Top Bowler: Mitchell McClanaghan
He has been one of the pick of the bowlers for Mumbai ever since he has been included in the squad. He is the top wicket-taker for Mumbai Indians with 15 wickets. Though he has been leaking a few runs he makes it up by picking up crucial wickets.
Top All-Rounder: Chris Morris
The South African is one of the finest all-rounders in the tournament and has been a very important player for the Delhi team. Morris is a kind of a player which every team will want in their team. He has not let his team down giving his hundred percent every time he walks out to the cricket field.
