Cricketers, especially batters, when in form, can have a dream tournament. This article will talk about batters at the peak of their career playing for their BBL side.
Marcus Stoinis, in his BBL season of 2019/20, aggregated a massive 705 runs for his team Melbourne Stars – the highest any player has scored in a single BBL season so far. The Stars ended up as the runners that year. You can read here the complete list of BBL winners and runners every year.
Likewise, we have listed the top ten cricketers who have had the best of seasons by scoring the most runs within one full BBL edition.

In the 2021/22 season, Ben McDermott became the first player to score two consecutive centuries in BBL. He also tops the BBL’s centuries list.
Though two batsmen from Hobart Hurricanes, D’Arcy Short and Matthew Wade, topped the run-scoring chart that year, the team couldn’t reach the finals of the 2018/19 season.
In fact, except for the Sydney Sixers duo, James Vince and Josh Philippe, no other batter in the above list has ended up as a champion in the respective seasons.
Stoinis, Short, and (Alex) Hales made it twice on this list.
Stoinis also tops the most 50+ runs scored in a single BBL season. He was phenomenal in the 2019/20 season, making 7 50+ scores, including a century.
Short made 572 runs in 11 innings in the 2017/18 season at an average of 57.20 – the highest seasonal average for any player who scored 500+ runs in the edition. And the English opener, Alex Hales, in the 2020/21 season for Sydney Thunder, tops the strike rate chart for the same group.
