Khel Now is excited to announce the return of its signature feature, the Khel Now Power Rankings, for the new Indian Super League (ISL) 2023-24 season. Just like the previous season, we aim to identify the top 10 performers in the league throughout the season’s duration.

This season, we will continue our tradition by highlighting the 10 best performers up to this point, with a comprehensive ranking system. Additionally, at the season’s conclusion, we will present the top 10 performers across the entire season.

To accomplish this, we’ve devised a specific methodology that considers the entirety of the season. For every ISL fixture, our dedicated editors and correspondents meticulously rank the three best performers from each match. The top-ranked player receives five points, followed by three points for the second-ranked player, and one point for the third-ranked player. These points are accumulated and carried forward for each player throughout the league.

This meticulous process ensures that we identify and celebrate the standout performers in each match, culminating in a comprehensive list of the top 10 performers at the season’s end. We are dedicated to providing our readers with an insightful and thorough analysis of player performances in the ISL 2023-24 season.

The rankings will be segmented into 5 phases, with the initial two phases consisting of 27 games each, while the remaining three phases will include 26 games each. Phase 1 statistics will is tallied up to and including the matches played between Chennaiyin FC and Punjab FC.
