Most Runs in Powerplay Overs, Middle Overs, & Death Overs in IPL 2024

A T20 game is divided into 3 phases — powerplay overs (1-6), middle overs (7-16), and death overs (17-20). Each phase has its own intricacies.

In powerplay overs, the batters exploit the fielding restrictions and provide a solid start for the team. 

During the middle overs, they start to build the innings based on the strong foundation and continue the momentum going into the death overs. 

In the last four overs, batters get a free licence, smashing every delivery to the boundary to finish on a high note.

The IPL 2024 boasts batters who have expertise in batting in these phases. And they will create a significant impact for their teams by accumulating loads of runs. 

This article will list the top 10 batters with the most runs in powerplay overs, middle overs, and death overs in IPL 2024.

Before we delve deep, take a look at the leading run scorers in IPL 2024 here.

Now, let’s start with the powerplay overs.

Jaiswal will look to go bonkers in the powerplay phase in the 2024 season as well. And there will be a tussle between Shubman Gill, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan, and Jaiswal to claim the top spot.
