Afridi emerges the Most Valuable Player

Last updated on: June 23, 2009 16:57 IST

It was always going to be a toss-up between Tillakaratne Dilshan and Shahid Afridi. Dilshan's duck, and another brilliant allround performance by Afridi, tilted the scales in favour of the phenomenally talented player from Pakistan.

The table below ranks the top 100 players in the ICC World Twenty20 2009. The ranking is based on the MVP index (MVPI) which expresses every player's combined batting, bowling and fielding performance in terms of 'runs'.
