Graeme Swann takes an early lead in the FTI MVP Winter Rankings-03/10/12
England might have bowed out of the World T20 at the Super 8 stage, but the race for the Winter FTI MVP has begun, and will continue until
after England’s tour to New Zealand next year. Graeme Swann is the early leader,
having enjoyed a fruitful World T20 that yielded him 34 runs and 7 wickets.
Swann extracted sharp turns from the surfaces in Colombo and Pallekele, making
him both dangerous and difficult to score against. His economy rate across the
tournament was 6.16 runs per over, and he had the knack of turning the game
England’s way with key wickets.
Steven Finn was England’s leading wicket-taker in the tournament, with 8 victims; which sees him one point behind Swann in second. His economy rate was an impressive 6.10 runs per over, especially impressive considering he bowls in the power-play overs. His best return of 4-0-16-3 came against New Zealand. Finn topped the summer t20 FTI MVP and is becoming widely regarded as England’s spearhead in white-ball cricket.
Luke Wright was England’s leading batsman in the World T20 with 193 runs at a strike rate of 169 runs per 100 balls. The Sussex Shark, who has also played in the IPL and the Big Bash, smashed 14 fours and 13 sixes – a total of 134 runs in boundaries – most of which came in 2 innings; 99 off 55 against Afghanistan, and 76 off 43 against New Zealand. Wright contributed 26.12% of England’s tournament runs.
