County Championship round-up: Simon Kerrigan's left-arm magic helps Lancashire to comprehensive win
Thursday 11 July 2013
Bowler of the day
Lancashire's Simon Kerrigan twirled his left-arm magic to help his county to a comprehensive win over Northamptonshire at the County Ground. The 24-year-old was given the responsibility of becoming Lancashire's No 1 spinner after Gary Keedy's departure for Surrey and it is a mantle he has worn lightly so far this season. His four Northants wickets gave him second-innings figures of 7 for 63 and took him to 32 wickets for the season.
Batsman of the day
Tim Ambrose's England career is a now-fading memory but he still keeps putting in high-class performances behind and in front of the stumps for Warwickshire. As his county faltered in their crucial clash against Middlesex, the 30-year-old hit 47 runs to steer his team to the brink of victory.
And it was many happy returns for Wednesday's Bowler of the Day, Chris Rushworth. The now 27-year-old swing merchant helped mop up Derbyshire's tail and took the two wickets he needed to complete a 10-wicket match haul on his birthday.
