Top 10: Most Runs for RCB in IPL (Overall)

If there is one team in IPL known for its volatility, it is Royal Challengers Bangalore. Be it their on-field performance or the auction-table player drafting; they have been at both ends, to be honest. For instance, RCB possesses both the tournament’s highest and lowest team scores.

Even if you take the top six individual scores in the tournament history, there are 4 entries from RCB and one against them.

You can almost call it Virat Kohli’s RCB. Virat, who handed in his notice from captaincy last year, is the only player in the tournament history to play for a single team throughout. He also led the team from 2012 to 2021, a period of 10 years. Here are the records that Virat Kohli owns in the league.

Coming back to the topic, Virat Kohli leads the run-scoring chart for RCB in IPL, and he leads by a significant margin. Here are the top ten leading runs scorers for the Bangalore-based franchise.
