IPL 2023: Records That May Be Beaten in This Year’s Tournament
The Indian Premier League (IPL) has been one of the most exciting and highly-anticipated sporting events in the world since its inception in 2008. IPL 2023 is set to be no exception, with the tournament set to showcase some of the best cricketing talents from around the globe.
As we eagerly await the start of the 16th edition of the IPL, let’s take a look at some of the records that may be broken during this year’s tournament.
Most Wickets in IPL
Dwayne Bravo currently holds the record for the most wickets in IPL with 183, but with his retirement, several players have a chance to surpass him during IPL 2023. Yuzvendra Chahal, Amit Mishra, Piyush Chawla, and Ravichandran Ashwin are all likely candidates to take the top spot for most wickets in IPL.
Most Fours in IPL
Shikhar Dhawan is the runaway leader for most fours in IPL history with 701, but Virat Kohli and David Warner are closing in on 600 fours in IPL. We can expect these three prolific batsmen to add more to their tally and potentially break the record for most fours in IPL 2023.
Most Sixes in IPL
Chris Gayle’s record of 357 sixes in IPL is unlikely to be broken any time soon, but Rohit Sharma could become the first Indian player to hit 250 sixes in the Indian Premier League if he manages to surpass AB de Villiers’ tally of 251 sixes.
Most Hattricks in IPL
Amit Mishra currently holds the record for most hattricks in IPL history with three, and with his return to the tournament this year, he has a chance of adding to his tally. However, this feat is a very difficult one to achieve.
Most Five-Wicket Hauls in IPL
James Faulkner holds the record for most five-wicket hauls in IPL with two, but there is a chance one of the many bowlers in the tournament can go level or overtake the former Australian pacer during the season.
Most Caps in IPL
Mahendra Singh Dhoni is currently the most capped player in IPL with 234 caps, and the Chennai Super Kings captain, who is possibly playing his last campaign, could become the first player to reach 250 appearances in the Indian Premier League if his team goes deep in the tournament.
Most Runs in IPL
Virat Kohli is the leading run-scorer in IPL with 6624 runs, followed by Shikhar Dhawan with 6244 runs. At least one of the two will break the 7000-run barrier this season, while David Warner and Rohit Sharma can cross the 6000-run mark. KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Sanju Samson, and Faf Du Plessis can all reach 4000 runs during IPL 2023, while Jos Buttler, Quinton de Kock, and Suryakumar Yadav can surpass 3000 runs in IPL. Hardik Pandya and Shubman Gill are also not far away from 2000 runs.
Most Fifties in IPL
David Warner’s record for most fifties with 54 is unlikely to be broken, but Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli have a chance of becoming the first Indian players to breach the 50 fifties mark in IPL.
Most Hundreds in IPL
Chris Gayle owns the record with six hundreds in the IPL, but that can be overtaken by any of Jos Buttler, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, and David Warner during IPL 2023. These four players have the potential to score big and reach the milestone of most hundreds in IPL history.
IPL 2023 is shaping up to be an exciting tournament, with many talented players set to take the field and break records. The likes of Chahal, Mishra, Chawla, and Ashwin will be vying to become the highest wicket-taker in IPL history, while Dhawan, Kohli, and Warner will be looking to add to their impressive tally of fours and fifties. Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma will be eyeing the record for most sixes by an Indian player, and many others will be hoping to make their mark in the tournament.
As always, IPL 2023 promises to be a spectacle of high-octane cricketing action, and we can’t wait to see these talented players battle it out on the field.
