Cricket is now all about Centuries and Half Centuries and wickets taken. People focus mainly on balls, not for the bowler but on how a batsman has hit it and how far it has been hit. The harder batsman hit, the more sixes and fours they hit. The more sixes and fours are hit, the more centuries and half-centuries are made. Half-centuries are hit before hitting a century. Let us have a look at IPL players who made the most FIFTIES.
