Yuvraj moves up 31 places in MVP list

September 24, 2007 16:08 IST
Pakistan's Shahid Afridi continues to lead the table of the most valuable players (MVP) in the ongoing Twenty20 World Championship; in fact he has established such a big lead that it is hard to see anyone else overtaking him even if he has a poor final against India.

Afridi is up there because he had bagged the most wickets (12; jointly with Stuart Clark) with a decent economy rate and scored his 91 runs at a scorching rate of two runs per ball. He has also participated in two run out dismissals.

Yuvraj Singh's phenomenal 70 against Australia has taken him from the 40th to the 9th place. He should have been in the top three; but he's missing out because he didn't play against South Africa and because India's match against Scotland was washed out.

The 20-20 MVP list after the semi-finals is as follows:

Rank Player Country Runs Balls Bat-pts Bb Rc W Bowl-pts Ct | St Run Outs Field-pts M Total

Runs (scored) | Balls (taken) | Bat-pts: Batting points | | Rc: Runs conceded | Bb: Balls bowled | W: Wickets taken | Bowl-pts: Bowling points | Ct/St: Catches taken / Stumpings | Run outs (participated) | Field-pts: fielding points | M: Matches played | Total (points)  = sum of batting, bowling and fielding points | *Run outs are counted as 1 (wicket) for a direct hit, and 0.5 (wicket) if the fielder is an equal participant in a run out dismissal.

Before Yuvraj Singh played those two stunning knocks there wasn't a single Indian player who really stood out. Even now, R P Singh and M S Dhoni are the only two other Indian players in the top twenty.  This has therefore been a truly remarkable team effort by Dhoni and his boys.
