Shane Watson was the first player to win the award in the inaugural edition of the IPL. Watson is one of the three players to win the coveted award in two different seasons. He won it for the first time in the inaugural season for scoring 472 runs besides claiming 17 wickets. Watson repeated the feat in 2013 after he scored 543 runs in addition to taking 13 wickets.

Sachin Tendulkar was the first Indian to receive that award

Sachin Tendulkar was the only Indian who won the "IPL Most Valuable Player" Award between 2008-15. He received it in the 2010 season for scoring 618 runs. During 2008-12, Tendulkar and Gayle were the only players who didn't end up on the title-winning team after winning the award. Adam Gilchrist (495 runs in 2009), and Sunil Narine (24 wickets in 2012) were both part of the IPL-winning franchise. Narine added another award to his bag in 2018. Glenn Maxwell won the same in 2014 for his breathtaking 552 runs but his side ended up losing the final to the Kolkata Knight Riders.

In 2015, Andre Russell claimed the first of his two "IPL Man of the Tournament" awards in 2015 after scoring 326 runs and bagging 14 wickets.
