Prince makes MVP move

Ashwell Prince, 38 today, has surged into the top five of the overall MVP rankings following his double-century in Lancashire’s LV= County Championship Division Two win over Derbyshire at Southport.

The veteran South African’s 349-ball 230, which included 28 fours and two sixes, took his run tally for the season to 875 in all competitions and elevated him to fourth in the standings.

Prince, who has already made two centuries and three fifties in first-class cricket this term, has contributed 22 per cent of Lancashire’s runs this season at a rate of 63 per 100 balls. 

Durham seamer Chris Rushworth continues to sit pretty at the top, 33 points above Middlesex bowling all-rounder James Harris.

Rushworth’s team-mate Paul Collingwood is up to third position after hitting a century in the win over Worcestershire that took Durham top of Division One.

Kent seamer Matt Coles is fifth, one place above Sussex all-rounder Oliver Robinson, who has scored 152 runs and taken 23 wickets.

In the NatWest T20 Blast standings, Essex’s Ryan ten Doeschate is top of the pile, ahead of Gloucestershire’s Tom Smith after the spinner took eight wickets in two South Group matches.
