746 runs @ 39.26

Sibley enjoyed a fine first season back at The Oval following his move from Warwickshire. He played in every match of Surrey’s victorious campaign and was their leading run-scorer, while his unbeaten 140 against Kent at Canterbury anchored a staggering chase of 501.


794 runs @ 52.93

A hamstring injury ruined his May, but Jennings still averaged above 50 across the summer and remains one of the finest opening batters on the domestic circuit. That injury forced him to retire hurt on 189 against Somerset at Taunton in April.

JOSH BOHANNON – Lancashire

1,251 runs @ 59.57

Consistent: Josh Bohannon delivered plenty of runs for Lancashire


You have to go back to 2018 – his debut season – to find the only Championship season in which Bohannon has averaged under 40 with the bat. The England Lions right-hander enjoyed his best year yet in the competition, hitting four hundreds, three in his last five matches.


Nottinghamshire 1,053 runs @ 52.65

Previous years had seen Clarke’s white-ball excellence trump his offerings in redball cricket, but this was the 27-year-old’s best Championship campaign since leaving Worcestershire ahead of the 2019 season. He hit an unbeaten double hundred against Warwickshire at Trent Bridge after Notts were made to follow on, helping save the match while none of his teammates reached fifty.

JAMES REW – Somerset (wk)

1,086 runs @ 57.15, 42 dismissals

Just 19 years old and playing his second season of Championship cricket, Rew showcased his ability to stay in for the long haul, turning seven half-centuries into five tons, one of them into a double against Hampshire at Taunton. No one made more hundreds in Division One this year.

LIAM DAWSON – Hampshire

840 runs @ 40, 49 wickets @ 20

Spin king: Liam Dawson in action


The spin-bowling all-rounder had the best season of his career, hitting three hundreds and taking four five-wicket hauls. Hampshire couldn’t celebrate a first title in 50 years but Dawson still had a say in the title race, hitting 119 as Essex were defeated in the penultimate round of fixtures.


48 wickets @ 21.35, 427 runs @ 26.68

All-rounder: Jordan Clark was a key player for Surrey


An all-round star. Other Surrey quicks came and went but Clark played every single match, finishing as their joint leading wicket-taker with Dan Worrall with 48 scalps. He also hit a crucial ton against Notts after Surrey were reduced to 130-5.


54 wickets @ 19.07

Hannon-Dalby breached the 50-wicket barrier in the Championship for the first time in 2022 and went even better this year, his work in September particularly impressive. Figures of 7-46 against Northamptonshire were followed the next week by a five-for at Lord’s.


57 wickets @ 19.05

Porter clearly relished facing Middlesex, against whom he collected 15 wickets this season, while Hampshire were on the end of a 10-wicket haul at the Ageas Bowl. Sam Cook & Porter remain a formidable and consistent seam duo for Essex, both averaging less than 20 this summer.

BRETT HUTTON – Nottinghamshire

62 wickets @ 21.40

Twelve years on from debuting for Notts, the academy product finally became the main man for his county, with his five-for against Middlesex in the final round of games his sixth of the season.


61 wickets @ 28.95

An absolute giant of the domestic circuit who has now gone past the landmark of 900 first-class wickets. He has taken 427 of them for Essex since joining the club in 2017 and continues to stand as the finest spin bowler in the County Championship.
