IPL has so far observed 13 full seasons. The 14th season, IPL 2021, was halfway suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The second leg of the tournament will be played in September-October later this year. As the Indian Premier League is a T20 tournament, batsmen have to score runs at a high pass rate as there are only 20 overs in a match. Consequently, batsmen should focus on scoring more runs rather than saving their wicket.
Although batsmen place more value on scoring more runs in IPL while batting rather than protecting their wickets, there are many players who have remained unbeaten in many matches. These batsmen have managed not to stay out in many matches during the previous seasons of the Indian Premier League. In this article, we look at 6 players with the most not-outs in IPL history.
