Aaron Finch is the gift that keeps on giving. He smashed his second hundred of the T20 Blast on Saturday morning - from only 45 balls - maintaining his spot atop of the tournament’s leading run scorers (478 runs).
Callum Ferguson scored his first ever T20 century for Worcestershire over the weekend, becoming the third Australian to reach triple figures (Finch x2, Christian) in this year’s campaign.
Runs have also followed in the Women’s English T20 competition.
Since the tournament started in late July, each Australian playing has scored a half century.
Most recently, Beth Mooney (Yorkshire) accumulated 69 overnight, while Rachael Haynes scored her second 50 of the week for Loughborough Lightning.
Nicole Bolton put together an important 87 to set Lancashire up for a win over the Western Storm, as Elyse Villani hit a six to win the game with two balls remaining – to finish 61* - in Loughborough’s recent win over the Southern Vipers.
Delissa Kimmince also opened up her campaign for Yorkshire with an unbeaten 55.
The bowlers too have found their stride in the UK.
Timm van der Gugten claimed three and four wicket hauls in his last two games, while fellow Glamorgan bowler Michael Hogan found himself in the wickets with 3/31 against Gloucestershire on the weekend.
Marcus Stoinis (Kent) also recorded his best stats in the tournament with the ball, taking 4/17 from his three overs in Southampton.
Squads have are been announced for the Caribbean Premier League which commences on August 8.
