The spectacular, much-awaited, ecstatic excitement that IPL summons, returns once again! Of course, as we know due to restrictions brought forth by the unprecedented outbreak of COVID-19 the fervour of the crowd will be missing but the millions of fans in India and around the world, can still tune-in to this cricketing bonanza and watch the vivid talent that the IPL contains!

Speaking of talent, the IPL is the stomping ground of highly-skilled elite cricketers from around the world, which is what makes it the centre of explosive brilliance! So, in lieu of all the oversea talent that we have witnessed over the years, here’s a list of the all-time great cricketers that have graced the prestigious Indian Premier League:

David Warner

Solidifying his position as one of the most explosive and ruthless openers across formats, David Warner had proficiently led the Sunrisers Hyderabad to their first tournament win in 2016. He was the second-highest run-scorer for them in their championship winning attempt with a gargantuan 848 runs at an impressive strike rate of 151.42. He had an outstanding IPL season in 2017 as well and returned back vehemently in 2019 securing 692 runs in 12 matches. Marked as the Captain for the 2020 edition as well, Warner will be looking to concretize his dominance this year again!

AB de Villiers

AB de Villers is a perfect amalgamation of explosive force with innovative talent. Although he can perfectly execute a classical batting style he can also improvise with the beat, leading to some jaw-dropping shots over the years. On a good day, AB can single-handedly help win the team matches. For Royal Challenger Bangalore, de Villiers has had a plethora of outstanding innings, as he demonstrated his power-hitting even against giants like Dale Steyn. With Virat Kohli, AB has secured five 100+ partnerships for RCB and two 200+ partnerships, the only batting duo in history to post two such partnerships.!

Shane Watson

An attacking batsman with an impressive defence, agile fielding and a dependable medium-pacer, he can seriously swing the ball and pick up important wickets. The all-rounder has always played a monumental role in his IPL team’s fortunes, and CSK will hope he brings in the same aggression and robustness into their team.
