Today we discuss the MVP favorites in IPL 2020. The 13th edition of the Indian Premier League is underway in the United Arab Emirates and our excitement knows no bounds at this juncture. The tournament has started on a rollicking note with every team showing glimpses of their excellent performers. By the initial looks of it, the tournament is poised to be a great and competitive one with the players shining through even more in the latter stages of the tournament.
The fun fact, however, is that every team has roped in some impact players who could turn the tide of a match within a space of a few overs, either with the bat or the ball in hand. Following are a list of some of the most important and valuable players from each of the teams. While they are the MVP favorites in IPL 2020, only one can be the actual winner.
Faf du Plessis (Chennai Super Kings)
Du Plessis has been the only CSK batsman who has looked in convincing form, striking the ball beautifully. His exquisite timing has fetched him a fair amount of runs in the ongoing tournament. In the absence of Suresh Raina in the middle, Du Plessis has to take the bulk of the responsibility for his team. Among the MVP favorites in IPL 2020.
Jasprit Bumrah (Mumbai Indians)
Although we haven’t seen Bumrah in the best of form, except the last innings he bowled against RR, the world-class bowler that he is, he would be itching to make a mark. Bumrah’s wicket-taking ability at all the junctures of the game, his variations, and his knack of seldom giving away any loose ball makes him an absolute must in the limited-overs format. Among the MVP favorites in IPL 2020.
Mayank Agarwal (Kings XI Punjab)
It was a difficult choice between KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal, however, the immensely talented Indian opener is expected to be one of the most exciting players to watch out for in this tournament. Mayank has all the shots in the book and it looks picturesque when he plays a cover drive or a pull or a heave down the mid-wicket. Undoubtedly one of the most elegant Indian batsmen today, Agarwal is set to make his mark and justify his selection into the Indian team. Among the MVP favorites in IPL 2020.
Steve Smith (Rajasthan Royals)
Although RR has someone like Jos Butler who at his destructive best can dismantle any bowling attack in the world and can single-handedly win matches for RR, Steve Smith would be the glue that binds the team together. His clinical batting and astute captaincy would be the most important factor behind Royal’s progress. Among the MVP favorites in IPL 2020.
AB de Villiers (Royal Challengers Bangalore)
With Virat Kohli in the team you seldom expect someone else to be the most valuable player. However, that is not the case when you have someone like AB De Villiers in your ranks as well. Although Virat would anchor the RCB batting line up, the presence of De Villiers would instill fear in the mind of the opposition bowlers as we have all witnessed the havoc that the South African legend can cause when in rhythm. Among the MVP favorites in IPL 2020.
Andre Russell (Kolkata Knight Riders)
Although KKR has dished out 15.50 crore for the ace Australian fast bowler, Pat Cummins, Andre Russell would be holding the key this year as well. His explosive batting and wicket-taking ability would be extremely crucial in KKR’s quest for a third IPL title.
Rashid Khan (Sunrisers Hyderabad)
SRH does have three-star batsmen in the form of captain David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, and Kane Williamson. However, the Afghan sensation with the ball in hand will be the deciding factor between claiming the title for the second time and reaching the playoffs. The mystery web that the leg spinner spins around the opposition batsmen on the majority of occasions would be the most crucial factor in a game. Among the MVP favorites in IPL 2020.
Kagiso Rabada (Delhi Capitals)
The ace South African fast bowler was the highest wicket-taker for the franchise the previous year as well. His ripper deliveries and his ability to change the course of a match within a few overs will be deciding the fate of Delhi on multiple occasions. Among the MVP favorites in IPL 2020.
