There was so much rain around today but there was one stand out that took it like a Duckett to water.

Ben Duckett got 193 for Northants against Sussex.

Patrick Matautaava was the main man today as he combined both bat and ball to help Vanuatu shock Germany.

He combined his 139 with the batt with 2-33 with the ball.

Absolute scenes here as we have our first back to back winner.

Patrick Matautaava got 83 and 2-34 as Vanuatu continue to defy the Associate rule book by beating Italy.

Got to be Stokes, surely. As good a spell of bowling as you'll ever find pretty much anywhere

Six wickets and stopped the bleeding with the bat. Caught one of his wickets himself. What more must Ben do to get POTD?

Hats off to young Patrick though. Not even Samit has claimed back to back POTDs.

Guys

I'm taking break from this. Anyone want to take over?

If not can be an on off thing.

Cheers
