    Dane Vilas' stunning innings of 244 secured him 46% of the votes to be crowned Division One Player of the Week

    Dane Vilas' stunning innings of 244 secured him 46% of the votes to be crowned Division One Player of the Week

    The Contenders:

    Sam Robson - Middlesex
    159 vs Yorkshire
    

    Sam Robson's fine 159 helped guide Middlesex to their first Championship win of the season. His 187-run partnership with fellow centurion Paul Stirling set up a big first innings total for the home side as they went on to win by an innings and 64 runs.

    Dane Vilas - Lancashire
    244 vs Hampshire

    Dane Vilas was in imperious form with the bat as he racked up a career high and best ever score by a Lancashire number six when he was eventually out for 244. His innings included 25 fours & 4 sixes! Vilas' mammoth innings allowed the bowlers to finish the job for Lancashire who rise to second in the table.

    Simon Harmer - Essex
    6/92 & 8/36 vs Warwickshire

    Simon Harmer's career-best haul of 14/128 led Essex to a convincing win over Warwickshire to cement their place at the top of Division One. Harmer was virtually unplayable on the final day as he claimed the most wickets in a match by any Championship bowler since 2014.

    Ravi Bopara - Essex
    192 vs Warwickshire

    Ravi Bopara hit his first Championship hundred since July 2014 but it was definitely worth the wait! Bopara hit 16 fours & 3 sixes on his way to a magnificent 192. He shared a monster partnership of 229 with James Foster (121) as Essex racked up a mammoth 541/9d. Bopara's hundred contributed to another big win for Essex who sit top of Division One.
