Top 10 highest individual scores in IPL

Top 10 highest individual scores in IPL: The IPL never failed to produce entertainment for the crowds that turn out. It is mostly due to the hard hitters who trash and send the ball into the stands. Players like Gayle, Sehwag, Vijay and many others have already proved it spare of an innings itself. Here we look at such type of innings in IPL.

Here is the list of top 10 individual scores in IPL history:

This was another killer of an innings from Chris, though he was quite and patient in the first over against Sandeep Sharma of the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) but it was the wait before the Gayle Storm. The second over by Australian pacer Mitchell Johnson saw him break the shackles and the Caribbean accumulated 20 runs from it. What followed then on was a complete dominance from him and the bowlers looked meeky and helpless. Gayle smashed as many as 12 huge sixes in his innings many of which even went on to hit the roof of the stadium. He scored 100 runs from 48 balls and by the time left-arm spinner Axar Patel got him on the 57th ball of his innings Gayle had already piled on 117 runs.
