Top 5 Leading Run Scorers in the IPL
#1. Suresh Raina
The man who hasn’t missed a single match in IPL so far. Suresh Raina is a consistent IPL scorer. His form in the international cricket may dwindle and he may be out of the national team but whenever he dons an IPL team jersey, you get to see an all-new Raina. Fearless and nonchalant and crucially reliant. A pillar for CSK and then the captain of Gujrat Lions, Raina has always scored runs for his IPL team. His consistency has made him the top IPL leading run scorers list. In the 157 innings, he has scored a total of 4540 runs and the best part of it, he is still playing for CSK this time.
#2. Virat Kohli
The Indian captain had a really slow start to his IPL career. A brash 19-year-old boy playing for RCB in his first season, Virat was looking just out of place and also out of touch. But no one can stop the Indian brat from scoring runs once he gets going. Over the years, Virat transformed himself and in the 9th season, he smashed 4 centuries. He stands second in the pedestal of most runs scored by batsmen in IPL.
#3. Rohit Sharma
Another Indian on the list. The hitman has come of age in IPL. Playing initially for now-defunct IPL side Deccan Chargers, Rohit set his initial footprints of a great batsman in making and over the years with MI, he has become the model that he once promised. The backbone of the team, he is the guy Mumbai Indians rely on to make runs. He has so far scored 4207 runs in the 142 matches.
