Top 5 all-time players in the history of the IPL


The best cricketers in the world come together for a summer fiesta of league cricket in India called the Indian Premier League. Now in its tenth year, the Indian Premier League is among the most-watched sporting events of the calendar year. New blood, brilliant nail-biting finishes and legendary performances are part and parcel of the Indian Premier League. Here are the 5 all-time greatest players in IPL history.

1. Mahendra Singh Dhoni
India’s legendary ‘Captain Cool’ is one of the best batsmen and innings finishers in world cricket. With his trademark helicopter shot and his innate ability to thrive under pressure, Dhoni is a surefire inclusion on this list.

3. Lasith Malinga
A titan of Sri Lankan cricket, Lasith Malinga and his approach to bowling sees him as, arguably, the best bowler in the entire IPL franchise. 154 wickets speak for themselves after all, and Malinga is famous for his scalps at crucial points in an opposition’s innings.

4. Virat Kohli
While Royal Challengers Bangalore may have never won the IPL title, their captain – Virat Kohli is arguably the finest cricketer on the planet today. His leadership skills, batting brilliance and firebrand attitude make him a force to be reckoned with.

5. Chris Gayle
No list on the IPL is complete without mention of West Indies’ Chris Gayle. A behemoth batsman, he has won the ‘Most Sixes’ award for four years and tends to play innings that are a knockout blow to the opposition bowling attack.
