#1. Ravindra Jadeja – 24 Runs Out

Chennai Super Kings all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja is arguably one of the best fielders in world cricket today. His rocket arm has accounted for many dazzling run-outs over the years. In 160 IPL matches, Jadeja has been involved in a record 24 run-outs. 

His ability to release the ball quickly and hit the stumps from almost any angle makes Jadeja a dangerous opponent on the field. CSK has gained a lot from Jadeja’s athleticism and accuracy in the outfield. At just 33 years of age, Jadeja could potentially finish his IPL career with the most run-outs by a fielder.

#2. MS Dhoni – 22 Runs Out

Legendary skipper MS Dhoni has always been quick on his feet behind the wickets. His lightning-fast hands have completed some unbelievable stumpings in all formats. So it’s no surprise that Dhoni has the second most run outs by a fielder in IPL history. 

In 205 IPL matches, Dhoni has inflicted 22 run-outs with his rapid glove-work and pinpoint throwing accuracy. Even at the age of 41, Dhoni remains one of the sharpest keepers in the game. His presence behind the stumps continues to instill pressure on opposition batsmen.He is also best finisher in IPL history.

#3. Virat Kohli – 19 Runs Out

Former Indian skipper Virat Kohli is renowned as one of the fittest athletes in cricket. His high fitness standards reflect in his agile movements across the field. Kohli’s athletic fielding has seen him take some sensational catches over the years. He also has a powerful throwing arm which has helped him run-out batsmen from impossible angles.

In 205 IPL matches, Kohli has accounted for 19 run-outs- which places him 3rd on this elite list. His energy and intensity on the field make Kohli a challenging player to face. Even during RCB’s poor seasons, Kohli led by example through his fielding brilliance.

# 4. Suresh Raina – 16 Runs Out

Suresh Raina is the leading run-getter among Indian batsmen in IPL history. But not many know that Raina is also one of the best fielders the tournament has seen. In his 206 IPL matches, Raina has snapped up 16 run-outs. 

Despite being a middle-order batsman, Raina is always on high alert in the infield. His sharp reflexes combined with aggressive approach makes him an outstanding close-in fielder. Throughout CSK’s successful years, Raina made significant contributions on the field along with scoring 5000+ runs with the bat.

# 5. Manish Pandey

Manish Pandey has gradually developed into a gun fielder for whichever IPL franchise he has played for. Representing Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore, Pandey has been involved in 16 run-outs in his 164 IPL matches. 

Currently, playing for Lucknow Super Giants, the 32-year old Pandey is still one of the fittest Indian cricketers around. His work ethic and dedication to fielding have yielded great rewards over the years. We could see Pandey climb higher up this elite fielding list in the coming IPL seasons.


So that concludes our list of the top 5 fielders with the most run-outs in IPL history. Next time you watch an IPL match live or on TV, keep an eye out for players like Jadeja, Dhoni, Kohli, Raina and Pandey – they could pull off a spectacular run-out when you least expect it!
