I had my eye on Petro Enright's 5-18 in a losing cause for Namibia Women v Uganda Women. Or failing that, Samit.

Messing about apart, maybe Daryl Mitchell's 139* for Worcs v table topping Notts?

As I'm sure Andy might be thinking, Bairstow would have prob got the nod today.

Edward Moore also caught my eye today for 115 for Warriors v Lions in one of the dozens of South African tournaments that are going on at the moment in various formats.

Bairstow's done himself no harm at all.

no shouts for Paul Coughlin after getting himself a gig with the Notty's? pretty impressive for a player who can only stay fit for a third of every season

I have a soft spot for Coughlin.....although it has somewhat hardened.
