IPL Records – Highest Strikes Rates



IPL Records and Statistics: Which players have recorded the highest strike rates in the IPL history?

When we talk about the highest strike rates of a batter, we can make many assumptions on the true meaning of the concept. The strike rates mean the capability of a batter to score runs as quickly as possible. Especially in the T20 where the number of balls are less, the batters with the highest strike rates are deemed to be the most successful in assisting their team. It is calculated by checking out the number of runs scored per 100 balls that the batter faces. The higher the strike rates, the more skilled the batter is. Some of the legendary players have carried strike rates that cannot be broken even today.
