Just two wickets for Jasprit Bumrah, or one more wicket and some runs with the bat for Kagiso Rabada, would HAve been enough to unseat Jofra Archer from the MVPI pedestal.

It didn't happen.

Recall that the Most Valuable Player Index (MVPI) -- which collapses a player's batting, bowling and fielding performance into a 'run equivalent' -- rewards wicket-taking bowlers, with good economy rates, and high-scoring batsmen with the best strike rates.
