Jofra Archer's Rajasthan Royals may have finished at the bottom of the table but the allrounders' effort with the ball and the bat throughout the season earned him the Most Valuable Player IPL 2020 - MVP - award at the season-end awards. Mumbai Indians claimed their fifth IPL title beating Delhi Capitals by five wickets at Dubai on Wednesday. This is the first time a player from the team finishing last has won the MVP award. Generally, the MVP is almost everything from the team winning the tournament or from teams making it to the playoffs at least.
MI Trent Boult walked away with the Powerplayer of the season award while Kagiso Rabada with 30 wickets held on to the Purple Cap. KL Rahul's tally of 670 runs was not surpassed by Shikhar Dhawan and he claimed the Orange Cap. Archer won the award with 305 points while the young player of the season award went to Devdutt Padikkal of Royal Challengers Bangalore.
