India have so far played 18 ODI games in the 2019-2020 season, and it isn't a surprise that Rohit Sharma, after that sterling World Cup performance, remains India's MVP.

Mohammed Shami has climbed to fourth place with an astonishing number (30) of wickets, although his higher economy rate somewhat diminishes his MVPI.

The wrist spinners aren't weaving the old magic, and Ravindra Jadeja is doing what it takes to cut down the KulCha effect.

Shreyas Iyer has begun the climb upwards that should see him consistently in the top five list for the next few seasons.
