Batting in T20 cricket is not easy, as a batsman barely gets time to settle at the crease. In the shortest format of cricket, you are invariably expected to go hammer and tongs from the word go, and consequently, strike rate becomes the most important metric for a batsman.

The Indian Premier League is a marquee T20 tournament which attracts the best of the talent from across the world. As a result, the competition is really stiff during IPL and the quality of bowling is really high, which makes matters even tougher for batsmen.

There have been a few batsmen throughout the history of IPL who have been able to master the quick scoring approach towards batting. With IPL 2019 just a few weeks away, here's a look at 5 batsmen who are at the top of the charts as far as strike rate is concerned:
