2. Rohit Sharma (Captain)
Rohit Sharma is a modern-day giant in world cricket. After starting his career poorly, he has turned the tables completely. Currently, Sharma has made a name for himself in the history of the IPL as the most successful captain with five trophies. This is the most by any captain in the tournament. Well, Sharma has been the main man for the franchise over the years!
The Hitman, as they call him, is one of the most naturally gifted batsmen in the world. When it comes to the shorter format, there are only a few players who can match Sharma’s ball-striking ability. During his IPL career, Rohit has scored 5230 runs with a healthy strike-rate of 130.61. Adding on, he has the highest score of 109 not out at his very favorite Eden Gardens.
Even during the thirteenth season, Sharma collected 332 runs with a decent strike-rate of 127.69. This showcases that even after he gets injured, he manages to score fluently. Without any doubt, he is the captain of this team. Therefore, he makes it to this playing eleven!
