“Shan Masood, who has 713 County Championship runs this season at an average of 118.83, has been nominated for the PCA’s Player of the Month award,” Wisden wrote.
Apart from him, Hampshire’s Keith Barker, Yorkshire’s Harry Brook and Kent’s Ben Compton are also nominated for the award following their brilliant performances.
Masood has been exceptional in the ongoing County Championship. He is currently the leading run-scorer in the competition across its two divisions and his performances have led Derbyshire to the second spot as they look to finish within the first three positions to secure promotion to the first division.
The stylish left-handed opener has scored 713 runs at an average of 118.83. In his 6 innings, Masood has crossed the 50-run mark on 5 occasions including back-to-back double-centuries.
The 32-year-old will be looking to continue his rich vein of form in the rest of the competition and return to the playing XI of the national team. Masood has not represented the national side since Pakistan’s tour of New Zealand in early 2021.
