2) David Warner – Leading from the front
The IPL has unearthed various gems and the Australian cricketer, David Warner is one of them. The left-hander has been one of the most consistent performers of the league and it can be validated from his record of being the only cricketer to win the Orange Cap thrice. Besides his captaincy record is also quite impressive as he has a win rate of 55.31%.
Especially Warner enjoyed a dream-run in the 2016 IPL where he scored over 800 runs in the season. In true sense, the southpaw led the team from the front and his innings of unbeaten 93 in the playoffs against Gujarat Lions is enough to prove the point. Chasing a target of 160, the team suffered from a typical batting collapse and lost half of the side with just 85 runs on the scoreboard.
Fortunately for SRH, their skipper was looking in his elements. On a sluggish Delhi track, Warner played with utmost sensibility and guided the team to the safe waters. Like a true hero, he stayed till the end and earned the ticket to the IPL final. That innings will always be a special one in the IPL history as Warner transformed himself from an extraordinary player to an IPL legend. Thereafter, he also stroked a crucial half-century in the final and helped the team win their maiden title.
