370 balls and included 27 boundaries.
Cameron Delport:
A phenomenal performance against Surrey at the Cloudfm County Ground was always going to secure the South African opener a spot in this line-up. On an evening where the Eagles scored 226 runs from just 15 overs, Delport reached his century from just 38 balls as no Surrey bowler was safe from his deluge of boundaries that included 14 maximums.
Ryan ten Doeschate:
The Club Captain scored an important 70* during the first innings of the County Championship fixture against Yorkshire, which set the tone for the remainder of the game as Essex went on to win by 8 wickets. In the Vitality Blast, he hit a quickfire 74* from 46 balls against Middlesex at Lord’s and followed that up with 58* against Kent Spitfires at The Spitfire Ground. Now batting at four for the Eagles, he’ll be looking to score plenty more runs before the competition reaches it conclusion.
Simon Harmer:
Before going into his new role as T20 captain, Simon Harmer was busy taking important wickets that helped see the Club sit top of the County Championship table. 6 wickets in the second innings against Warwickshire were particularly pertinent as the South African spun through the defences of the Warwickshire line-up. In the Vitality Blast, Harmer has also been successful taking 4 wickets so far in the tournament.
Matt Quinn:
Our leading wicket-taker in the Vitality Blast, Matt Quinn has been dangerous throughout the innings taking wickets upfront and at the death. Quinn currently has an impressive tally of 6 wickets and will hope to take more as the tournament continues.

Voting closes at 5PM on Wednesday 14 August with the presentation taking place on Friday 16 August during the Vitality Blast fixture with Glamorgan at The Cloudfm County Ground.
