3 star Indian batsmen who have not scored a century in the IPL
The Indian Premier League has seen huge sixes, classy boundaries, big totals, exciting chases, fast fifties and memorable hundreds. One of the important byproducts of the league has been the making of skillful young cricketers to the Indian team. Almost all the great players from world cricket in the modern era have performed under the banner of some IPL franchise over the last 11 years.
There have been numerous Indian stars over the course of the IPL, but some of them have not yet scored a century in the high-scoring league. Here, we take a look at the three biggest batsmen in Indian cricket who failed to reach the three-figure mark in an IPL game.
#3 MS Dhoni
Adored for his lightning-fast hands behind the wickets, MS Dhoni is the most successful wicket-keeper for India in both ODI and Test with 425 and 294 dismissals respectively.
In the Indian Premier League, Dhoni has been one of the most successful captains with three titles to his name which he won as the captain of the Chennai Super Kings.
Dhoni was bought by CSK for a whopping price amount of $1.5 million in the first ever IPL auction as the most expensive player that year.
In the IPL, Dhoni is seventh on the list of all-time highest run scorers. He has scored 4016 runs at an average of 40.16 and a strike rate of 138.18 across 175 IPL matches.
However, Dhoni has not achieved a three-digit score in the IPL despite being able to score as many as 20 fifties. In the 2018 Indian Premier League, he attained his highest score of 79 runs which came against Kings XI Punjab.
