IPL 2023: Ranking Overall Leading Run Scorer for Each Team

Shubman Gill, the standout as we look at the ranking of the leading run scorer for all 10 teams for IPL 2023

The Indian Premier League 2023 has come to a successful end, and we have seen some fabulous display of batting from the players of all 10 teams. Of all the seasons that we have seen so far, 2023 has been the only season where we have seen six 600+ scores being scored individually.

But how about we take a look at the leading run-scorer of each team, and then rank them based on the runs they scored? It’s an interesting take on the overall number where we get to know how best batters of respective teams performed in relation to the other players.

For a simple understanding of the users, we shall rank only the leading run-scorer of each team in IPL 2023. So, we will have only one entry per team. For example, Virat Kohli has scored 639 for RCB, and he is fourth overall. But he may not feature in this list as Faf du Plessis with 730 runs has been selected from RCB. 

Ranking Leading Run Scorer for Each Team in IPL 2023 

#10: Punjab Kings – Shikhar Dhawan (373 Runs)

Inns: 11 // Runs: 373 // Avg: 41.4 // SR: 142.9 // HS: 99*

Number 10 belongs to Shikhar Dhawan from Punjab Kings. No one other than Dhawan could score consistently in the batting department for PBKS. Hence, Dhawan, who played only 11 matches for PBKS makes to the list as their leading run-scorer with 373 runs. However, had Dhawan played 3 more matches, he would have crossed 500+ runs most probably. 

#9: Lucknow Super Giants – Marcus Stoinis (408 Runs) 

Inns: 15 // Runs: 408 // Avg: 31.4 // SR: 150 // HS: 89*

Number 9 belongs to Marcus Stoinis from Lucknow Super Giants. LSG haven’t had consistent performances from their top order, hence we are seeing a finisher Marcus Stoinis as the leading run-scorer for LSG. Overall, Stoinis has scored 408 runs from 15 innings at an average of 31.4 and a good strike rate of 150.

#8: Sunrisers Hyderabad – Heinrich Klaasen (448 Runs)

Inns: 11 // Runs: 448 // Avg: 49.8 // SR: 177.1 // HS: 104

Number 8 sees a similar situation to what we have seen for Lucknow Super Giants. It was Marcus Stoinis for LSG, it is another finisher Heinrich Klaasen for Sunrisers Hyderabad. Klassen played only 11 innings for Sunrisers, but scored a super 448 runs at an average of 49.8 and a super strike rate of 177.1. He has scored almost 200 runs more than the 2nd-best Rahul Tripathi. 

#7: Kolkata Knight Riders – Rinku Singh (474 Runs)

Inns: 14 // Runs: 474  // Avg: 59.3 // SR: 149.5 // HS: 67*

Another team, another finisher as the leading run-scorer. This time we have Rinku Singh at number 7 from Kolkata Knight Riders. Batting at 5 or below, Rinku has not only been the best batter of KKR but also their leading run-getter. Rinku scored a superb 474 runs from 14 innings at an average of 59.3 and a strike rate of 149.5. 

#6: Delhi Capitals – David Warner (516 Runs)

Inns: 14 // Runs: 516 // Avg: 36.9 // SR: 131.6 // HS: 86

Number 6 sees the Captain of Delhi Capitals, David Warner. Warner, the lone warrior of Delhi Capitals has scored a total of 516 runs this season, that’s 233 runs more than 2nd-best Axar Patel. Warner may be a touch slower with a strike rate of 131.6, but was consistent with 6 fifties to his name. 

#5: Mumbai Indians – Suryakumar Yadav (605 Runs)

Inns: 16 // Runs: 605 // Avg: 43.2 // SR: 181.1 // HS: 103*

Number 5 belongs to Mumbai Indians’ Suryakumar Yadav. MI saw good batting performances from Kishan, Green, and Tilak, but it’s Suryakumar Yadav, who has scored the most runs for them with a total of 605 runs to his name. What’s superb is that his 605 runs have come at an amazing strike rate of 181.1 with 5 fifties and 1 century to his name. 

#4: Rajasthan Royals – Yashasvi Jaiswal (625 Runs)

Inns: 14 // Runs: 625 // Avg: 48.1 // SR: 163.6 // HS: 124

Number 4 sees Rajasthan Royals’ Yashasvi Jaiswal. Jaiswal, the second uncapped player list overpowered the likes of Buttler, Samson, and Hetmyer to become their leading run-getter this year. Jaiswal scored a stunning 625 runs from just 14 innings at a superb average of 48.1 and a brilliant strike rate of 163.6. 

#3: Chennai Super Kings – Devon Conway (672 Runs)

Inns: 15 // Runs: 672 // Avg: 51.7 // SR: 139.7 // HS: 92*

Number 3 sees IPL 2023 Champions, Chennai Super Kings’ Devon Conway. Conway ended the season as the leading run-getter for CSK with a total of 672 runs to his name from just 15 innings. Conway and Ruturaj were outstanding for CSK with the latter getting 590 runs this season. Overall, Conway scored 5 fifties this season, and his average stands at a good 51.7.

#1: Gujarat Titans – Shubman Gill (851 Runs)

Inns: 17 // Runs: 890 // Avg: 59.3 // SR: 157.8 // HS: 129

The Orange Cap holder of IPL 2023, and the leading run-scorer for Gujarat Titans, Shubman Gill has had one hell of a season. Virat Kohli was 28 years old when he scored 973 runs in IPL 2016, but Shubman Gill has almost replicated that record while being only 23 years old. Gill has scored an astonishing 890 runs from 17 innings at an average of 59.3 and a strike rate of 157.8. 

So, that’s about the ranking of the leading runs scorer for each team in IPL 2023.
