Even though Sachin Tendulkar was at the later stage of his career, he still managed to dish out some great performances in the 6 seasons he played. During his stint with Mumbai Indians, the classical but attacking batting genius showed how he is a force to reckon with even in the shortest format. At a time when everyone thought that he might end his career without an IPL title, MI finally managed to get that elusive trophy in 2013. If we look at how his performances directly influenced the MI team, then it might not be that great as his best season of 2010 (618 runs and Orange Cap winner) did not really help the team win the title.

Virat Kohli is the highest run-scorer in the IPL with a whopping run aggregate of 5412 runs and that should give you an idea of his incredibly consistent hitting record in the tournament. In 2016, he pretty much changed the definition of consistency in the shortest format by amassing a staggering haul of 973 runs from 16 matches at an unprecedented average of more than 80. He also hit 4 centuries in that particular season. Kohli showed the world how you can score at a strike rate over 170 just with classical shots this year. However, even with all these superlative performances, Kohli has never managed to lift that IPL trophy. He has been part of 3 losing finals and multiple bottom-two finishes. While some say that he does not have a great team to back him up, some say it is just pure lack of luck. It would be interesting to see if he wins an IPL title or not.
