1. Faf Du Plessis (CSK)
Faf Du Plessis has been CSK’s in-form batsman in IPL 2020. He is their highest run-getter (and the fourth-highest overall) in the tournament with 375 runs in 10 matches at a strike rate of 141.5, including 4 fifties. Not only has he scored big runs but scored them at a fast rate – this makes him doubly dangerous for the opposition.
2. Shane Watson (CSK)

He has aggregated 3860 runs at a strike rate of 138.35 smashing 4 hundreds and also picked 92 wickets at a strike rate of 22 and economy rate of just under 8 in 144 matches in the IPL. The Australian has not had a great tournament as his strike rate of 125 indicates, but he is known to be a big-match player and may have just reserved his best when CSK need it the most.
3. Trent Boult (MI)
Trent Boult has done a commendable job with the new ball for MI in IPL 2020. He has picked 12 wickets in 9 matches at a strike rate of 17.6 and was leading the MI attack in the initial stage of the tournament when Jasprit Bumrah was in indifferent form.

5) Quinton De Kock (MI)
Quinton De Kock has been MI's best batsman of IPL 2020 and the most consistent one, he has scored 322 runs in 9 innings at a strike rate of 146.36 including 4 fifties. The South African opener has the ability to score big runs at a fast pace, this makes him doubly dangerous at the top of the order.
