Dean Elgar, Marnus Labuschagne and Riki Wessels all managed to record centuries during the most recent round of English County Cricket action.

The most impressive South African abroad, however, has to be Colin Ackermann.

The 28-year-old put in a great all-round display to help Leicestershire draw against Middlesex as he scored 63 and 70 not out, while also recording bowling figures of 2/53 and 1/34.

Elgar scored 103 and 17 playing for Surrey against Somerset in the County Championship Division One. The game ended in a draw. 

Morné Morkel also of Surrey recorded figures of 2/68 during Somerset’s first innings. They ended up not batting for a second innings.

Ryan ten Doeschate and Simon Harmer were in action for Essex, who recorded an eight-wicket victory against Nottinghamshire.

Harmer took 2/20 and 6/60 during the second innings. He also managed 43 runs during his side’s first innings.

Captaining the team, Ten Doeschate – a Dutch international who was born in South Africa, ended with bowling figures of 0/7 and scored a duck.

Playing for Yorkshire against Kent, Duanne Olivier ended with bowling figures of 3/82 and 2/92. Yorkshire went on to win the game by 172 runs.

Heino Kuhn captained Kent and scored 15 during the first innings and went for a duck in the second.
