On Saturday, April 21, Srinivas Bhogle and Purnendu Maji unveiled the Rediff Most Valuable Player Index for Week 2 of IPL-11.

And what about the Paisa Vasool Index (PVI) that measures how much bang does each player give for the bucks he receives? We compute a player's PVI by dividing the player's total earnings (in Rs or $) so far and dividing it by the 'runs' (MVPI) he has contributed so far.

It is convenient to think of PVI as the amount of money (Rs of $) paid to the player for every 'run' he contributes to the franchise.

And it is probably easier to look at the PVI as $ paid per 'run' because of the fewer digits.

It is a staggering statistic that Chris Gayle charges his franchise just $433 for every 'run' scored.

 

Anyone receiving less than $500 for every 'run' scored offers outstanding value.

Less than $1,000 is excellent value, less than $1,500 is very good value, and less than $2,000 is good value.

The PVI for the best performing players so far:
