He has scored over 4000 runs over the years in the IPL, with 35 half-centuries and 3 hundreds at a strike-rate in the low 140s and an impressive average of 40.55. Warner has been a key player at the top of the order for the franchises he has represented - Delhi Daredevils from 2009 to 2013, and the Sunrisers Hyderabad since 2014. Warner had an average first season with the Daredevils, scoring at an average of 23, and a relatively low strike rate in the 120s.

This position is shared by two amazing non-Indians players of our franchise. But one of them created history first as he scored the 733 scores earlier in 2012 and in lesser time/matches. The player is Chris Gayle. Making this score in 15 games with one century on 456 balls. Michael Hussey made the same score in 2013 on 566 balls in 17 matches with no century.

Hussey is also widely known by his nickname 'Mr Cricket'. Hussey was a relative latecomer to both the one-day international and Test Australian teams, debuting at 28 and 30 years of age in the respective formats, with 15,313 first-class runs before making his Test debut.

Gayle averages 37.55 in 422 innings at an impressive strike rate of 146.06. He is a legend in cricket and will forever be remembered as one of the greatest to play the format. However, Gayle has not been in the best of forms in T20 internationals recently.

Kane Williamson

Williamson makes the most of it when given the chance to play. One of those cases made history in 2018 when he joined 516 balls for 735, the season's highest result in 17 games with no century. From player to captain, Williamson is the famous Fab4 from IPL.

Virat Kohli

"Holds the 1st rank in the list

of Most runs in an IPL Season"

IPL is evidence of how run-maker top-order batsman has evolved over his career. Virat is rightfully called the Machine as he has the most scores ever in all seasons – 973. The rowdy player set this achievement in season 2016. Virat has been by RCB‘s side from his initial years. He has been the highest-paid cricketer in IPL. Kohli made this whooping score in 16 matches facing 640 balls and four centuries. His highest score for the season was 113.

We have a long way togo as diehardIndians. I would like Indian players to be on top of an Indian series.
