Who Is The King of IPL 2020? The MVP Award Goes To This Player
Who is the King of IPL 2020? He bowled some outstanding spells in the tournament and it was a treat to watch him run and bowl. Alley Sport brings you the updates on the King of IPL 2020 and more news from the cricket world.
Jofra Archer – The King of IPL 2020
Jofra Archer from Rajasthan Royals won the most valuable player award in the tournament and he has to be the king of IPL 2020. He was rewarded for taking 20 wickets in 14 games in the tournament with a strike rate of 16.70. He bowled the tough overs in the death and the powerplay but still had an economy rate of 6.55 which is seriously good from the tall lad.
He topped the charts for the highest player points with 305 and his batting had enough impact in the tournament to go with 10 sixes. He played some handy knocks at the crucial stages of the match and took his team home more than once. Kagiso Rabada came so close in bagging the award with 298 points having played 3 more games than Archer.
Best bowling spells in the tournament
Archer’s art of new ball bowling was really enjoyed by the experts and fans and the feel of the stumps getting rattled was one to watch out for . The pitches in UAE assisted the world class fast bowlers really well and Archer is one of the best in the business going around. He clocked speeds of over 150 with minimal effort and he never gave away easy runs while bowling 175 dot balls. That’s a huge number!!
His stellar spell came while playing against Delhi Capitals when he picked 3 for 19 and the dismissal of Prithvi Shaw in the first ball of the match to hit the top of middle stumps was really high class stuff from Archer. Though he had his best IPL tournament, it was only an one man show and he had no support from the other bowlers and Rajasthan failed to qualify for the playoffs.
He had every variations in his sleeve to go with a shearing Yorker and a lethal bouncer which made life difficult for even the best batsman in the tournament. The tall English lad hit the deck hard and slight seam movements off the pitch was enough to knock over the stumps more often. He was a champion bowler indeed, and his 4 overs never seemed to be enough for the viewers.
