Indian Premier League (IPL) is not only a very popular tourney in India but also in the entire cricket world. Since the introduction of IPL in 2008, it has brought many talented cricketers to the limelight. Also, many top cricketers have maintained their familiar class in this lucrative league.

Some of the cricketers performed superbly, particularly in one IPL season. In that particular season, they were one of the heroes of their respective teams, but they failed to keep delivering in the other IPL seasons. Well, some of them even hugely struggled to retain their spots in the playing XI for the rest of IPL seasons.

Here, we are talking about those five cricketers who had an only good season in IPL career.

While Rajasthan Royals (RR) won the inaugural IPL (2008), Swapnil Asnodkar played an important role for his team. The right-handed batsman scored 311 runs in nine matches with an average 34.55 (strike-rate 133.47). He hit two half-centuries in that season, including the best of 60.
