1. Aaron Finch (Gujarat Lions)
Touted as one of the most successful T20I batters of the world, Aaron Finch has performed outstandingly well as an opener for Aussies in the shortest format of the game. The former Kangaroo skipper had topped the ICC T20I batting ratings for an extended period of time before being displaced by Virat Kohli, recently. Finch is a very aggressive batsman and is particularly known for taking the attack to the spinners.
The Aussie dasher also holds the record for the highest individual score of 156 runs in T20 internationals. Finch averages 39 with a strike-rate of 150 after having made 28 appearances in T20Is. In IPL as well he has scored in excess of 1,000 runs and would look to haunt the bowlers opening alongside Brendon McCullum for Gujarat Lions.
