1. AB De Villiers

AB De Villiers is the most dangerous batsman in the IPL. The South African icon is a crowd favorite, and he has fans from all teams. We put him first among the top ten most dangerous hitters because of his steady average or stupendous strike rate. ABD began his IPL career wearing a Delhi Daredevils uniform. A considerably younger ABD established a name for himself in 2009 when the format was still relatively new to cricket fans. He finished the second season with 465 runs, the most for DD, an average of 51.66, and a hundred in his record book. Unfortunately, despite ABD's steady excellence, RCB has yet to win the event.

2. Chris Gayle

When an already failing Pune Warriors India met Royal Challengers Bangalore at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in 2013, a large guy with a Spartan bat rushed onto the field. After a few moments, the first light of destruction shone off the huge guy, called Chris Gayle. Bad fortune was inscribed in bold for the Warriors, as the Universe Boss's celebration had begun. Chris Gayle, who hails from the West Indies, is frequently regarded as the face of Twenty20 cricket.

In the preceding match, he demonstrated why this is the case. On that day, he had the greatest individual T20 total – 175* (66b), which included seventeen thundering sixes and thirteen magnificent fours. He single-handedly led his team to the highest team total in IPL history by delivering the quickest century off 30 deliveries.

3. David Warner

We put David Warner at the number 3 position among the most dangerous batsmen in the IPL. David Warner is no less than a warrior who is frequently referred to as the most successful overseas batter in the IPL or any other league, has maintained a brash charm since his debut in cricket. He is still one of the few players in the Indian Premier League who have scored 5,000 runs. 

In his current team, Sunrisers Hyderabad, the Australian left-hander advanced from the middle order to bat as an opener. The booming lefty is a joy to see on any given day, thanks to a respectable career average and an excellent strike rate. Warner wore the Delhi Daredevils shirt from 2009 until 2013. Warner was signed by the Hyderabad team in 2014. Warner was crucial in boosting the batting order. As a consequence, Sunrisers Hyderabad won their first title, while Warner finished the season as the second-highest scorer with 848 runs.

4. Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli has been a member of Royal Challengers Bangalore since the IPL's inception in 2008. Furthermore, before the 2019 edition, he said that he may leave the same club when the time is right - his devotion to the IPL team is unrivaled. His improving performance encouraged confidence in RCB, and he was the sole striker who remained with the team in 2011. A year later, Kohli had started to show his real face with the batting and field, his commanding presence had propelled him to the level of global cricket, and he was promoted to captain of his team. 

Over the course of eight years, Kohli evolved as one of the most dangerous batters in the IPL. Kohli released the monster cricketer that resided within him in 2016. Kohli exploded 973 runs throughout the season, the highest by any batsmen in the history of IPL, with an average of 81.08, including four hundred. 

5. Mahendra Singh Dhoni

The franchise with the most followers in the IPL has to be Chennai Super Kings, and Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the reason for this. In his debut season, he guided his team to the finals and finished second, losing in a last-ball battle to the Rajasthan Royals. He had acquired the status of not just a worthy leader, but also one of the most dangerous batters in the Indian Premier League by this point.

Many people say that he is not one of the most dangerous batters in the IPL, but his consistency in accumulating runs in the T20 competition has proven them wrong. Dhoni has scored close to or more than 300 runs in virtually every season of the league. Dhoni was also the third-highest run-scorer in 2013, which is quite unusual for a lower-order batsman.
