Afridi emerges MVP in tri-series

Srinivas Bhogle, Purnendu Maji and Soumya Hait | June 16, 2008

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

Salman Butt [Images], 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.
