2015 MCA Pro Rankings Update

The MCA has updated the Pro nine wicket rankings to include the 2014 season. This ranking data is a full career update which means that includes all events starting with the inception of the MCA Nine Wicket Series in 2013. 

The one-year 2014 Pro rankings are available here. The simple ranking system is based on win percentage and average wickets scored per game. The system is an additional tool to be utilized by tournament managers for seeding blocks at MCA nine wicket events. The rankings system is based on games played within a division, so it is possible for a player to carry a ranking in multiple divisions.
