9. Ambati Rayudu (Mumbai Indians) – 271 runs
The middle-order mainstay of Mumbai Indians, Ambati Rayudu has piled up crucial runs for his side in trying circumstances. Mumbai Indians are renowned for making slow starts to their IPL campaigns and they have imitated the same trend in this season as well. But to their joy, Rayudu has stood tall among the struggling middle-order of Mumbai.
The Guntur-born cricketer has amassed 271 runs in 8 matches at an average of almost 34 and strike-rate of 124.88. Now as the tournament is progressing towards do-or-die stages, the likes of Kieron Pollard and Jos Buttler are also coming to the fore. But Rayudu remains a vital cog for the side with his versatile abilities and mastery in playing the accumulator as well as the accelerator role.
