    Snapshot: The best finishers of IPL 6

    • Think of finishes and the first name that comes to mind is the 'ice man' MS Dhoni. CSK's skipper has played some sublime cameos at the death when setting totals and chasing victories, with a best of 60 not out off 37 balls. (BCCI)

    • Chris Gayle has finished off matches almost single-handedly in IPL 6. His unbeaten 85 off 50 balls hastened victory over KKR and a patient unbeaten 49 sealed victory over Rajasthan Royals. Both were vastly different innings with the same motive – victory. (BCCI)

    • 'Sir' Ravindra Jadeja's cool demeanor came in very handy. Jadeja remained not out on 38 off 20 balls to pull off a penultimate-ball heist over RCB in Chennai and later made 36 off 13 balls to beat KKR in another thriller. (BCCI)

    • South African David Miller has proved immensely valuable for Kings XI Punjab with his ability to steady the innings and accelerate at the death. His 80 off 41 balls to seal a superb win over Pune Warriors was outstanding and 34 off 39 against Delhi Daredevils a composed effort. Then came his 38-ball century to deliver a stunning win over RCB.(BCCI)

    • RCB captain Virat Kohli has helped seal victories with his remarkable composure and ability to score at a rapid pace throughout his innings. A 47-ball 93 not out was Kohli's best innings in a chase. (BCCI)

    • Rookie 18-year-old batsman Sanju Samson has had an eye-catching debut season with scores of 27 not out and 63 in superb chases for Rajasthan Royals. (BCCI)

    • Rajasthan allrounder Stuart Binny has played some cool cameos under pressure, the pick of the lot being an excellent unbeaten 32 off just 13 balls to seal a thrilling win over Pune. (BCCI)
