IPL Records: Most Runs Against Each Team

IPL IPL 2023


IPL Records and Statistics: Which players have scored the Most Runs Against Each Team?

When we talk about batters, we also check out the team that they represent and against which team the maximum number of records have been made. Taking this into consideration, the batters can often play better against a specific team when compared to others. This straight away depends on the capabilities of the bowlers and the kind of balls that they throw at the batters. If the bowlers are weak, the batter can definitely make more runs. With the old bowlers, the batters can even judge what kind of balls they should expect to come their way. When this happens, batters can be prepared in advance and make sure that they are scoring the maximum number of runs that they can. 

Khelraja is fascinated with the records that have been made by batters over the course of time. These stats showcase how much trust one can place in a batter and how they will perform in the future as well. If batters and bowlers are good, higher confidence can be levied in the future of a team. The following table shows the maximum runs a batter has made against a particular team:

No other batter has been able to fight the beautiful bowlers of the DD until now, the way that Kohli has done. 

  1. Shikhar Dhawan (1,057 Runs against CSK)

It has never been easy to beat the CSK. So, when Shikhar Dhawan stands with a total number of runs of 1,057 against the CSK, it calls for a huge round of applause. Dhawan has played on behalf of several teams in the past. But whenever he played against CSK, he scored well. The record was made from the start of the IPL with 29 matches/innings. Dhawan is truly one of the biggest legends in IPL until now. 

  1. David Warner (1,075 Runs against KKR)

David Warner never falls short of giving his name as one of the record owners in any format of cricket today. With this record, Warner indicates that he is one of the best batters that any team can rely on. When playing against the KKR, he has made the maximum number of runs as a batter. No other player has made more than 1075 runs against any other team since the start of the IPL matches back in 2008. Warner definitely deserves a big recognition for his efforts.
