Rahul and Hardik were hugely criticized after the incident during the talk show earlier this year and now they have recovered well as the duo did well for their respective franchises in the IPL 2019. Rahul finished as the second highest run-scorer in the season, scoring 593 runs at an average of 53.90.
On the other hand, Pandya, who was one of the most valuable players in the season, scored 402 runs and scalped 14 wickets. Among the others, Windies all-rounder Andre Russell, who did most of the job for the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), received the awards for the most valuable player and super striker of the season.
Young Shubman Gill, who made a mark while opening the innings for the KKR bagged the emerging player of the season while Kieron Pollard took home the perfect catch of the season award. David Warner and Imran Tahir bagged the orange cap and purple cap respectively. While the fair play award belonged to SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH).
