IPL Flashback: Most Valuable Players of all seasons of IPL

IPL Flashback: Most Valuable Players of all seasons of IPL

Indian Premier League has a tradition of awarding the most valuable player of the season. The award was known as the “Man of the Tournament” for the first 5 seasons. In 2013, it was changed to the “Most Valuable Player”. Before the big event, IPL 2019 starts let’s rewind the Most Valuable Players of all seasons of IPL.

In the inaugural edition, Shane Watson won that award. Playing for Rajasthan Royals, he was magnificent throughout the season. The Royals ended up winning the first season under the captaincy of Shane Warne. Watson was impressive with both bat and bowl. The Australian repeated the feat in the 2013 edition when he won the award for the same team.

Apart from Watson, Sunil Narine is the only player who has won the Most Valuable Player award twice. The Caribbean spinner won it in 2012 and 2018. First, he bagged that solely for his mysterious bowling. But in 2018, the cricketing world had discovered another aspect of his game. He opened the innings for Kolkata Knight Riders and gave them explosive starts more often than not.

The Most Valuable Player award takes into account all the contributions on the field, be it batting, bowling or fielding. That’s why the all-rounders always have the best chance of claiming it. The winners like Watson, Andre Russell, Ben Stokes benefitted the most because of their all-round abilities.
