JORDAN: England Match Winner Flies up MVP Table14-Mar-2014
Chris Jordan’s eye-catching performance in his native Barbados has seen him rocket up England’s FTI Most Valuable Player rankings.
The Sussex star got the tourists’ innings back on track when he blasted 27 runs, including four sixes off the last over, before returning with the ball to take 3-39 from his four overs.
His performance gave England a five run victory and helped them avoid a series whitewash in their final match before next week’s ICC World Twenty20.
Jordan is now fourth in the Twenty20 FTI MVP winter points table after earning 22.37 points, despite having played far fewer games than those around him.
He earned 7.34 batting points, after hitting 16.36 per cent of his team’s total at a strike rate of 3.00, 12.03 bowling points, two for his fielding, and a bonus one for the team’s victory.
The MVP system rewards players for every run scored, wicket taken and catch held across all three formats of the game.
Bowlers receive higher marks for good economy rates, bowling maidens and dismissing the top order, while batsmen are rewarded for high run rates and the percentage of the team’s runs they hit.
Jordan, in only his second Twenty20 international, has now staked a claim to be in the England team that faces New Zealand in Chittagong on 22 March as they look to regain the trophy they won in 2010.
