IPL 2021: 5 Players With Most Boundaries In The History Of The Tournament
Rishabh Pant (15 Fours)
Rishabh Pant holds the 5th spot in this list with 15 boundaries in an innings. There are 4 more players with exact 15 boundaries in an innings but since Rishabh Pant hit more sixes than the others, he earns a place in this list. The left-handed batsman Pant hit 15 boundaries in IPL 2018 in a match against Sunrisers Hyderabad. The wicket-keeper batsman Pant smashed 15 boundaries and 7 sixes for his fabulous knock of 128 runs.
With his unbeaten knock, the wicket-keeper batsman Pant took Delhi Capitals’ score to 187/5 in 20 overs. This knock is still Pant’s highest score and only century in IPL so far. However, Pant’s heroics were wasted as Delhi Capitals ended on a losing end in the match. Sunrisers Hyderabad’s Shikhar Dhawan (92) and Kane Williamson (83) smashed half-centuries to grab the victory by 9 wickets.
