Stevens returns to the top of mvp rankings

Darren Stevens leapt to the top of the Rankings this week after recording his fourth five-wicket return of the season against his former side Leicestershire at Grace Road. Stevens played 81 first-class matches for Leicestershire between 1997 and 2004 but was only used sporadically as a bowler taking six wickets at an average of 68.83. For Kent he has taken 230 wickets at an average of 28.48 and this season his bowling has been his stronger suit having taken 46 wickets across both forms, 34 in the LV County Championship (LV=CC).

He has scored 806 runs, 553 in the LV=CC (where he is ranked fourth) and 253 in the Natwest t20 Blast (ranked third). Stevens is the third-highest points-scorer since the Rankings began back in 2007 behind Samit Patel and Peter Trego and his top-ranking this year is even more remarkable given he loses 20% of his LV=CC points for playing in division two. None of the seven previous winners of the overall FTI MVP (listed below) have come from the lower division.

Glamorgan’s Jim Allenby leads the Natwest t20 Blast FTI MVP and is up to fourth overall after smashing 105 off just 63 balls against Middlesex at Richmond. Allenby, Glamorgan’s one-day captain, has lead from the front in the t20 Blast contributing 31.79% of his team’s runs at a strike rate of 143 runs per 100 balls. He has been remarkably consistent compiling 439 runs with the aforementioned hundred, 96 off 59 balls versus Somerset and three other fifties. He has never failed to reach double-figures with a lowest score of 15.

Jason Roy is a new entry into the top ten after hitting a rich vein of form in both formats of the game. The Surrey batsman is second in the Natwest t20 Blast FTI MVP with 392 runs at a rate of 146 runs per 100 balls. He has contributed 31.82% of Surrey’s runs scoring five quick-fire fifties from eight knocks. Like Allenby he has yet to fail, with a lowest score of 15. But Roy has also been racking up points of late in the LV=CC FTI MVP. His last five innings read: 121 off 71 against Gloucestershire (a match where he also took 3-9 off four overs), 5, 76 off 84 versus Leicestershire, 114 off 114 against Hampshire and 70 of 70 in this week’s victory over Glamorgan at Colwyn Bay. He’s now scored 656 LV=CC runs at 79 runs per 100 balls.
