The Indian Premier League has helped in fulfilling the dreams of many cricket fans who desired to witness their favorite batsmen from different countries bat together. Over the years, we have seen dream combinations like Ricky Ponting-Sourav Ganguly, Ricky Ponting-Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli-AB de Villiers and many more come to fruition in the Indian Premier League.

However, there have been many dream batting combinations which the fans have not yet seen and maybe will never ever see in the future as a lot of legends have retired from all forms of cricket.

Here's a list of the top 10 dream batting combinations that we never saw in the 12 years of the Indian Premier League.

#10 Chris Gayle and Rohit Sharma

Chris Gayle is perhaps the most destructive opener to have played in the Indian Premier League. The West Indian legend started off his IPL journey as a part of Kolkata Knight Riders before he moved to Royal Challengers Bangalore and established himself as the king of IPL. Currently, he is a part of the Kings XI Punjab side. Despite being 40 years old, the Universe Boss has continued to dismantle opposition bowlers with his huge strikes.

Just like Gayle, Rohit Sharma is known for his six-hitting abilities and the Mumbai skipper is amongst the top six-hitters of world cricket at the moment. The pair of Chris Gayle and Rohit Sharma would have ensured that the live audience and the fans watching IPL matches on TV get a full dose of maximums.

The fact that they would form a right-left combination would add more to the woes of the bowlers.
