#5 Francois du Plessis
Faf du Plessis has always been the team man, be it for South Africa or Chennai Super Kings. A dependable batsman and an outstanding athlete, du Plessis brings in a plethora of experience to the table. In the limited opportunities that he has got throughout his career, the South African has proved his worth, scoring 519 runs from 17 outings at a decent average of 32.43 in the IPL.
In the current season, he has played only one game and waits in the wings for his chance. He easily saves 5-10 runs on the field for his captain, and would be a valuable asset for any team he plays for.
