#5 Rohit Sharma
One of the most talented batsmen of his generation, Rohit Sharma is one of the few players to have scored more than 4000 runs in the Indian Premier League.
He led the Mumbai Indians to glory in the IPL thrice (2013, 2015 and 2017) under his captaincy. Best known for his technique and power hitting, the former vice-captain of the Deccan Chargers has one century and 32 half-centuries to his name.
The MI captain scored 4233 runs with a strike rate of 130.56 and averages 32.31 runs per match.
Rohit Sharma didn't start very well this season and scored just 26 runs in his first two games. But we cannot rule out a batsman of his caliber as he can shift gears at any moment.
