Kohli jumps to top spot in MVP list

April 02, 2016 15:31 IST

India's T20 World Cup challenge has ended.

But it is likely that Virat Kohli (MVPI of 338) will go on to become the tournament's most valuable player because he enjoys a lead of 109 runs over second-placed Joe Root (229).

In all probability the battle for the second place will be between Root, Andre Russell (221) and Jason Roy (219).

The reason for India's demise becomes clear when you scroll down the MVPI table searching for the second Indian on the list.

MS Dhoni (138) is at #22, and Shikhar Dhawan (37) isn't even in the top 100! The message is clear: even a Virat Kohli, or a Sachin Tendulkar back in 1996, can't win you a cricket world cup. The whole team must fire.
