The Indian Premier League (IPL) is a massive tournament in the country’s domestic circuit where players from around the globe grace their presence. The retention ceremony and the auction recently came to a close where franchises strained every sinew for building a strong squad for the eleventh season of the league. The extravaganza has been a witness to several cricketers plying their trade over the ten editions. Some of the players have shown great loyalty as well, sticking and performing for the same side over and over again.
However, only a few of them managed to display consistency for a substantial length of time. They have been exemplary in their respective departments and have emerged as legendary figures in the history of the tournament. Most of these players have also made it big in terms of their international sides, something that we’ve seen and cherished over the years in international cricket for India and other nations as well.
In this post, we take you through some of the best players who have made it to the best XI in the IPL across all seasons.
1. David Warner
David Warner has been an eminent figure in the Indian Premier League. The Aussie batsman made his debut in 2009 for the Delhi Daredevils and played some wonderful knocks for the franchise. Thereafter, he played five seasons for them. In 2014 he was bagged by the Sunrisers Hyderabad and has been a vital cog in their lineup ever since.
The left-handed batsman has arguably been Hyderabad’s most consistent batsman. He was crowned as the skipper of the team in 2015. In the following year, he captained his side to glory by beating the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Final. The cricketer has been retained by the franchise ahead of the next season and is expected to replicate his form from the previous edition.
