Indian Premier League 2016: Did David Warner deserve Most Valuable Player award more than Virat Kohli?

New Delhi: Despite the fact that Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper Virat Kohli was a run-machine in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2016, as he lifted the Most Valuable Player award trophy on Sunday, many thought Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper David Warner was the more deserving candidate for it.

While Kohli scored 973 runs compared to Warner's 848, fans were of the opinion that the Australian deserved the award more than Kohli, since the Delhi batsman played most of the matches at Chinnaswamy stadium – which is a batsman's paradise.

Also, while Kohli had the company of AB de Villiers and Chris Gayle, Warner had the responsibility of doing most of the scoring as none of the batsmen in his squad were consistent with their performances.

Even in the post-match discussion for Sony Six, Rameez Raja and Navjot Singh Sidhu were of the view that some injustice had been done to Warner, who played two stupendous knocks for his team in the final two matches.

The former Pakistani cricketer also took to Twitter to share his thoughts about the same.
