"Universe Boss" Chris Gayle holds the record for scoring the most number of runs in an innings in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

The swashbuckling West Indian opener hammered barely believable 175* off just 66 deliveries while playing for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) against the Pune Warriors XI at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore during IPL 2013.

Gayle went absolutely berserk that afternoon as he smashed 13 fours and as many as 17 monstrous sixes to finish at 175*. A decade on, no batsman has been able to come close to overhauling it.

The 2nd highest score in the history of the IPL belongs to former Kiwi opener Brendon McCullum, who lit up the cash-rich league in the very first match of the inaugural season with a power packed 158* (73).

McCullum, who was representing the Kolkata Knight Riders at the time, laid into the hapless RCB attack, smashing as many as 10 4s and 13 6s.

In IPL 2022, Lucknow Supergiants opener Quinton de Kock racked up the third-highest score in the league's history, after he smashed a brutal 140* (70) in a record-breaking 210-run opening stand with KL Rahul against the Kolkata Knight Riders.

The 4th highest score in IPL history belongs to the legendary AB de Villiers, who creamed a majestic 133* (59) against the Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium in IPL 2015.

The top-5 is completed by KL Rahul, who engineered a stylish-yet brutal, 132* off 69 deliveries against the Royal Challengers Bangalore in Dubai during the 2020 edition.
