Hampshire have moved on from their disappointment at failing to re-sign former Australian batsman Simon Katich as their overseas player, and have instead signed his countryman George Bailey for what they hope will be the majority of the 2013 season.
Ravi Bopara is the winner of this week's award. He was the only man to reach three figures twice last week, with scores of 120 not out and 174 against Gloucestershire and Northamptonshire respectively.
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.
It is Riki Wessels who takes this week's award. The 26 year-old's knock of 199 in the Nottinghamshire's first innings laid the foundations for a seven-wicket victory against Sussex.
Essex have signed discarded Lancashire fast-bowler Sajid Mahmood on a two-year contract. Mahmood was released by Lancashire at the end of the 2012 season after spending the last couple of months on loan at Somerset.
Australian batsman Simon Katich has rejected the offer of a new contract from Hampshire and will instead rejoin Lancashire for the 2013 season. The 37 year-old, who has also played for Durham, Yorkshire and Derbyshire, last played for Lancashire in 2010.
Warwickshire have secured the futures of three of their players. Tim Ambrose has penned a three-year extension, while Ian Westwood and Ateeq Javid have signed on for a further two seasons.
