- Jacques Kallis
This man does not need any introduction for his contribution both in his international and IPL career. In the IPL, he played for the Royal Challengers Bangalore team and Kolkata Knight Riders, but his best performances came for the Kolkata side.
He was the most dominant all-rounder of his time, and to date, all-rounder-like him is a dream for every team in the entire cricketing nation. He was a pure top-order batter and a medium-pace bowler who liked to break partnerships regularly.

The most underrated Indian player, Gautam Gambhir, scored 2471 runs with a respectable average of 31.67. He was never known for his big hits, but the skill of leading a team from the front and giving stability throughout an innings makes him one of the great IPL players of all time.
- RP Singh
Rudra Pratap Singh, an Indian left-arm medium pacer known for his swinging deliveries, had a promising IPL career playing for several teams.

Chris Gayle started his IPL career in the Kolkata team but latr moved to the RCB team, where people saw his natural talent. He scored 2512 runs with a monstrous strike rate of 160.20, along with the highest score of 175 not out, which remains the highest score by any player in a single inning in the whole IPL history.

Amit Mishra is a legend in the IPL. He never got the limelight for his performances at the international level. But his IPL records were outstanding. He took a total of 95 wickets at an average of 20.25; Amit Mishra’s records were splendid.
He is not that regular now in the team’s playing eleven, but still, he did not announce his retirement yet. We expect he will bounce back and reach the 100-wicket milestone in the coming years.
