The Indian Premier League has grown to become the world’s most popular and widely followed T20 league. The top players from around the world unite to compete for India’s eight city-based teams. Many cricketers have benefited from the IPL, but it is one thing to play in the IPL and quite another to be referred to as the King of the IPL.
Every IPL cricketer’s aim is to rule the tournament as if he is the King of the IPL. However, not everyone is capable of doing so on a constant basis. It would be incorrect to designate one player as the King of the IPL because everyone has a different perspective, and there are other players who merit this honor.
Suresh Raina has earned the moniker “Mr. IPL” due to his outstanding achievements in the IPL. With his outstanding batting talents, the southpaw has overpowered the opposition bowlers.
For a long period, Raina held the record for the most runs in the IPL. He is also a superb fielder and a capable part-time bowler, giving him a contender for the title of IPL King.
AB de Villiers
AB de Villiers began his IPL career with the Delhi Daredevils, then known as the Delhi Daredevils. After three seasons with DD, de Villiers was called up to the RCB squad.
In the previous ten years, the South African star has been a game-changer for RCB. He has annihilated bowlers in slog overs and presently holds the record for the most Man of the Match accolades in tournament history.
Chris Gayle’s tremendous hitting performances in the competition have earned him the moniker “Universe Boss.” He has the greatest individual score in IPL history.
Often, aside from will struggle to score 175 runs in an IPL inning. Chris Gayle, on the other hand, accomplished the feat in one inning against the Pune Warriors. He has also won the Orange Cap several times, making him one of the leading contenders for this title.
Virat Kohli is the leading run-scorer in the Indian Premier League. He recently became the tournament’s first player to score 6,000 runs.
Kohli also holds the record for most runs scored in a single season. He has also blasted five IPL tonnes. Unfortunately, Virat Kohli’s RCB has never won the IPL title.
MS Dhoni has led the Chennai Super Kings as captain since 2008. He is the lone player who captained a squad in 2008 and will do it again in 2021.
CSK reached the playoffs in all ten seasons they played under MS Dhoni’s captaincy, winning three times. They are currently performing incredibly well in IPL 2021 as well.
Rohit Sharma is the only player to have won 5 IPL titles and to have done so in three separate nations. As the captain of the Mumbai Indians, he has won five IPL Finals.
Sharma has also received the Emerging Player of the Year Award. Despite the fact that an Orange Cap has eluded him, Sharma has delivered devastating knocks in the IPL. His amazing performance as captain makes him the leading contender for the title of King of the IPL.
