5. Brendon McCullum (Gujarat Lions)
Who can forget McCullum’s blitz in the first match of the IPL which set the league on fire. McCullum has been devastating in the last few years and recently hung up his boots on a high as well when he blasted the fastest Test ton in the history of cricket.
Players like McCullum make cricket a treat to watch and the new franchise; GL would be expecting huge things from this Kiwi legend. In 76 IPL matches, he has hammered 2080 runs at an average of almost 30 and strike-rate of 130. The former Kiwi skipper will set the tone of the batting for GL, this IPL.
