IPL: Top 5 batsmen who have covered the most distance by running between the wickets

Regardless of the format of the game, the importance of accumulating runs through running cannot be ignored.

4. MS Dhoni- 40.03 kilometers

Mahendra Singh Dhoni needs no introduction. His performance as a skipper in the IPL has been second to none and the “Yellow Army” has won 3 titles under his leadership. MS has the distinction of featuring in 9 finals- the most for any player- in 12 IPL seasons thus far and these numbers speak for him.

Come running between the wickets and this “39-year-old young man” can simply not be kept out of the discussion. There is a different joy to watch MS run between the wickets. He is unarguably one of the cleverest runners and a double is always on when ‘Thala’ is running.

Dhoni has accumulated 4432 runs in 190 IPL matches. Of these 4432, a total of 2442 or 55.09% runs have come through 297 fours and 209 sixes whereas 1990 or 44.91% have been scored by running between the wickets.
