Today we discuss about the best 5 batsmen in IPL 2020. Since its inception in 2008, the Indian Premier League has been the breeding ground for the most precocious batting talents in the country as well as internationally. Some of the finest batsmen to have ever played the game of cricket have graced the stage with memories that will forever be etched in the minds of the cricket lovers.
Be it Sachin Tendulkar’s fantastic hundred for Mumbai Indians or a certain unheralded Brendon Mccallum plummeting his way to the top of the scoring charts with an explosive 158 in the opening game of the tournament against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
This would be the 13th edition of the tournament and would again feature some of the finest batting talents in the world today. Following is a list of the best 5 batsmen in IPL 2020. The list is subjective and is completely based on current form and performance in the tournament in the recent past.
David Warner (Sunrisers Hyderabad)
The explosive Australian opener has been a vital cog for the Sunrisers since the time he has been a part of the franchise. He has provided the much-required stability at the top of the order churning out incredible innings one after another in the past editions of the tournament. Warner is an extremely potent player of spin bowling and is an expert at playing at slow tracks- something that augurs well for the conditions in which the games would be played.

Virat Kohli (Royal Challengers Bangalore)
It sounds strange when you make a list of the best batsmen across any format and you exclude this modern-day run machine who has won countless matches for India and Royal Challengers Bangalore single-handedly over the last part of the decade. The best batsman in modern-day cricket, Kohli’s determination and will to succeed makes him stand apart from his contemporaries.
He is one of the highest run-scorers in the history of the tournament with one of the highest aggregates of hundreds scored. He has been the marquee player of RCB for the last 6 years now and is aiming to make an impact with the bat. The coveted IPL trophy is something Virat would be eager to lay his hands on.

Rohit Sharma (Mumbai Indians)
A man who is synonymous with excellence in shorter formats of the game, there is no doubt about the fact that there have been very few players who can create as much havoc and destruction on the cricket field with his bat than Rohit Sharma. When he is on the song, you just feel like sitting down and admiring him.

This time with the opportunity of getting to bat at the top of the order, Shubhman would look to capitalize on the opportunity. Among the best 5 batsmen in IPL 2020.
KL Rahul (Kings XI Punjab)
