MVP: Chris Jordan leaps to top of rankings..!

18-Jun-2013

Sussex’s Chris Jordan is the new leader of FTI Most Valuable Player rankings after helping Sussex remain unbeaten in the LV=County Championship Division One at Arundel.

The all-rounder took 3-94, hit 41 runs, and took two catches to score the 17.13 runs required to take over from Northamptonshire’s Trent Copeland at the head of the table.


Jordan has so far taken 47 wickets in the LV=CC and YB40 and chipped in with 279 runs. He is now one of three players, who are divided by less than a point as the race for the MVP title hots up.

Jordan also heads the top wicket takers in the LV=CC, with 37 wickets, alongside team mate, Steve Magoffin, and Middlesex's Tim Murtagh. Jordan's LV=CC form includes three 5-wicket hauls with his best figures being 6-48 in the victory against Yorkshire, on debut.


The FTI MVPs, which feature a £10,000 purse for the cricketer who scoops the top prize at the end of the season, award points for every run scored, wicket taken and catch held.


Bowlers receive higher marks for good economy rates, bowling maidens and for dismissing the top order, whilst batsmen are rewarded for high run rates and the percentage of the team’s runs they hit.


There are now more points across all formats for those notching 40 and 50 per cent of a team’s total, for top order batsmen, in recognition of their greater challenge against the new ball, and for those who hit big hundreds.


It is also harder to receive a strike rate bonus in YB40 cricket, reflecting an overall increase in scoring rates for this format, and dot balls in FL20 cricket will also become more valuable.
