Here we will be discussing the 5 batsmen who have registered the Best Batting Strike Rate in IPL so far
The first name in this list is a very expected one who has actually redefined power-hitting in T20. Andre Russell who plays for Kolkata Knight Riders has played 74 matches in the cash-rich league so far in which he has aggregated 1517 runs with 105 fours and 129 sixes at an incredible strike rate of 182.33.
He has 8 half-centuries with a high score of 88 not out in the IPL. Russell has many times won games for KKR on his own from very difficult situations.
Nicholas Pooran who is considered among the cleanest hitters of the ball right now is at the second spot in terms of career strike rate in IPL. Pooran impressed everyone with his exploits in the last season where he featured for the Punjab team.
He has so far scored 521 runs in 20 innings at a strike rate of 165.39 with 33 fours and 39 sixes including 2 fifties. This includes a fifty in only 17 balls, which was the fastest in last year’s IPL.
Sunil Narine displayed his batting skills at top of the order for KKR strikes at a rate of 164.27 with 103 fours and 52 sixes. He has 892 runs to his name at an average of 16.83 including 4 fifties.
His performance last season was not up to the mark, and it will be interesting to see at what batting position he is sent to play this year.
Hardik Pandya is arguably the most impactful power hitter in the Indian team right now. He has been consistently performing for Mumbai Indians over the years and played a crucial part in helping them become champions a couple of times.
Hardik has scored 1349 runs with 86 fours and 93 sixes in 74 innings at a strike rate of 159.26. He has 4 half-centuries in the league with the high score being 91.
Moeen Ali is fifth on this list with a strike rate of 158.46. He played for RCB last season and was bought by CSK in the mini auctions of this year.
Moeen Ali has so far scored 309 runs with 21 fours and 23 sixes in IPL at an average of 20.60 including 3 half-centuries.
