Nottinghamshire’s Samit Patel shortlisted for NatWest PCA Players’ Player of the Year award


Samit Patel’s impressive form for Nottinghamshire this season has seen him shortlisted for the NatWest PCA Players’ Player of the Year award.

The Notts all-rounder is up against Essex bowler Jamie Porter, Glamorgan all-rounder Colin Ingram and Surrey batsman Kumar Sangakkara for the honour, with the winner voted for by current county players.

Whoever takes the title will receive the Reg Hayter Cup at the NatWest PCA Awards which will take place at the Roundhouse in Camden on October 4.

Patel has been a key part of a successful year for Notts as they claimed a white ball trophy double, scoring 539 runs and taking nine wickets in the Royal London One-Day Cup and taking 16 wickets in the T20 Blast. He was second in the PCA MVP in both competitions.

The 32-year-old also made back-to-back centuries in the County Championship in June against Gloucestershire and Leicestershire.

Rival for the trophy Porter is also up for the Young Player of the Year award.
