IPL 2019, one of the most eagerly awaited tournaments, is around the corner! And, why not! It is the extravangaza where we see our favourite cricketers entertain us to the core. From batsmen unleashing their power-hitting to the crack bowling, it has all that a cricket lover wants.
When it comes to destruction with the bat, these gentlemen are next to none. Let’s look at the 5 Most destructive batsmen in IPL history.
Rohit Sharma is like a fine wine that keeps getting better each passing year. The Indian opener and Mumbai Indians skipper is the third highest run-getter in the history of IPL. He has piled 4480 runs in 167 innings. Hitman has smashed 184 sixes in the competition so far.
#4 Suresh Raina
Suresh Raina is one of the biggest strengths of the most successful team Chennai Super Kings. The highest run-getter in the history of IPL, Raina has also struck 185 sixes so far in his IPL career.
#3 MS Dhoni
MS Dhoni, one of the best wicket-keeper batsmen in the world has ever seen, packs a punch in whatever he does. Helping Chennai Super Kings to titles in 2010, 2011 and 2018, Mahi has always led from the front. He is, still, one of the most feared batsmen of the finishing stages.
#2 AB de Villiers
Mr. 360 moved to Royal Challenger Bangalore (RCB) from Delhi Daredevils after a quiet IPL stint, and what a player he has been for the side. If it wasn’t for Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers, RCB would have been half a team they are at the moment.
#1 Chris Gayle
Chris Gayle is Universe Boss! With six 100s and 292 sixes in the competition, Chris Gayle is in the league of his own. He has ruled, and may continue to do so again this year!
