IPL 2018: 5 players who can beat Chris Gayle's record for the highest score in an innings
A number of players would be looking to break Gayle's record this year.
Chris Gayle has the record for the highest score in an innings in an Indian Premier League game. He had scored 175 runs in just 66 balls against the now defunct Pune Warriors India. He had registered this record in 2013 and it has been five years since, and no one has come even close to the score.
Fans will be looking for someone to break that record soon. This year's IPL has some explosive batsmen in the fray and there is a definite possibility of one of them breaking the record.
Virat Kohli was in ominous form in the South African tour. He single-handedly won matches for the Indian team in the unfriendly South African conditions.
The Indian captain has an impressive record in IPL, especially in the 2016 edition where he had scored 973 runs in a single season. He had scored four centuries that year along with seven half centuries, with a high score of 113.
The RCB captain would be looking to take his team to their maiden IPL trophy and the team's fortunes would heavily depend on his form. He definitely has the ability to beat Chris Gayle's record if he plays at the top of the order this year.
