The Most Valuable Player (MVP) is one of the prestigious awards of the Indian Premier League (IPL). A special point calculating system is followed to choose the MVP of the tournament where all the three departments of the game are evaluated. Every player who participates in the cash-rich league dreams of grabbing the laurel.

IPL 2020 is almost here and the preparations for the mega cricketing event is in full swing in the UAE. The players are sweating it out in the hot and humid conditions of middle-east to prepare themselves for the first major cricket tournament post-COVID.

In this edition of the IPL, some players are strong contenders of winning the MVP award. To narrow down the list of contenders we have decided to predict one valuable player of each team in IPL 2020.

Here we try and predict the MVP from each teams: –

8. RCB – Virat Kohli

The biggest player of the Royal Challengers Bangalore is their skipper Virat Kohli. His form with the bat will be key to RCB’s fate in the tournament. In the last three seasons, Kohli was subdued and as a result, RCB finished at the bottom half of the points table.

Virat is having a quiet 2020 so far where he is averaging 43 in ODIs and 32 in T20Is. Now, these are not bad numbers by any means but not just up to the Kohli-standards. So this COVID break might have been a refreshing one for the skipper where he had the chance to reflect on his batting in the last six months or so.

The MVP of IPL 2016 will be raring to go in the cricket field again and show his beast mode with the bat. Kohli’s captaincy and fielding will also be something to look forward as he looks to win his maiden IPL title this year.
