Jimmy Anderson’s 2-51 in the defeat against Sri Lanka was enough to keep him top of the FTI Most Valuable Player Rankings for the fourth game in a row.

The Lancashire bowler first took the lead during the Natwest One Day International (ODI) Series against New Zealand, and maintained his advantage by picking up another 9.49 points at the Oval. However, he is under increasing pressure from Yorkshire youngster, Joe Root, who is now up to second on 93 points following his quick-fire of 68 off 55 balls.

Jonathan Trott is just two points further back after taking his runs total to 302 in five ODI appearances this Summer, and Ravi Bopara has made it into the top ten, after his 33 in 13 balls almost handed victory to the home side.

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, 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 was won by Steven Finn, whose performances across all formats of the game was enough to see off Alastair Cook, and wicket-keeper, Matt Prior.
