Many would remember him in yellow of CSK, but very few know his heroics in the blue of Rajasthan Royals. He has taken retirement from International and IPL cricket.
3. David Warner
David Warner has 4 centuries in 150 IPL games and features at number 3 amongst the batters with most IPL tons. This left-handed batter is regarded as an IPL legend thanks to his consistency and ability to score runs by taking the least risks.
