8. Kevin Pietersen (Delhi Daredevils) – 103* runs
The maverick English batsman, Kevin Pietersen was one of the first prominent players from England to participate in the IPL. There was a time when England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) didn’t have much of a liking for the league but KP is known as a rebel for some serious reasons. He not only participates in the league but makes his presence felt as well. In IPL 2012 against Deccan Chargers, the hosts Delhi Daredevils were tottering at 23-3 chasing a stiff target of 158 runs. The match had tilted in favor of Deccan Chargers. But KP turned the tide for his side and powered DD to an unlikely win with a breath-taking knock of 103* runs. KP struck 6 fours and 9 sixes in this match winning innings. It was his maiden T20 ton as well.
