9. ROHIT SHARMA (INDIA)
The Mumbai Indian’s captain kicked off the season in style with a tremendous innings of 98* against the Kolkata Knight Riders in their very own backyard. He is the face of the franchisee and is the batting main stay of the side. The stylish Mumbaikar is a class apart and has an impeccable gift of timing which makes him second to none. He has played a very significant role in his team’s emergence from the last to the second spot in the points table as and when the league phase concluded. He has racked up 413 runs at an average of 34 with two half-centuries in his kitty. But his strike has been a relevation and has given much-needed impetus to the side. He has struck the ball at a rate of 140 per innings. He is ranked 9th in the list.
