A destructive beefer in the most gruelling format of the game, Jonny Bairstow can almost single-handedly flip the fortunes of a contest.

Add to this an overwhelming 5 centuries in T20 cricket that makes him a valuable addition to the ranks of the Titans.

#5 Moeen Ali

A ferocious striker of the cherry, a complete wrecker in the middle-order and an absolute sweetheart of a man. He is one of the leading T20 monikers in the shortest format of the game and he continues to drive his respective teams to glory. He was retained by Chennai Super Kings to continue with their relentless pursuit of excellence.
