This year's competition will have a different feel as it will not see thousands cheering their respective teams on different venues in India.
The 13th edition of the cash-rich T20 league will be played on three different venues in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), starting on September 19 with the match between defending champion Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings.
Here are five players who might not be the most expensive in the competition but surely possess the ability to produce the goods when it matters the most.
