The IPL 2023 season begins in roughly a month, but David Warner holds a record that no one will be able to beat for many years.
IPL 2023 has only one month remaining. The 16th season of the IPL will begin on March 31 with a match between Gujarat Titans and Chennai Super Kings.
Nevertheless, the moment has arrived to learn about the ancient IPL records. At the commencement of the IPL, new records will be set. But now we’re going to tell you about a record set by Australian player David Warner that is not only tough to break, but also appears unattainable. So far, we’ve learned about the two players who have scored the most runs in IPL history, but they’re both Indians.
Do you know who has the most runs in the IPL? It is, indeed, David Warner.
David Warner has scored 5881 runs in 162 IPL matches so far. But, when we compare ViratKohli’s matches to David Warner’s matches, we can see that David Warner is much ahead of ViratKohli. David Warner is the only player in IPL history to have four hundreds and 54 half-centuries.
After David Warner, the foreign player with the most runs is AB de Villiers, who has 5162 runs in 184 matches. David Warner will play in the IPL again this year for the Delhi Capitals, and if his bat performs well, he will become the first foreign player in IPL history to reach 6,000 runs. He is not participating in the IPL. That is, no player has the capacity to challenge David Warner as a foreign player.
Every year, the player with the most runs in the IPL receives an orange cap. Thus far, David Warner has won it three times. He is the first foreign player to have won this title three times.
Apart from foreigners, no Indian player has ever won it three times. Kane Williamson and Jos Buttler are the two overseas players currently playing for New Zealand.
To match David Warner, he must win this championship at least twice more, and to defeat him, he must win it three times. But, it remains to be seen how David Warner plays for his new side, the Delhi Capitals, in the IPL 2023.
