    The contenders

    Steven Mullaney – Nottinghamshire
    Maiden 5-fer v Gloucestershire

    There is not one job Steven Mullaney hasn't done for Nottinghamshire. He's opened the batting and the bowling with his medium pace. He's even played in the middle order and sent down a few off-spinners. But for the first time in his professional career, Mullaney returned five-wickets in an innings to help secure Notts' place at the top of Division Two. His five for 32 accounted for Gloucestershire's middle-order and the final wicket – Matt Taylor LBW – to hand him the maiden haul and seal an innings and 50-run win. 

     Joe Denly - Kent 
    190 runs and 2-37 v Sussex 

    There were three parts to Joe Denly's impressive match against Sussex at Tunbridge Wells, which Kent won by 147 runs. The first came when the hosts, opting to bat first, were 58-3. Up stepped Denly with a brilliant 119 which allowed Kent to post a competitive 369. Taking a lead into the second innings, an enterprising 71 from Denly was followed by two wickets in Sussex's second innings to help dismiss them for 356. 

    Daryl Mitchell – Worcestershire
    161 & 78* v Northamptonshire 

    They say when you are in form, you need to cash in. It is something Dary Mitchell certainly abides by. After scoring 120 in Worcestershire's win over Derbyshire, he made it back-to-back with 161 in the first innings against Northamptonshire. With that knock, Worcestershire established a lead of 196. Then, after yet another disciplined performance with the ball, 148 runs were needed for victory. Cashing in once more, Mitchell got 78 of them, which involved finishing the match with four, four, six and four off the final four balls! 

    Nick Selman – Glamorgan
    116* v Durham

    A staggering final day at Swansea saw Glamorgan come out on top thanks to a mighty fine innings from opener Nick Selman. An attacking declaration from Paul Collingwood, leaving himself eight shy of twin-hundreds in the match, meant Durham had set the hosts 266 for victory. Enter Selman: his remarkable 116 not out off 129 balls, having opened the batting, saw his side home in the gloom, with just three wickets and three balls remaining.
