Indian Premier League season is finally halfway through in its season and this is how the stats fare in the 17th edition of IPL in all departments of the game.

IPL 2024 has been filled with blockbuster entertainment and memorable moments but the season is now gearing up for the second half as all the teams try to battle for the top 4 play-off spots.

Let’s have a look at the stats breakdown at the halfway stage: (till Gujarat Titans vs Punjab Kings match 37)

Most Runs in IPL 2024

Batting maestro of India, Virat Kohli, leads the charts once more in the IPL this season, scoring 379 runs with immaculate stroke-play and displaying his batting class for Royal Challengers Bengaluru mid-way through the season.

In 8 innings, the batter showed scintillating form and consistency throughout the tournament and showed that his power-hitting and strike rate (150.39) showcases why he should be selected for the Indian team for the T20I World Cup in June.

Four Indian batters and one explosive opener from Australia have made the top 5 list of the most prolific run-scorers.

Player Team Matches Runs
Virat Kohli Royal Challengers Bengaluru 8 379
Travis Head Sunrisers Hyderabad 6 324
Riyan Parag Rajasthan Royals 7 318
Rohit Sharma Mumbai Indians 7 297
Shubman Gill Gujarat Titans 8 298

Most Wickets in IPL 2024

Mumbai Indians’ Jasprit Bumrah leads the race for the best bowler cap in this edition of the Indian Premier League with stellar performances. Variations with the pace along with his line and length helped him get an extra bite from the surface and there is no doubt that he can win the award this season.

Yuzvendra Chahal is also picking up wickets at will with 13 scalps to his name and he is the only spinner in the top 5 list so far proving to be a lethal weapon in Rajasthan Royals’ armoury.

Harshal Patel has also picked up 13 wickets while Gerald Coetzee for Mumbai Indians has picked up 12 wickets.

Meanwhile, Sam Curran is having the season of his life with Punjab Kings getting 11 wickets for his team in just 8 innings so far in the IPL.

Most Sixes

In terms of power-hitting ability, Heinrich Klaasen and Sunil Narine have impressed the most this season. One would assume that the likes of Glenn Maxwell or Hardik Pandya would top this list but that is not the case.

Riyan Parag has proved his mettle in IPL this season, with 20 sixes and 318 runs to his name, it seems like he is certainly knocking at the door for a call-up by the Indian selectors for the T20I World Cup.

He has proved that he has a vast range of shots in his game and can be aggressive when needed, his name alongside Nicholas Pooran, Sunil Narine, and Klaasen is a testament to his development as a player.

Abhishek Sharma has been a breath of fresh air and his power-hitting prowess can be seen in his numbers, with 24 huge sixes for Sunrisers Hyderabad, the sky is certainly the limit for the youngster.

Player Team Balls Faced Sixes
Heinrich Klaasen Sunrisers Hyderabad 135 26
Abhishek Sharma Sunrisers Hyderabad 119 24

Virat Kohli’s classy innings of 113 against Rajasthan Royals is right up there as one of the best innings in IPL 2024 but KKR’s all-rounder Sunil Narine 109 off just 56 balls against Rajasthan at the Eden Gardens was the highlight of the season.

Jos Buttler, the man who has scored two centuries for Rajasthan this season is in supreme form and his innings of 107 vs Kolkata was an exhibition of brute force.

Rohit Sharma’s blistering 105 for Mumbai Indians is right up there as one of the best knocks of IPL 2024 while Travis Head’s 102 off 41 balls for Sunrisers Hyderabad will remain etched in the memory of IPL fans forever.
