Despite being bought for the base price in the IPL 2023 Auction, he consistently delivered outstanding performances. Rinku scored 474 runs at an impressive average of around 60 and a strike rate of 150. He displayed his prowess by hitting five sixes off Yash Dayal at the Motera, turning an improbable victory into reality.

In IPL 2023, the 31-year-old Kiwi batsman Devon Conway has showcased his class. With 585 runs from 14 games at a strike rate of 138, he has displayed remarkable consistency. Scoring six fifties this season, Conway carries on the legacy of Faf Du Plessis for the Super Kings in IPL. His ability to score runs on challenging pitches makes him a strong contender for the Orange Cap.
4. David Warner:
Once again, the IPL has witnessed the brilliance of David Warner, the greatest overseas batter in the league’s history. In the absence of Rishabh Pant, Warner led the Delhi Capitals franchise in IPL 2023. With 516 runs at a decent strike rate of 131, including six fifties in 14 games, Warner’s class shone through. Although he lacked support from his partners in the initial games, resulting in DC’s five consecutive losses, Warner’s contributions were undeniable.
5. Tilak Verma:
At just 20 years old, Tilak Verma is an upcoming star in Indian cricket. Hailing from Hyderabad, he showcased his talent by winning a few games for the Mumbai Indians at the start of IPL 2023. Unfortunately, an injury in the second half of the tournament hampered his progress. Nonetheless, Verma scored 274 runs at a strike rate of 158 and received high praise within the Mumbai Indians camp. His ability to hit 18 sixes in just nine games highlights his immense potential.
6. Ishan Kishan:
After being bought by the Mumbai Indians for 15.25 Cr in the IPL auction 2022, Ishan Kishan provided a flying start to the team this season. Scoring 439 runs in 14 games, he showcased his consistency with three half-centuries. Kishan’s impactful contributions, including valuable 20s and 30s, came at a strike rate of 143. His presence in the batting lineup instils confidence in the entire team. Notably, his innings of 75 off 41 balls against PBKS in a must-win game were instrumental in the victory.
7. Shivam Dube:
Under the captaincy of Dhoni, Shivam Dube has been a beast this season. With 385 runs and an average of 39, he has dominated the middle overs. Playing 14 games with a strike rate of 160, Dube has been smashing the spinners with authority. Accompanied by three half-centuries, his redemption in the IPL has been truly inspirational.
8. Venkatesh Iyer:
Venkatesh Iyer, known for his impactful performances as an “Impact Player” for KKR, has lived up to his reputation. Scoring 404 runs at a strike rate of around 140, he left a lasting impression. Iyer’s century against Mumbai Indians at Wankhede Stadium, where he scored 104 runs, showcased his exceptional skill. Despite his outstanding individual performance, his team ended up on the losing side. Impressively, Iyer smashed 21 sixes throughout the tournament.
9. Nitish Rana:
A 29-year-old cricketer from Delhi, Nitish Rana stepped up as the leader of the Kolkata Knight Riders franchise in the absence of Shreyas Iyer. Rana had a phenomenal IPL season, excelling both as a player and captain. Despite critics underestimating his captaincy skills, he silenced them with his on-field performances. Rana managed his bowlers astutely and scored 413 runs at a strike rate of around 150.
