Virat Kohli has scored the most runs in IPL history. He has amassed 5426 runs in the Indian Premier League so far at an average of 37.84 and that includes 5 centuries as well.
IPL has been the premier franchise-based tournament in cricket ever since its inaugural edition in 2008. This tournament has gone on to make the careers of several players.
Performances in the IPL matter a lot and that’s why consistent performers in this league over the years have gone on to become established international players as well.
The IPL has turned out to be a turning point in the careers of many great batsmen like AB de Villiers. So let’s take a look at the list of highest run scorers in IPL history.
Suresh Raina has the second most number of runs in IPL history after Kohli. In fact, he was the highest run-getter throughout the first 11 editions of the IPL until Kohli took him over last season.
Mumbai Indians’ skipper Rohit Sharma and Sunrisers Hyderabd captain David Warner follow next in the list at third and fourth respectively.
