Afridi emerges MVP in tri-series

June 16, 2008 21:07 IST

Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi and India's opener Gautam Gambhir proved to be the two most valuable players in the recently-concluded tri-series in Bangladesh.

Salman Butt, who was adjudged the man of the series, is third on the list.

The most valuable player index rewards batsmen who score a lot of runs with a high strike rate, bowlers who take a lot of wickets at a low economy rate, and fielders who take more catches and participate in the most run out dismissals.

Table -- The most valuable players in the Bangladesh tri-series:
