Chris Gayle, only player to be awarded Orange Cap twice, also holds records for most sixes (180) and most runs in a single series. Lasith Malinga of Mumbai Indians holds the record for most wickets until IPL 6 (103). However, Sohail Tanvir’s tally of 6 wickets for 14 runs in inaugural IPL edition for Rajasthan Royals has not been breached by anyone. The Lowest team total is in the name of Rajasthan Royals when they folded up for just 58 runs against Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL 2.
Suresh Raina of Chennai Super Kings leads the charts for most run aggregate in IPL with over 2800 runs while Rohit Sharma, currently captain of the defending champions Mumbai Indians, scraps to second position with 2513 runs, only 1 runs ahead of Chris Gayle of Royal Challengers Bangalore. Though Chris Gayle ball hitting penchant might scare the hell out of bowlers, but he falls marginally behind local hero, Virender Sehwag of Delhi Daredevils for highest strike rate. Sehwag has a strike rate of 160.32 while Gayle sports hitting rate of 160.2.
Suresh Raina also holds the record for most catches in IPL history as non-keeper with his 52 catches. M S Dhoni might have led Chennai Super Kings to become the most consistent team in IPL, but falls short on the list of most dismissals by a wicketkeeper against Adam Gilchrist (67) by 5 dismissals.
