6. Murali Vijay (Chennai Super Kings) – 127 runs
Known for his class and elegance and often stereotyped as a Test specialist, Murali Vijay played the T20 innings of his life against Rajasthan Royals at Chennai in IPL 2010. And what a beautiful innings that was. Vijay had played a sensational knock of 127 runs which came off just 56 deliveries. The knock included 8 fours and 11 sixes and had class written all over it. It will go down in the folklore of IPL as one of the most silky and gracious innings ever. Vijay had taken special care of Rajasthan’s captain, Shane Warne in the match and targeted him hardheartedly. Vijay’s knock had also led Chennai to its highest ever total of 246 runs in the IPL.
