Trott cranks up MVP pressure

Jonathan Trott has climbed two places in the FTI Most Valuable Player rankings after his composed 82 not out took England into the final of the Champions Trophy.

The Warwickshire star, who is now second in the table, earned 21.78 points after scoring at just under a run a ball to take his total to 392 runs for the summer.

James Anderson remains top of the rankings after another disciplined display saw him claim 2-14 from his eight overs, including Colin Ingram in the first of the day.

In doing so the Lancastrian maintained his record of dismissing at least one of the opening batsmen in all but one one-day international this summer, as well as England's opening Test match against New Zealand.

Young Yorkshireman Joe Root is now third on 109 points, with skipper Alastair Cook - five further back - the only other player to have reached triple figures. James Tredwell earned 15.23 points after taking 3-19 at an economy rate of 2.71.
