Not surprisingly, at the end of the IPL 2021 league phase, the top two places were held by Harshal Patel, the bowler with the Purple Cup, and K L Rahul, the batter with the Orange Cap.

The table below lists players with the highest Most Valuable Player Index (MVPI).

MVPI collapses a player's batting, bowling and fielding performance into a single 'run equivalent'.

The last column also lists the best (lowest) Paisa Vasool Index (PVI), which is obtained by dividing the player's auction price in US$ by the 'runs equivalent' that he has contributed.
