Shubman Gill And Rashid Khan In Race For MVP –

Srinivas Bhogle and Purnendu Maji present‘s Most Valuable Player Index of IPL 2023 after the league stage.
Shubman Gill

Faf du Plessis currently tops the MVP table with a MVPI of 766, but it won’t be for too long because RCB was eliminated Sunday night. Yashasvi Jaiswal (MVPI of 752) too is about to relinquish his second place since RR too has been eliminated.
GT stars Shubman Gill (721) and Rashid Khan (712), currently at #3 and #4, respectively, look most likely to clinch the top spot (with Rashid Khan enjoying a slight advantage if he’s required to bat).
The dark horse could be Suryakumar Yadav, currently #6, with an MVPI of 644. If MI win the title, then SKY could well become MVP because he’ll have the opportunity to play three more innings.
Table 1 lists the top 50 players with the highest MVPI, and their corresponding PVI (paisa vasool index). PVI tells you how many US dollars the franchise pays the player for every ‘run equivalent’ that he contributes. The lower a player’s PVI, the greater the value that he offers.

The best steals this year have been Jaiswal (RR; PVI of 665), Devon Conway (CSK; 223), Rinku Singh (KKR; 132), Piyush Chawla (MI; 139), Mohit Sharma (GT; 162), Ajinkya Rahane (CSK; 164), Prabhsimran Singh (PBKS; 205), Kyle Mayers (LSG; 172), Jitesh Sharma (PBKS: 71); Tushar Deshpande (CSK; 172) and Matheesha Pathirani (CSK; 173).
If 10 of the top 50 players have a PVI below 200, then one must question the acumen of auction teams. Let’s also not forget how often the auction teams pay ridiculously large sums to get shockingly poor performances.
Table 2 contains more detailed data, and includes columns used in the MVPI calculation.
