Top 10: Batsmen with Most Balls Faced in IPL

In this article, we will look at the list of top 10 players who have faced the most number of balls in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL). IPL needs no introduction. It is also known as the Festival of cricket in India. It’s the best T20 league around the globe, where superstars face each other.

No batsman likes getting out early. Usually, top-order batsmen are responsible for doing the bulk of the run-scoring for their IPL teams. To score more and more runs, they need to face more balls and pace their innings according to the situation and demands of the game. Some batsmen like to play with the intent of the first ball, while some like to take their time initially and then accelerate later on.

Virat Kohli, David Warner, Chris Gayle, AB De Villiers, MS Dhoni, and Suresh Raina are some of the legendary batsmen in the history of IPL.
