5. Chris Gayle (West Indies) – 23
Chris Gayle is the epitome of aggression, for hits most bowlers with disdain. He is the poster boy of t20 cricket. The calypso king has so far represented Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL. In the IPL, although he starts off cautiously but ends mercilessly. He is the fear factor for the opponents and on his own is like a one man army. He is the only player to score in excess of 700 runs in two consecutive seasons of IPL.. The looks itself will freighten any bowler, he looks like a demon with his weapon waging a war. He is regarded as one of the most consistent player in the history of IPL. He has accumulated 18 half-centuries and 5 centuries at an average of 47. The Royal Challengers Bangalore bowlers are a lucky bunch, the reason being they do not have to bowl at the mighty ‘Gaylestorm’. He is ranked 5th in the list.
