|3. Quinton de Kock
|4. AB de Villiers
|5. KL Rahul
5. KL Rahul (132 Runs Not Out – 69 Balls)
Top 5 players are what people see the most. KL Rahul has just grabbed the fifth position that describes his distinguished career and skill as a batter. When playing for the Punjab Kings team, KL Rahul made a whopping score of 132 runs at just 69 balls. Since he was Not Out, he might have scored more and beat the score of de Villiers, if given the chance.
4. AB de Villiers (133 Runs Not Out – 59 Balls)
Next in line is AB de Villiers with 133 Runs not out. His score is just 1 run ahead of KL Rahul. AB de Villiers has several other heartwarming records in the batting category for IPL. Having the highest score in IPL is another feather in his cap. It is believed that he is one of the most valuable players that Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) has as a team. He has never let the team down, especially when it comes to defending a big score in an important match.
3. Quinton de Kock (140 Runs Not Out – 70 Balls)
The third batter in line for the Highest Score in IPL is Quinton de Kock. He is one of the most popular South African cricketers. His batting skills are often talked about and a big advantage for the Lucknow SuperGiants. His score of 140 runs Not out is not too far from de Villiers as well. It took him 70 balls to make the record. He made his debut in 2012 and since then there has been no looking back.
2. Brendon McCullum (158 Runs Not Out – 73 Balls)
Brendon McCullum has the second highest score in IPL matches. He made a big score of 158 runs and was not ‘Out’ before the balls ran out. It took him 73 balls to make the runs and reach the second highest position. McCullum is a New Zealand cricketer who plays on behalf of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). He is one of the best cricketers for the NZ international team and has proven to be a boon for a troubled team as well.
1. Chris Gayle (175 Runs Not Out – 66 Balls)
Chris Gayle should be called the God of Batters. There is practically no record made without his name being mentioned. Gayle has a score that some fans believe cannot be broken. He scored a big number of 175 runs and was not out. Is there a possibility of a double century here? Who can ever know? Gayle could have made a better record. He is the only batter who could pile up this record in just 66 balls. He is a blessing for RCB and who can ever know what more he could do with more balls in his corner, in this match?
