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.

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.
