Anderson tops FTI MVP list

James Anderson’s fine all-round performance in the first Investec Test against India at Trent Bridge has helped him surge to the top of the overall England FTI MVP rankings.

The 31-year-old, who won last year’s award, took four wickets and struck 81 in a Test-record last-wicket stand of 198 with Joe Root.

Anderson replaces Chris Jordan at the top, with the all-rounder missing out on selection at Nottingham.

Root is up to third following his 154 not out in England’s first-innings total of 496.

The Yorkshireman, who hit an unbeaten double century against Sri Lanka at Lord’s earlier this summer, has contributed over 21 per cent of his country’s runs this summer at a strike rate of 55 per 100 balls.
