The IPL 2023 season broke many records not only in terms of TRP but also from batsmans point of view be it Rinku Singh’s five sixes in over or Jadeja’s last ball boundary to lift the trophy we have seen everything in this season of biggest t20 league of the world. Most importantly some legends of this game found their rhythm back major example can be Virat Kohli and MS. Dhoni. But the question you may have that is, who scored most runs in ipl 2023?
Who could have thought that some young players in this list like, Shubman Gill can dominate not only ipl but also in international cricket, let me tell you Gill was the only Indian player who scored most international runs in all formats in 2023 which is a good sign for Indian cricket.
Over the period of time, the competitiveness of this league is increasing day by day where we are witnessing some amazing young talents both in batting and bowling departments which makes bit tough for well known batters to continue their legacy but if they does, then we have to really appreciate that. Hence, let’s talk in detail about who made most runs in ipl 2023.
List Of Players Who Scored Most Runs In IPL 2023
1. Shubman Gill
Who thought that his lad will going to dominate not only IPL but International cricket also at very young age of his career, Shubman Gill is probably most improved young batsman in the past 2 years which made him to claim to elite title of most runs in IPL 2023 where he made 890 runs in 17 matches with the healthy strike rate of 157.80.
Moreover, he even hit three astonishing hundreds all came in crucial game which helped team to set pretty good target in throughout the season. One more thing to mention, can you believe he was just 80 runs short to broke the record of Virat Kohli’s 973 runs in a season, I think this is enough to describe what kind form he has having this year.
Furthermore, the plus point which Gill has over many other batsman’s that is, he has no technical error in his batting because he has trained with Rahul Dravid in his under 19 days which made him a complete player and knows very well how to dominate spinners and fast bowlers without going for risky shots.
2. Faf Du Plessis
The former South African captain and current RCB captain, Faf Du Plessis who turned 39 years old but his performance never declined unlike other old age batters. Faf Du Plessis has really exceptional in the whole tournament, he played 14 games in which he scored 730 runs and made his way at the 2nd place in this list of most runs in ipl 2023.
I think in whole ipl 2023 season, Faf Du Plessis carried the RCB’s batting department along with the Virat Kohli which might be the reason behind exclusion from playoffs. Faf has always gave his absolute best in every department of the game be it for Chennai Super Kings or Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Moreover, his technique is quite different from the rest of batters in terms of his batting stance, grip, and major use of bottom hand in his play, despite his odd technique he is pretty good batsman then those who follows book cricket.
3. Devon Conway
Coming from New Zealand where pitches are mostly fast bowling friendly with good amount of grass to playing for CSK on the pitch of Chepauk which is spin friendly wicket, Devon Conway has came really long way. The player who plays spinners very sensibly, has smashed 672 runs in 16 ipl games and grabbed 3rd position in terms of scoring most runs in ipl 2023.
Apart from Indian players, there are actually very few players who can play spin bowling very effectively and dominantly as well at the same time, Conway is one of them. I mean being a player who raised up playing on green wickets and then suddenly in IPL dominating the spinners that too in the Chennai’s wicket, that’s actually incredible.
Unlike New Zealand, India has mostly small cricket grounds but it offers various different condition which is quite difficult to adapt for any foreign player, but Devon Conway was something else as it did not bothered him.
Furthermore, talking about Conway’s best inning of ipl 2023, it came against the bowling attacks of the Punjab Kings and he effortlessly made 92 runs in 52 balls, unfortunately he missed his first IPL century by just 8 runs. Nevertheless, he may not have a ton, but he thoroughly contributed everything for CSK to lift the ipl title.
4. Virat Kohli
He is the same Virat Kohli who was struggling to even score a fifty from last two IPL season, but remember the quote which says “form is temporary, class is permanent” likewise Virat Kohli made his comeback with bang in ipl 2023 in the very first match of tournament where he scored 82 runs, which showed the sign of his amazing comeback.
Moreover, king Kohli scored 639 runs in 14 ipl matches in 2023 season which also includes 2-hundreds and 6-fifties in the account and became the 4th players in terms of thrashing most runs in ipl 2023. The one important thing which I noticed was, Kohli was adapting himself in this new era of T20 cricket while playing in the anchor role as well for team when it’s required.
5. Yashasvi Jaiswal
If you ever feel like you don’t have enough resources to achieve your goal just read the story of Jaiswal you will definitely become charged up. Jaiswal who used to sell pani puri on the roads of Mumbai to playing in the Wankhede Stadium in same city and smashing his first IPL hundred as well vs Mumbai Indians is truly inspiring.
The Rajasthan Royals opener, Jaiswal who gave many times a quick start to the innings, played 14 ipl games and made 625 runs with the banging strike rate of 163.62 in every inning. Therefore, He is featured in 5th place when it comes to scoring most runs in ipl 2023.
Furthermore, the crazy thing in this season was, Jaiswal overshadowed the cleanest white ball player of this generation Jos Buttler with his classy back to back inning. There was a time when RR fans used to had hopes on Buttler to score big, but now Jaiswal has completely changed this equation. Which shows the impact of this young player in this toughest t20 league.
To all those peoples, who thinks Jaiswal is bit immature in terms of playing big knock, then you should take an eye on his first test debut match which he played against West Indies and score 174 runs and won the man of the match award as well.
