3 IPL Records that are impossible to break

As the 17th season of the IPL approaches, cricket enthusiasts eagerly await thrilling matches and the potential shattering of records. However, amidst the excitement, three IPL records stand as nearly impossible feats. Let’s explore these remarkable achievements.

RCB’s Dynamic Duo: Kohli and de Villiers (IPL 2016)

One of the most extraordinary partnerships in IPL history happened during the 2016 season when Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers combined forces to go against the Gujarat Lions. Facing initial struggles, the “brothers of destruction,” scored a massive 229-run partnership. Kohli scored an astonishing 109 runs, while de Villiers smashed a spectacular 129 off just 52 deliveries. This formidable union drove Bangalore to an impressive total of 248, securing victory over the Lions by 144 runs.

King Kohli’s Unforgettable 973 (IPL 2016)

In IPL’s 2016 season. Kohli showcased his batting skills by amassing an astounding 973 runs from 16 matches. This remarkable performance earned him the Orange Cap as the leading run-scorer, despite RCB losing the final to SRH. Kohli’s dominance included an exceptional achievement of scoring four centuries, a record that remains unmatched in any single edition of the tournament. His reign as the ‘King’ of Indian cricket during that IPL season remains etched in the league’s history.

Gayle and Jadeja’s Historic 37 runs in a single over

The IPL witnessed a historic moment in 2011 when Chris Gayle, playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore, hammered Kerala bowler Prashanth Parameswaran for 37 runs in a single over. A decade later, in 2021, Ravindra Jadeja replicated this feat by smashing 37 runs in an over bowled by Harshal Patel. To surpass this record, a batsman would need an extraordinary combination of skill and luck to score 38 runs in an over, making it a seemingly impossible achievement. Gayle’s performance in 2011 made him the tournament’s leading run-scorer with 608 runs in 12 matches.

As cricket fans eagerly anticipate the upcoming IPL season, these three records serve as proof of the exceptional performances of these players in the league’s rich history. Breaking these records would undoubtedly require extraordinary skill, determination, and a bit of cricketing magic.
