The Most Valuable Player in the Indian Premier League is determined by points at the end of the league every year. In 2013, a rating system was introduced to find out the MVP at the end of each IPL season. According to the points system – Every four gives 2.5 points, every six gives 3.5 points to a batsman and then each wicket means 3.5 points, a dot ball gives 1 point. For each stumping or catch, a fielder gets 2.5 points.
This clearly means a consistent good all-around presence on the field is required to get the award. In the upcoming IPL once again a lot of superstars will hit the group to feature in the most entertaining T20 league.
