England bowler Jofra Archer has won the Indian Premier League's most valuable player award.

The 25-year-old fast Sussex bowler, who played for Rajasthan Royals, took 20 wickets at an average of 18.25.

Archer's award was announced following the final which saw Mumbai Indians claim the title for a fifth time with a five-wicket win over the Capitals.
