Highest Individual Score in IPL Since 2008

Times of sports(TOS) has listed players with the highest individual runs in the Indian Premier League(IPL) Since 2008. The inaugural edition of the IPL kick-started with a blistering inning by Kiwi-man Brendon McCullum.

The opener, playing for KKR, hit a 73-ball 158, to set the tone for the seasons to come. Since then, many batters auditioned to put their stake in the glory board but only a few could manage to stamp their franchise.

The Indian Premier League is a Twenty20 (T20) competition in men’s cricket. Organised by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), the tournament has taken place every year since it was first held in 2008.

Several teams went in and out of the tournament at different years, while the names of some teams were changed. The tournament format has always been a round-robin format, where each team plays with each other team twice, each match in either of the team’s home ground.

Chris Gayle on Top of the List:
