CW County Player Of The Week - Michael Thornely

Michael Thornely is this week's winner. The 24 year-old hit 227 runs for Leicestershire in their match against Glamorgan at Cardiff, despite only being on trial with the Foxes. He recovered from the disappointment of falling for 97 in the first innings to hit a calm 131 - his maiden first-class century - in the visitors second, as they comfortably escaped with a draw on the final day after surrendering a 287-run first innings deficit.
