Collingwood turns back clock in Royal London Cup — 12/08/14

Paul Collingwood is enjoying one of the best County one-day campaigns of his career and at the time of writing, tops the Royal London Cup FTI MVP. The Durham captain has had to endure long road trips to Taunton, Canterbury, Hove and Cardiff, but has used all his experience to muster 266 runs and seven wickets. Collingwood's best batting effort came at Taunton, where he scored 113 off 92 balls, which he backed with 77 off 65 against Warwickshire and 67 of 57 against the Sussex Sharks. His outstanding bowling performance was achieved in Cardiff with figures of 7.1-3-16-4. Collingwood was the inaugural winner of the overall England MVP back in 2007, when he finished top of both the T20 MVP and the ODI MVP Rankings. He also topped the ODI MVP Rankings in 2009-10 when he scored 712 runs and took 12 wickets.

Meanwhile, in the 2014 overall County and England FTI MVP campaigns, the two front-runners will take some catching. Darren Stevens is the first County player through the 500-point barrier, having scored 1032 runs and taken 66 wickets across all forms. He leads Jeetan Patel by 42 points and also tops the Natwest T20 Blast FTI MVP despite Kent falling at the group stage. Stevens is the third highest points-scorer in MVP history (inception 2007), behind Samit Patel and Peter Trego who lie fourth and seventh respectively in this year's race. 

Jimmy Anderson's 81-point lead in the overall England FTI MVP looks unassailable. England's king of swing has dominated the race from the beginning of the Test series against Sri Lanka. He's taken 33 Test wickets from this Summer's six matches at an average of 21.39 and will expect to increasethat tally at the Kia Oval. Anderson has conceded his runs at 2.62 per over, and 31.59% of his 269 overs have been maidens. Anderson has also scored 120 Test runs, including a career-best of 81 at Trent Bridge. He is ranked third in the ODI FTI MVP Rankings, after taking eight wickets from the five ODIs versus Sri Lanka.

The Formula

The FTI MVP is a cumulative points system that rewards players for every run scored, wicket taken and catch held - and, how well they do it. A player achieves bonus points based in certain criteria. An overview of the formula is set out below:

Batting + Bowling + Fielding + Captaincy + Winning = Total MVP points

Batting: The basis of the batting points take into account runs scored, the rate scored at, and the percentage of the team's total. Batting bonus points are achieved for reaching a century, achieving a benchmark run-rate (varies per tournament, i.e. 1.5 runs per ball in the Twenty20), and scoring over 30% of a team's runs

Bowling: The basis for the bowling points take into account the number of wickets and economy rates. Bowlers achieve higher points for getting out higher order batsmen Bowling bonus points are achieved for achieving a benchmark economy rate (varies per tournament, i.e. fewer than 6 runs per over in Twenty20), taking 5 or more wickets in an innings, and bowling maidens.

Fielding: Points are accumulated for catches, run outs - direct hits, run outs – assists, stumpings, with bonuses for 5 fielding dismissals in an innings.

Captaincy: A captain of a winning side will receive one bonus point

Winning teams:

All members of a winning team receive one bonus point.
