The PCA’s Most Valuable Player Rankings have decided the teams of the month in domestic men’s and women’s cricket for the month of July.

Using the MVP’s unique algorithm, both elevens have been selected by picking out the game’s top performers across every single domestic fixture in the month.

The PCA’s MVP system, powered by Argentex, works by comparing a player’s accomplishments against the expected performance for that game. Runs and wickets achieved at each ground are also considered and compared to the average. Enabling players to score or lose MVP points on every ball through CricViz’s extensive historical database, the rankings is a true reflection of performance.

The teams have been selected to create a well-balanced side, so that it’s not just the best 11 cricketers according to MVP points. This means players such as Alex Lees are unfortunate to miss out due to the fantastic form of Luis Reece and Rob Yates at the top of the order.

In the men’s game, the month saw the culmination of the Vitality Blast alongside two rounds of the LV= Insurance County Championship. Somerset all-rounder Matt Henry impressed in both formats earning 135.75 points after taking 14 wickets at an average of 13.5 in First-Class cricket, whilst helping Somerset win the Vitality Blast with 10 T20 wickets in the month including 4-24 in the final. The New Zealander makes the side for the second month in succession.

Essex all-rounder Paul Walter also impressed with 121.62 MVP points in July taking 14 wickets across both disciplines, including 3-29 in the final of the Blast. Essex spinner Simon Harmer makes the team for a third time this season having also been selected in April and June.

In the women’s game, July saw the continuation of the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy. For the third month in a row, Southern Vipers skipper Georgia Adams makes the team of the month and captains on this occasion having amassed an impressive 61.41 MVP points after scoring 155 runs and taking seven wickets.

Lauren Winfield-Hill also had a good July scoring 241 runs at a brilliant average of 60.3 earning her 45.03 MVP points. The Northern Diamonds opener scored the most batting points in the month with a total of 39.03. Jodie Grewcock had a good month with bat and ball scoring 78 runs and taking seven wickets earning her 49.91 MVP points in July.
