T20 cricket is not just about smashing from the word go until the final ball of the innings. It also requires the batters to assess the conditions and situations of the game and string consistent scores for their team.


The consistency factor can never be ignored in any format. Top-order batters, particularly the openers, have the edge to pile up as many runs in the tournament.


There are three batters in the IPL to score consecutive fifties on as many as five times. Virender Sehwag, Jos Buttler, and David Warner jointly hold the record for most consecutive fifties in IPL.


Sehwag became the first batter in the history of T20 cricket to hit five consecutive fifties. He achieved the feat while leading Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals) in IPL 2012.


The Nawab of Najafgarh scored 57 against Pune Warriors India in a losing cause but his unbeaten 87 off 48 balls guided Delhi to an eight-wicket victory against the same opposition in their next game.


Sehwag hit 73 against Mumbai Indians with support from Mahela Jayawardene (55) and Kevin Pietersen (50*) helped Delhi post 207/5. They eventually won by 37 runs to muster successive wins.


The Delhi skipper scored 63 against Rajasthan Royals at Feroz Shah Kotla (now Arun Jaitley Stadium) as the home side sealed a one-run thrilling win on the last ball. In Daredvils' next game against Royals, Sehwag hammered 37-ball 73 to set the tone for the 142-run chase. DD wrapped the game with 28 balls to spare.


Legendary Indian batter Virat Kohli racked up four consecutive 50-plus scores during his record-breaking stint in IPL 2016. The run machine hammered a breathtaking 109 against the Gujarat Lions and backed it up with an unbeaten 75 against the Knight Riders.


The former skipper went on to add 113 and 54* in his next two innings against Punjab Kings and Delhi Capitals respectively to become just the second batter in IPL history to smash four 50+ scores in a row.


Playing in his first season for Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2018, Jos Buttler became the second player and first overseas player to attain the feat. He was slotted in to bat in the middle order either at No.5 or No.6, where he managed only 100 runs in seven innings.


The promotion to the opening spot changed the Lancashire cricketer’s career. The champion batter started by hitting 67 against Delhi Darevils albeit in a losing manner. He scored 51 and 82 against Punjab in RR's next two games before remaining unbeaten on 95 in a 177-run chase versus CSK. Another magnificent 94 not out followed against Mumbai Indians, as Rajasthan won by seven wickets.


Warner was the third player to hit five consecutive fifties in IPL in the year 2019. He started the season with a couple of fifties followed by a brisk century against RCB. However, he didn't carry the momentum in his next two innings.


But got back to the scoring ways when SRH played Punjab Kings. The opener made 70 even though they lost by six wickets. He scored 51 against Delhi Capitals and 50 against Chennai Super Kings before paving the way with a 38-ball 67 while chasing 161 against KKR. SRH won three matches in a row before their streak was cut short by CSK in a six-wicket defeat, but Warner made 57 in the first innings.


Kane Williamson (SRH) and Faf Du Plessis (CSK) have scored four fifties in a row in 2018 and 2021 respectively.
