One of the highest scorers in this IPL, his strike-rate, and a slight matter of wicketkeeping to boot.
The most consistent Indian batsman on show, Raina narrowly missed out on becoming IPL's first Indian centurion. Terrific fielder, bowled economically too.
Scored fifties galore when Mumbai Indians lost wickets early. Live-wire of a fielder.
Makes the XI more for his bowling efforts than batting. Although he did give the cherry a fair pounding.
Made impossible run chases possible or came ridiculously close. Had a hat-trick to boot as well as other crucial wickets.
Rajasthan's lone shining star this season. Batted with sense, can bowl tight overs and fields well.
The captain of the tournament, Kumble took over with Bangalore sliding down the ranks ever so quickly. Perhaps the best spinner on show in the IPL too.
Despite a stellar show, was disappointing not to see him in India's World T20 squad. Swung the ball a mile, took wickets by the heaps.
Regained his form and how. Used the slower ball to terrific effect at the death.
The best bowler in the IPL. Was impossible to get him away. Can bowl yorker upon yorker and follow up with a superbly disguised slower ball.
Hayden has been the undisputed No. 1 when it has come to opening the innings in this IPL, Orange Cap or not.
