  1. KL Rahul (Kings XI Punjab) – 173.86

His 132 not out off 69 balls, scored at a strike-rate of 191.30 has propelled him to the numero uno position with an overall tournament strike-rate of 173.86. Rahul, in fact, was more impressive in the second half of his century.  After taking 36 balls to score his first 50 and then motoring along to 100 in the next 26 balls. The last 32 runs came off just 7 balls for the KXIP opener.

  1. Faf du Plessis (Chennai Super Kings) – 149.13

One doesn’t often associate a very high strike-rate with the South African captain, who has a career IPL strike-rate around 128. But Du Plessis has been in splendid form for CSK, scoring runs in every outing so far with two half-centuries in three matches. His most destructive knock so far was 72 off 37 balls against the Rajasthan Royals, scored at a strike-rate of 194.59 which has given a massive boost to his strike-rate this year.

  1. Rohit Sharma (Mumbai Indians) – 143.75

The Mumbai Indians skipper had a slow start to the tournament against CSK but bounced back into form against the Kolkata Knight Riders in the second game. The Hitman’s 80 off 64 balls at a strike-rate of 148.14 has taken him to the third position in the table.

The KXIP opener continued his form against Royal Challengers Bangalore during his brief innings to lay his claim as a hard-hitting opener.
