Player of the Month: July Nominees

Wayne Madsen

Madsen is currently sitting at the top of PCA MVP Rankings for the NatWest T20 Blast and is 14 points clear having scored 355 runs and taken eight wickets up to now in the tournament.

The top-order batsman hit an unbeaten 86 from just 44 balls against Notts Outlaws and has made five scores of 40 or more. Most recently Madsen hit 49 not out in the Falcons’ victory over Leicestershire Foxes and is averaging 71 with the bat.

He is isn’t just shining with the bat but also the ball and the handy off-spinner has an economy of 7.07, the second most economical bowler for Derbyshire.

Luis Reece

Reece has shone with the bat on a number of occasions in the NatWest T20 Blast and is currently ranked 14th in the overall NatWest T20 Blast PCA MVP Rankings.

He has put in match-winning performances with the bat twice in July, hitting 75 not out against Northants Steelbacks and an unbeaten 97 from 55 balls to beat former county Lancashire.

The left-hander has scored 288 runs so far and the top-order batsman is averaging 48 with a strike rate of 139.

Imran Tahir

Derbyshire’s front-line spinner Tahir has certainly impressed with both wickets and his celebrations since arriving at the Club.

Tahir also took seven wickets in the Specsavers County Championship defeat against Durham at Queen’s Park, on debut in early July.
