Coling Ingram - Glamorgan
427-ball 155 not out v Nottinghamshire
The powerful South African batsman had been in terrific form in the One-Day Cup tournament ahead of the recent round of Specsavers County Championship, blasting 564 runs at an average of 70.50 to finish the group stages at the top of the run-scorers chart. But back in red-ball action, Ingram needed to demonstrate his poise and paitence, as he dug in to repel the best bowling attack in Division Two. At the crease for almost 10 hours, Ingram held off an attack consisting of Stuart Broad, Harry Gurney, Luke Fletcher and Samit Patel to draw the match having seen his side reduced to 54-3 in the follow-on.
Joe Leach - Worcestershire
9-32 in win over Derbyshire
Taking up the captaincy in the off-season, Joe Leach has led his Worcestershire side to three wins out of three matches in Division Two, dominating proceedings with the ball in their latest victory over Derbyshire, who they defeated by an innings and 42 runs. Picking up nine wickets in total, Leach decimated the Derbyshire middle order - after good work from Ed Barnard to remove the openers - in their second innings, to bowl them out for 98 inside 30 overs.
Brett D'Oliveria - Worcestershire
150 in win over Derbyshire
After a difficult start to the red-ball season, Brett D'Oliveria reminded all onlookers of his talent with the bat, dispatching the Derbyshire bowlers for 150 in Worcestershire's first innings, as he and Daryl Mitchell put on 243 for the first wicket. It was a monumental start to the first innings and one took the game away from the opposition. His performance was ll the more impressive having failed to score more than nine in his previous four Division Two innings this season.
Luke Wells - Sussex
258 against Durham
Almost outscoring the whole of the Durham first innings by himself, Luke Wells set about giving Sussex a mammoth 381-run lead, on his return to first-class cricket this summer following a knee injury. Three days earlier, Wells was given a rude awakening in his first match in eight months after he was yorked by a 90mph inswinger from the hands of Kagiso Rabada for a golden duck in South Africa's tour match. But here, Wells became a batting Hulk, forcefully sending the Durham bowling to all parts as he made up for lost time and hit his career-best score.
