Virat Kohli – (M – 177, R – 5412, Best – 113) - Indian cricket’s most loved player currently, Kohli has been with the Royal Challengers Bangalore since 2008 and his best season was 2016. RCB finished runners-up and Kohli broke the record for most runs in an IPL season (of 733 runs) by scoring 973 runs in 16 matches at an average of 81.08. (Photo: IPLT20)

Suresh Raina – (M – 193, R – 5368, Best – 100*) - The first cricketer to break the 5000-run barrier in the IPL, Raina, like Kohli with RCB, has been a Chennai Super Kings loyalist except for the couple of years with the Gujarat Lions. Raina, who was the first to break the 2000-run barrier too, has been a very important part of the CSK set up, playing crucial roles when it mattered most in their title run-ins. (Photo: IPLT20)

Rohit Sharma – (M – 188, R – 4898, Best – 109*) - The Mumbai Indians captain needs no introduction, especially given the way he led them to the title in the last season against Chennai Super Kings. One of the most destructive yet elegant batsmen in the modern era, Rohit’s striking abilities is unmatched, especially once he gets his eye in. (Photo: IPLT20)

David Warner – (M – 126, R – 4706, Best – 126) - Despite missing a season due to the ball-tampering scandal that rocked Australian cricket, Warner is fourth on the list of most run getters in the IPL – more than a fair indication about his abilities with the bat. The southpaw, who played his first IPL in 2009 (season 2), was the second highest run getter in 2016 when Surisers Hyderabad won their first title, under his leadership. (Photo: IPLT20)

Shikhar Dhawan – (M – 159, R – 4579, Best – 97*) - Another swashbuckling left hander at the top of the order, Dhawan has moved from Delhi to Mumbai to Hyderabad and then back to Delhi during his time in the IPL. Common to all his stints are plenty of sixes and boundaries. 2019 (521 runs) was his best year after 2012 (569 runs) however he is yet to score a century and will want to change that this season.(Photo: IPLT20)

Chris Gayle – (M – 125, R – 4484, Best – 175*) - Chris Gayle or ‘Universe Boss’ at the IPL has always been source of immense joy for fans as his approach to batting is very simple. He either stays in and scores plenty of runs or gets dismissed early on, apart from being an entertaining personality on the field too. T20 cricket’s single greatest entertainer, first conquered Bangalore before making a quiet move to Kings XI Punjab in 2018, and made instant impact with another strong season that included a century against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

MS Dhoni – (M – 190, R – 4432, Best – 84*) - A batting powerhouse, MS Dhoni possesses the ability to destroy different bowling attacks on his own. The calmness and composure in his demeanor along with a sharp cricketing brain accounts for a lethal combination on the cricketing field and the glistening silverware in the trophy cabinets at CSK are a testimony to his extraordinary leadership skills.

Ab de Villiers – (M – 154, R – 4395, Best – 133*) - Indian captain Virat Kohli’s best pal in the RCB colours, the South African AB de Villiers is one of the most destructive batsmen to have played the sport – with a range of shots all round the pitch he was aptly named Mr 360. Having begun in Delhi, AB moved to Bangalore and has scored three of his four centuries in T20 cricket for the team. (Photo: IPLT20)
