2015 MCA Inaugural Silver Rankings

The MCA has updated the overall nine-wicket rankings to include the 2014 season. That update includes the first rankings for the Silver Division players and is based on all events from the 2014 season.

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.
