Since the inception of IPL in 2008, most batsmen have been used to facing all the bowlers since the tournament takes place every year. Due to that, the batsmen have learnt to pick their variations and milk them for runs. At times, they even succeed in pummelling the bowlers all over the park.

Over the years, several batsmen have taken their counterparts to the cleaners. It indeed takes plenty of games to get used to the variations and deceptions produced that bowlers come up with frequently. But it is also worth nothing that the short boundaries and batting-friendly pitches help the batsmen to milk the bowlers for boundaries.

We take a look five batsmen and most runs against a bowler in IPL:

Mumbai Indians’ captain Rohit Sharma is arguably one of the greatest and destructive opening batsmen in IPL. With 4910 IPL runs at a strike rate of 130.79, Rohit Sharma sits third in the list of highest run-getters. He has scored 146 runs against leg-spinner Piyush Chawla while conceding his wicket twice to the bowler.

Hence, Rohit is not only the most successful IPL captain but is also extraordinary with the bat. It is worth noting that Piyush Chawla is one of the most experienced spin-bowlers in IPL, having taken 151 wickets in 158 games. Chawla has played for Kolkata Knight Riders, Kings XI Punjab, and will play for Chennai Super Kings in the IPL 2020.
