Highest Run Scorer in NatWest T20 Blast 2017
Question in detailAdam Lyth: Highest Run Scorer in NatWest T20 Blast 2017
Riding on two back-to-back fifties in the Yorkshire's first two matches, Adam Lyth cements top spot as the highest run scorer in NatWest T20 Blast 2017. 150 runs to his name in two innings so far proclaim his batting might and also the form he is reveling in at present. In a one-sided affair against Nottinghamshire, the Yorkshire's opener cleared his intention of not giving way to any bowling attack in the tournament.
He's been just unstoppable with bat. His brutal batting display (50-ball 80) that powered Yorkshire to 227 in their first game made Nottinghamshire concede the defeat. The left-handed batsman continued to take on bowlers in the chase (166) against Derbyshire, a game that turned out to be a nip-and-tuck affair towards the end. He scored 68 off 54 balls taking his team close to the set target, but dismissal in the 19th over spoiled his brilliant knock. With Lyth's wicket fell Yorkshire's hopes of recording their second consecutive win in the tournament. Yorkshire's opener is looking in good touch with bat and this increases his chances to become the highest run scorer in NatWest T20 Blast 2017.
Embarked on a journey to stardom, Lyth has been on a continual upsurge as Yorkshire's top-order batsman since the last NatWest edition. He spread the magic of his batting scoring 312 in 12 innings at an average of 26 and a strike rate of 152. Having had a successful season last year, Lyth is now looking forward with hopes to emerge as the highest run scorer in NatWest T20 Blast 2017. The tournament is yet to go a long way, and all that Lyth will need to reach the milestone is consistency.
