IPL 2018: Top 5 candidates for the MVP award this season
The MVP is awarded to the best all-round player in the IPL
Although last season’s winner Ben Stokes doesn’t look likely to win it this season, there have been some brilliant players that have a good chance of winning the Most Valued Player award. Though players like Chris Gayle and Rashid Khan have been brilliabt in their respective roles, they offer little to nothing in the opposite roles. While awarding this particular prize, different factors like batting, bowling, fielding, catching etc. are taken into consideration. So here are 5 players who are most likely to pip the MVP award this season.
#5 AB de Villiers
Some of you might be surprised why he is not higher up on the list. If he was keeping wickets or even bowling his arm around like he did in the 2015 World Cup then maybe he would have been higher. There is no doubt that AB has been in terrific form. The current Orange cap holder has won many matches for RCB for many years.
Scoring at an average of 56 AB hs scored 280 runs at an awesome strike rate of 184, he surely is a serious contender. If he continues his great form then he might as well win the MVP.
