Yashasvi Jaiswal Zooms To Top In MVP Index
Srinivas Bhogle and Purnendu Maji present Rediff.com‘s Most Valuable Player Index of IPL 2023 after Game 42.
Yashasvi Jaiswal’s 124 in just 62 balls has made him this IPL’s most valuable player with a MVPI of 511.
Devon Conway (422) has jumped to third place, and Marcus Stoinis (348) is now at # 9; he could stay up there if his finger allows him.
Seven of the top 10 performers are currently from India; it is especially gratifying to see Virat Kohli (7, 363) up there after last year’s horrors.
India’s three top test all-rounders: Ravindra Jadeja (406), Axar Patel (394) and R Ashwin (361) are also in the top ten.
It makes you wonder if there’s a real test vs T20 divide, or it’s really only about good form.
Look at how Ajinkya Rahane (25, 289) is playing! And wouldn’t it be wonderful if England’s best test batsman, Joe Root, also joins the party from RR?
Recall that MVPI collapses a player’s batting, bowling and fielding performance into a single ‘run equivalent’.
To have the best MVPI value, batters must score a lot of runs with a high strike rate and bowlers must take a lot of wickets with a low economy rate.
Table 1 (we’ve now broken up our data into two tables) also identifies players that offer best value for money, via the paisa vasool index (PVI).
PVI tells you how many US dollars the franchise pays the player for every ‘run equivalent’ that he contributes.
Look down Table 1 to spot players with a PVI of less than $500. They are the real ‘steals’ of every franchise!
