IPL 2021: 5 Players Who Can Win The Player Of The Tournament Award This Season

Prev1 of 5

The 14th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) may have been halted due to multiple Covid-related cases across four different franchises but before it got suspended, we witnessed a plethora of memorable moments across all three facets of the game from a lot of players.

The IPL will now resume in September in the United Arab Emirates and it will be interesting to see how the guys, who performed really well during the India leg, go about their business.

Should they continue their stellar form, they will certainly close in towards winning the ‘Player of the Tournament’ Award.

On that note, here’s a look at 5 such players who can win the ‘Player of the Tournament’ Award in IPL 2021:

Ravindra Jadeja (Chennai Super Kings)

Ravindra Jadeja carried his brilliant form of the last three years in IPL 2021, proving to be Chennai Super Kings ‘MVP’ yet again.

The champion all-rounder delivered in all three facets of the game. He claimed outrageous catches for fun- sometimes four of them in a single game- unleashed fury on the bowlers at the death with whirlwind cameos besides chipping in with handy performances with the ball.

Jadeja’s best performance came against the Royal Challengers Bangalore where he smashed an audacious unbeaten 28-ball 62, which also included as many as 37 runs in one over of Harshal Patel.

He then backed it up with three wickets which included the likes of Glenn Maxwell and AB de Villiers, and if that wasn’t enough, the all-rounder also affected a brilliant run-out of Dan Christian.

Overall, Jadeja smashed 131 runs in 6 innings at a strike rate of 161.72 besides claiming 6 wickets in 7 matches at an average of 26.83 and an economy rate of 6.70.

If Jadeja can continue his form during the UAE leg, then he will surely be one of the front-runners to win the ‘Player of the Tournament’ award.
