Srinivas Bhogle and Purnendu Maji present Rediff.com's Most Valuable Player ratings for the ongoing IPL 8.

David Warner

 

With a MVPI of 619, David Warner is currently the IPL 8’s most successful player.

A B de Villiers (603), after his recent magic at Wankhede stadium, is just behind, and could still be this IPL’s top player if Royal Challengers Bangalore can make it to the semi-finals.

It is, however, more likely that a West Indian cricketer -- either Andre Russell or Dwayne Bravo -- could be the eventual winner, because both Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai Super Kings are likely to play the semi-finals. The Indian Premier League has often offered the best platform to showcase West Indian talent.

Recall that the most valuable player index (MVPI) collapses a player’s batting, bowling and fielding performances into a one-dimensional ‘run equivalent’.

If one also looks at the PVI (player value index in English, and paisa vasool index in Hindi) then Andre Russell -- bought cheap -- is sure to emerge the winner; Russell costs KKR just $158 or Rs 10,000 for every run scored.
