Wayne Madsen’s role in Derbyshire’s unbeaten start to the NatWest T20 Blast has been rewarded with a place in the top 10 of the PCA’s Most Valuable Player rankings for the competition.

Madsen made 37 from 22 balls to help set up victory over defending champions Northamptonshire in Derbyshire’s opener last Friday and followed up with 42 from 28 balls in the win over Yorkshire at Chesterfield.

His efforts in those two matches earned Madsen 31 PCA MVP points and took him to 10th place in the competition’s rankings table, 19 behind Sussex all-rounder Luke Wright, the early pacesetter.

The PCA MVP Rankings system identifies the match-winners and key influencers of matches throughout the domestic season.

The formula takes into account conditions, quality of opposition, captaincy and strike-rates as well as runs scored and wickets taken.

Madsen is 50th in this season’s overall PCA MVP, which covers all competition’s, and is Derbyshire’s highest-ranked player.

In the NatWest T20 Blast rankings, Hardus Viljoen is Derbyshire’s second highest-placed player in 20th spot with 23 points from two matches with Luis Reece two places further back.

Leg-spinner Imran Tahir is in 26th position with Matt Henry and Daryn Smit, 37th and 38th respectively, also in the top 50.
