Srinivas Bhogle and Purnendu Maji identify Rediff.com's Most Valuable Players in IPL 11, after Week 4.
Week 4, the MVP in IPL 11 is Rishabh Pant.
He's up there because he has scored 375 runs at a blazing strike rate of 180.
And being a wicket-keeper, he also earned more points for catches and stumpings.
The Most Valuable Player Index (MVPI) collapses a player's batting, bowling and fielding performance into a single 'run equivalent'.
All the prolific batsmen are up there: Shane Watson (Rank 2, MVPI 460), Ambati Rayadu (4, 447), K L Rahul (6, 384) and Virat Kohli (8, 378).
It is a special joy to see the amazing warrior Mahendra Singh Dhoni (3, 451) up there after a few less productive IPL years.
And all-rounders -- with two avenues to contribute -- are often a fixture in the top 10.
There's Sunil Narine (5, 412) and there's Krunal Pandya (8, 375) after the amazing ease with which he took the Mumbai Indians to victory on Friday night.
