South African wicketkeeper batsman and Mumbai’s opener Quinton de Kock has showed why he is important for MI in past few years. He is second most consistent batsmen for Mumbai in this IPL. He with Rohit Sharma provides a strong opening partnership which helps MI a lot.

1. Rohit Sharma (MI)

The hitman Rohit Sharma is facing the worst IPL season as captain because his team is at No.7 in points table and for a team like Mumbai Indians these rankings are really a shame for them. But the captain is leading from the front when it comes to bat. He is the highest run scorer for his team this season. He can score big today.
