IPL Most 50s; The Indian Premier League (IPL) has been graced by some of the biggest names in the game right from its inaugural edition in 2008. Every year, superstars from each part of the world assemble in India to take part in the biggest and the most successful T20 league in the world. Consequently, the level of cricket is very high in the IPL.

It is one of the reasons why one witnesses players scoring half-centuries on a regular basis in the IPL. Scoring a fifty is not very common in the shortest format of the game. But the high quality of cricket in IPL has made it possible. The first 50-plus score in the tournament was scored in the very first game of the IPL when Brendon McCullum played a monumental knock of 158.
