Jimmy Anderson’s 3-30 in England’s victory against Australia was enough to keep him at the top of the FTI Most Valuable Player (MVP) Rankings.

The Lancastrian added another 12.70 points to his total to maintain a 15-point gap over the chasing pack, led by batsmen Jonathan Trott and Joe Root.

In doing so, he passed Darren Gough’s record to become the country’s leading wicket-taker in One Day Internationals.

Trott struck 43 runs whilst Root managed 12 and picked up the valuable wicket of Aussie number three, Phil Hughes - Both are now tied in second place on 81 points.

The highest scorer in the victory was Ian Bell, who earned 18.48 runs for his 91 runs on his home ground at Edgbaston - he is now seventh in the table.

The FTI MVP rewards players for every run scored, wicket taken and catch held. Bowlers receive higher marks for good economy rates, bowling maidens and 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 and for top order batsmen, in recognition of their greater challenge against the new ball, and for those who hit big hundreds.

The Winter FTI MVP went to Steven Finn after consistent displays across all three formats and, despite coming close, Anderson is yet to win it.
