IPL started in 2008. It has been over a decade, and now this franchise is minting money, the players too. One does not have to wait for years to witness a match where players from different countries come under an India-invented game series. It happens every year and is now like a festival. There’s a craze about it before it begins, and then there’s a feeling of emptiness when it ends. We start to look for something to invest in our daily screen routine. IPL is where outstanding records are created every year, in every match and by many teams. One such record can be the highest scorer of a season. Without wasting any more time, have a look at the top 5 Players to score the most runs in an IPL season.
Let’s look at the Top 5 Players to Score the Most Runs in an IPL Season
1. Virat Kohli – Holds the 1st rank in the list of Most runs in an IPL Season
IPL is evidence of how run-maker top-order batsman has evolved over his career. Virat is rightfully called the Machine as he has the most scores ever in all seasons – 973. The rowdy player set this achievement in season 2016. Virat has been by RCB’s side from his initial years. He has been the highest-paid cricketer in IPL. Kohli made this whooping score in 16 matches facing 640 balls and four centuries. His highest score for the season was 113.
2. Kane Williamson
Williamson makes the most of it when given a chance to play. One such case made history in 2018 as he hit 516 balls to score 735, the highest score of the season, in 17 matches with no century. He has made Sunrisers Hyderabad proud, from being a player to becoming the captain. Williamson is the famed Fab4 of IPL.
3. Chris Gayle & Michael Hussey
This position is shared by two amazing non-Indians players of our franchise. But one of them created history first as he scored the 733 scores earlier in 2012 and in lesser time/matches. The player is Chris Gayle. Making this score in 15 games with one century on 456 balls. Michael Hussey made the same score in 2013 on 566 balls in 17 matches with no century.
4. David Warner
The proud captain of Sunrisers Hyderabad made his highest IPL score in 2019 – 692. David made this record in record 12 matches with one century on 481 balls. 2019 was his best IPL performance. Warner has helped the team have a spot among the Top 5 teams of the franchise.
5. KL Rahul
Rahul’s best performance among all seasons was in 2020, with a score of 670. This is not only his highest score for the 2020 season but also for all the seasons he played. He made the runs in 14 matches on 518 balls, with one century. KL holds the key to his team’s fortunes. The 2021 season looks promising for him and his team, Punjab Kings.
We have a long way ahead of us as hardcore Indians I would want Indians players to be in top in an Indian franchise.
