Shiv Thakor is among a group of fresh faces on course for a place in next year’s North-South Series with only one round of matches remaining in the Royal London One-Day Cup.

The top four England-qualified players in the PCA’s MVP Rankings for the North and South Groups will again earn automatic invitations to the 2018 series, which will be watched closely by the England selectors as they continue their planning for the 2019 World Cup.

Third on the North list is Thakor, the former England Under-19 captain who has contributed consistently with bat and ball for the Falcons this season, including a career-best 130 to lead a county-record run chase against Northants.

He is also the Club’s leading wicket taker in competition with 12 wickets at an average of 24.

Other players pushing for a place in the North side is Keaton Jennings, Jordan Clark and Sam Hain, who currently make up the top four places with Thakor.
