COLIN ACKERMANN LEADS THE SACA MVP
At the start of CSA’s Momentum One Day Cup domestic competition on Friday 17th February, it is Colin Ackermann of the Warriors who is leading the overall SACA Domestic MVP Rankings on 328.424 points. He is followed closely by newly capped Proteas bowler Duanne Olivier of the VKB Knights on 327.582 points.
The SACA Domestic MVP Rankings list the top performing franchise players competing in CSA’s domestic competitions. Players earn points, based on an internationally recognised formula used by several players associations around the world, for batting, bowling, fielding and for contribution to matches won by their team. Points are weighted across the different formats to ensure that critical performances in each match earn the player the appropriate number of points.
The overall MVP Rankings combine a players’ performance in all three domestic competitions and are an indicator of consistency of performance through the season. Performances in a particular competition are also recognised in the SACA MVP Rankings relating to each of the Sunfoil Series (4 days), Momentum One-Day Cup (50 overs) and CSA T20 Challenge (20 overs) competitions.
“We are about two thirds of the way through the season and entering the final domestic competition’’, said Tony Irish, SACA’s Chief Executive. “It’s a very close race right now between Colin and Duanne, but there are a few other very experienced guys not too far behind. As always it’s interesting to see how the SACA MVP Rankings correlates with call up to the Proteas squad. I think it’s a very good indicator for the selectors of who is performing day in and day out in franchise cricket”.
