Kohli is WT20's most valuable player!

April 05, 2016 17:55 IST

Players from England and the West Indies dominate the World T20 MVP rankings, with Joe Root just behind India’s Virat Kohli in second place.

Having failed to make it to the final, it is not surprising that India has only two players in the top 25, with skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni at No 24.

Srinivas Bhogle and Purnendu Maji anaylse the players’ performance in Rediff.com's Most Valuable Players ratings.

India's batting sensation Virat Kohli, named player of the tournament, is also the most valuable player of World T20 2016.

With a fifty and two wickets, England's Joe Root is just behind him.

The most valuable player index (MVPI) picks out batsmen who score a lot of runs, and very quickly; bowlers who take a lot of wickets at a low economy rate; and fielders who takes the most catches or participate in the most run dismissals.

For our calculations of the 2016 World T20, we assumed a team par score of 150, and every wicket worth 15 ‘runs’.

If a batsman scored at a strike rate of over 125, he had bonus ‘runs’ added; penalty ‘runs’ were deducted if the strike rate was below 125. If the bowler conceded less than 30 runs in his 4 overs he got bonus ‘runs’ added; if he conceded more than 30 he had penalty ‘runs’ subtracted.

We don’t think our MVPI formula is the best (what indeed is the ‘best’ formula?), but we’ve published this analysis on Rediff for over a decade now and the index has usually ranked player performance well.
