MVP

The MVP formula is used in County cricket in England, and is a system borrowed and adapted from most American sports. Consequently, Southwold Cricket Club has its very own system, whereby weekly performances are judged on an impartial scale. Here’s how it works:

Batting

Basis: runs scored = 1 point for every 5 runs

Bonuses: scoring 30% of the overall team’s total = 5 points
Reaching a fifty = 5 points
Reaching a century = 10 points
Being not out at the end of a successful run chase = 3 points

Bowling

Basis: wickets taken = 2 points for a wicket

Bonuses: bowling a maiden over = 1 points
Getting out a batsman in the top 5 = 1 point
Taking 5 or more wickets in an innings = 5 points (then 1 more for each subsequent wicket)

Fielding

Catches = 1 point
Direct run outs = 3 points
Assisted run outs = 2 points to each players involved
Stumpings = 2 points

Bonus: being involved in 5 or more dismissals in an innings = 5 points (then 1 more for each subsequent dismissal)

Winning

5 points for all members of a winning side

Captaincy

3 points for captaining a win
