As the IPL2 enters the final straight in South Africa, no doubt Matthew Hayden has been the most effective player.

In a format that urges batsmen to take risks at a frenetic rate in the relentless pursuit of glory, consistency over a period of time seems an unachievable dream.

And yet it's something the Chennai Super Kings opener has accomplished in amassing an extraordinary 426 runs from nine matches, averaging 47.33 at a strike rate of 151 runs per 100 balls.
