Leading Australian performances

Quick hits

  • Peter Siddle has taken 32 wickets in his last five County matches
  • Fawad Ahmed has taken 10 CPL wickets (fifth most in the competition)

Peter Siddle is in some form.

With the red ball in hand, the Victorian quick has taken 32 wickets in his last five County Championship matches for Essex.

In that time, he’s averaged 13.96 which has included three five-wicket and two four-wicket hauls. The fast bowler may have thrown himself into contention for Australia's series in the UAE, or tours beyond looking ahead to next year’s Ashes.

England’s T20 competitions are in their final stages and it’s no surprise that Aaron Finch finished the Vitality Blast home and away season as leading run scorer. The world’s most in-form batsman belted 589 runs at 147.25, including two centuries, in between a record breaking 172 (76) for Australia in Zimbabwe.

The Kia Superleague wrapped up a few weeks ago with Elyse Villani and Rachael Haynes' Loughborough Lightning missing out in the final. 

Haynes however had a terrific tournament with 324 runs at 46.28.

Lancashire’s Nicole Bolton (274 runs) and Yorkshire’s Beth Mooney (267 runs) also did well with the bat, finishing inside the competition’s top ten run scorers.

Over in the Caribbean, Tom Cooper and Ben Cutting's St Kitts sit atop of the Premier League table.

Fawad Ahmed and Chris Lynn's Trinidad Knight Riders are next best placed, with the former leading the charge for the Aussies with the ball.

The spinner has taken 10 wickets, the fifth most in this year's CPL. Adam Zampa and Cutting closely follow with nine each.

Dave Warner (St Lucia) is the best places Aussie with the bat with 220 runs at 31.42.
