The Indian Premier League (IPL) will be back with its 16th edition to entertain avid supporters in March-April. In the tournament, nine teams will strive to snatch the trophy from the Hardik Pandya-led Gujarat Titans (GT), who are the defending champions. At the mini-auction in December, the franchises did some record purchases, spending an enormous amount to strengthen their sides. In the upcoming tournament, the teams will expect their players to be marvellous and deliver their best to win the title. However, these teams will have to bolster every department to make it possible.

In the last 15 editions of the tournament, cricket fans have witnessed how the finishers have played an imperative role in their team’s victories. The most successful IPL sides, such as Mumbai Indians (MI), Chennai Super Kings (CSK), and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have reaped the benefits of having top finishers in their arsenal. In the 2022 edition, the current IPL champions Gujarat Titans (GT) also gained advantage of having some quality finishers. In the upcoming edition, the franchises will count on their players who could take them home with their sensational match-finishing abilities. 

Here are the rankings of the top 10 finishers ahead of IPL 2023

In 2020, Rahul Tewatia hit the headlines when the left-hand batter turned the match against Punjab Kings (PBKS) in Rajasthan Royals' favour. With his outstanding innings of 53 runs off 31 deliveries, the Haryana-born helped his team to chase a target of 224 with three balls to spare. The memorable innings soared Tewatia’s popularity as he became a household name.

In the 2022 mini-auction, Gujarat Titans (GT) signed Tewatia at a hefty amount of INR 9 crore. Trusting his power-hitting abilities, the franchise assigned him the task of fortifying the batting line-up with his match-finishing skills. Batting in the lower order for GT, Tewatia looked impressive scoring 217 runs in 12 innings at a spectacular strike rate of 147.61.

Against Punjab Kings (PBKS), Tewatia showed his brilliance again as he rescued his team from a defeat with his two back-to-back sixes. The talented left-hander took his team home against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) as well, with his 43-run innings off 25 deliveries. Witnessing his batting displays last season, the team management will expect him to be efficient in the upcoming tournament too.
