Fans have always enjoyed mountains of runs scored by a batting team. But fans are more eager to see which player wins the orange cap. This cap is given to the batter who has scored the most number of runs in a season. In this article, we will look at the top 5 players with the most runs in a single season. Let’s look at 5 Top Players with the Most runs in a single season in IPL.
List of Top 5 Players with Most runs in a single season in IPL History
5. David Warner
David Warner has always been one of the top scorers in IPL history. In the 2019 season, David scored 692 runs in just 12 games for Sunrisers Hyderabad. David had formed an excellent opening partnership with Jonny Bairstow in the 2019 season. This season of 692 runs for David helps him to sit at number 5 in the list of most runs in a single season of IPL.
4. Michael Hussey
Michael Hussey, another left-handed Aussie batter is on the list and he ranks at number 4. ‘Huss’ had a special season of 2013 with CSK where he accumulated 733 runs in 16 games. CSK has a rich tradition of left-hand opening overseas batters. Now, this tradition will be continued by Devon Convoy in the season 2022.
3. Chris Gayle
Chris Gayle features at number 3 in the list of batters with most runs in a single season of IPL. Gayle Storm had a fabulous season in 2012 for RCB. He plundered 733 runs in 15 games. Mike Hussy does have the same number of runs, but as Gayle has scored them in one match less than Mike, makes him occupy the 3rd spot.
2. Kane Williamson
Kane Williamson never gives any impression that he could be a successful T20 batter. But over the years, he has proved everyone wrong. Despite not having any unorthodox shot in his book, he keeps scoring runs at an exceptional rate. In the 2018 IPL, playing for SRH, Kane had scored 735 runs in 17 games which is the 2nd highest number of runs in a single season of IPL.
1. Virat Kohli
Virat Kohli had a record-shattering season in 2016 when he plundered 973 runs in just 16 games. This is really an incredible figure. The man had 4 centuries in the same season. He was going through the purple patch not only in the IPL but at an international stage as well. This mountain of 973 runs doesn’t seem to get defeated by any batter in the future.
