It would be hard to recall a more one-sided One-Day International series in recent times than the just-concluded one between Zimbabwe and India.

India's players grabbed all the top ranks in the MVPI table, with Jasprit Bumrah (MVPI 287) topping the table ahead of K L Rahul (224).

The MVPI formula picks out batsmen who score a lot of runs at a high strike rate, bowlers who take a lot of wickets at a low economy rate, and fielders who take the most catches or participate in run outs. MVPI expresses a player’s overall batting + bowling + fielding performance in terms of a ‘run equivalent’.

Five of the top six places have been taken by Indian bowlers.

For Zimbabwe only Chamu Chibhabha (70) and Vusi Sibanda (58) offered a semblance of resistance.
