K Srikkanth names the most valuable player ever in IPL
The Indian Premier League (IPL) is arguably the most successful T20 franchise league in the world. It has been an entertaining league ever since the inception of the tournament.
Rohit Sharma's Mumbai Indians are the most successful team in the history of IPL while MS Dhoni's Chennai Super Kings are the second most with three titles on their bag.
Kolkata Knight Riders have won 2 seasons so far in the cash-rich league. On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Deccan Chargers and Rajasthan Royals have won a title each.
The skipper of the Royal Challengers Bangalore, Virat Kohli is the leading run-getter of the league with 5,949 runs. He has 5 centuries and 39 fifties to his name. On the other hand, Lasith Malinga is the leading wicket-taker of the league with 170 wickets.
K Srikkanth picks the most valuable player of the league:
The former Indian cricketer, Krishnamachari Srikkanth is currently in the commentary panel of the Star Sports Tamil. Meanwhile, he has picked the most valuable player in the IPL.
He feels that the mystery spinner from Afghanistan, Rashid Khan is the most valuable player in the IPL. He has been one of the toughest bowlers in the modern era.
