Broad sets England MVP summer best

Stuart Broad's match-winning performance in the fourth Investec Ashes Test earned him the highest FTI Most Valuable Player score of the summer.

The Nottinghamshire seamer produced figures of 11-121 to skittle Australia in both innings at a miserly economy rate of 2.70, landing 51.56 ranking points in the process.

His return saw him become only the second England player to break the 200-point barrier this year following fellow seamer James Anderson.

In doing so, Broad leap-frogged Joe Root and Graeme Swann into second place and is now only 13 points behind Anderson.

Swann earned 28.22 FTI MVP points during the game at the Emirates Durham ICG after contributing four wickets and 43 runs. Ian Bell picked up 24.72 points for his third century of the series.

The England FTI MVP rewards players for every run scored, wicket taken and catch held across all three formats of the game, starting this summer with the Investec Test Series against New Zealand.

Bowlers receive higher marks for good economy rates in the FTI MVPs, bowling maidens and dismissing the top order, while 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.
