Joe Clarke’s fine performances in the NatWest T20 Blast this summer have led to him climbing into the top 20 of the Professional Cricketers’ Association’s Most Valuable Player rankings for the short format of the game.
The Worcestershire Rapids batsman will go into tonight’s game away to Durham Jets lying in exactly 20th spot with 90 points at an average of 10.02 points per game.
Twenty-one-year-old Clarke is the Rapids leading run-getter in the competition and has hit 19 sixes so far in 2017.
But the highest placed Rapids player is Mitchell Santner in 13th position with 101 points at an average of 11.17 points per match after his consistent performances with the ball and useful contributions with the bat.
The next best placed Rapids player is all-rounder John Hastings – 41st with 71 points at 7.88 – although he is now returning home to Australia after suffering a foot injury.
He is followed in the rankings by keeper Ben Cox – 53rd with 68 points at 7.51 – and all-rounder Brett D’Oliveira – 57th with 66 points at 7.38.
Leading the way in T20 Blast cricket so far this summer is Derbyshire’s Wayne Madsen – 170 points at 17.02 – followed by Yorkshire’s David Willey – 162 at 18.01.
