Who leads the IPL Paisa Vasool Index this week?

The MVPI table lists the top 50 performing players, and shows how some big names are still under-performing: Rohit Sharma (36th, 164), Hardik Pandya (37th, 164), Suresh Raina (43rd, 154), Jos Buttler (44th, 148), Manish Pandey (46th, 146) and Ben Stokes (47th, 135).

Just out of curiosity, we looked at the big names not in the top 50 list. And there were some surprises: Ravindra Jadeja(66th, 86), Kieron Pollard (78th, 58), Gautam Gambhir (79th, 57), Aaron Finch (88th, 39), Harbhajan Singh (90th, 39) and Yuvraj Singh (103rd, 18).

However, you can always hope and expect these big names to make a good comeback because they have the pedigree.

The Paisa Vasool Index (PVI) measures how much bang each player gives for the bucks he receives.

PVI measures how much money (in $ or Rs) the franchise owner pays for every ‘run equivalent’ scored by the player.
