Most Fours in IPL History

The IPL is a powerhouse of cricket, known for its explosive batting and jaw-dropping sixes. But there’s another kind of hero on the pitch – the master of boundaries! These batters weave their magic by consistently finding the ropes, keeping the scoreboard ticking, and putting pressure on the opposition. The 17th edition is set to kick off on Friday, March 22, 2024, as defending champions Chennai Super Kings lock horns with the Royal Challengers Bangalore in Chennai, look at this quick rundown of the IPL’s top boundary hitters:

 

Shikhar Dhawan (750 fours)

Nicknamed ‘Gabbar,’ Dhawan tops the chart with a staggering 750 boundaries. While not a six-hitting machine, his ability to find the gaps and rotate the strike is legendary. He has played 216 innings, smashing 6617 runs at an average of 35.38 with 50 half-centuries and 2 hundreds.

 

David Warner (646 fours)

Following Dhawan closely is the explosive David Warner, another master of the boundary. With 646 fours, he’s a constant threat, keeping bowlers on their toes with his powerful strokes. He’s also got a taste for big scores, having slammed 6397 runs in 176 innings at an average of 41.53 with 4 centuries and 61 half-centuries in the IPL.

 

Virat Kohli (643 fours)

Then there’s the ever-reliable Virat Kohli! Arguably the best batsman of this generation, Kohli is not just about big hits, but a master of all trades. His impressive 643 boundaries showcase his ability to find the gaps consistently. Virat Kohli has smashed 7263 runs in 229 innings at an average of 37.24 with 50 half-centuries and 7 centuries to his name in the IPL.

 

Rohit Sharma (554 fours)

The joint-most successful captain in IPL history, Rohit Sharma brings elegance to the crease. With 554 boundaries, Sharma finds himself at no. 4 in the list. His right-handed batting has been key to Mumbai Indians’ five IPL titles. He finds the fence without taking unnecessary risks. Sharma has smashed 6211 runs in 238 innings at an average of 29.57 including 42 half—centuries and 1 century in the IPL.

 

Suresh Raina (506 fours)

Rounding out the top five is Mr. IPL himself, Suresh Raina! Raina has amassed a massive 506 boundaries for Chennai Super Kings. Known for his consistency, Raina has been a vital part of CSK’s batting line-up, building partnerships and keeping the scoreboard ticking with his clever strokes. Raina has scored 5528 runs at an average of 32.51 including 1 century and 39 half-centuries in 5528 innings.
