As IPL-11 takes a brief pause, this is a good time to speculate who might be the MVP this time.

Rishabh Pant of the Delhi Daredevils is still up there, and his only potential challenger is Kane Williamson, the Sunrisers Hyderabad captain -- especially if his team reaches the final.

The table below lists the 50 most valuable IPL-11 players and uses it to calculate how many US$ the franchise pays the player for every 'run' scored.

The 'run' is more accurately a run equivalent that collapses a player's batting, bowling and fielding performance into a single index: The Most Valuable Player Index.
