5 players with highest strike rate in an IPL innings
Some rather surprising names feature on the list.
T20 cricket is all about striking massive sixes and plundering runs for fun. It is a batsman's game after all.
The IPL, being the ultimate T20 competition in the world, has witnessed some moments of breathtaking hitting from batsmen (and bowlers mind you), entertaining the crowds to no end.
Here, we take a look at five of the quickest innings in IPL history. In others words, five players with the highest strike rate in an innings.
Note: Only players who have scored at least 25 runs have been considered.
#5 AB de Villiers - 372.72
De Villiers comes in at #5 on this list courtesy his knock of 41 off just 11 balls against Mumbai Indians at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in IPL 2015. The South African struck 5 fours and 3 sixes in an attempt to get his side close to the 210 run target set by the visitors.
While de Villiers dispatched the bowlers to all parts of the ground, he did not receive any support from his teammates and RCB ended up short, losing the match by 18 runs.
