Top 10 Best Batsmen of IPL 2016


8. Suresh Raina (Gujarat Lions) – 272 runs

Suresh RainaThe Gujarat Lions skipper, Suresh Raina has not been in the best of forms, this year in the shortest format of the game. Even in the IPL, the southpaw has looked scratchy in his quest to hit his purple patch.

But there’s a thing which separates class players from the rest, that is, even when not in best of forms, they toil hard and are well-versed with the art of scoring runs in one way or the other. And that has been the case with Raina as well who has formed the crux of the Gujarat batting along with Dinesh Karthik in the middle-overs. The destructive Indian batter has hammered 272 runs in 10 matches at an average of 27.2 and strike-rate of 130.77.
