IPL Stats: Which Players Have Smacked The Most Fours In IPL History?

IPL 2022: Batters with most fours to their name in the IPL history.

By Rishabh Gautam March 29, 2022 • 16:48 PM

IPL Stats & Records - The most extravagant domestic T20 league in the world, the Indian Premier League (IPL) is set to return to India for its 15th season. The first match will be played between Chennai Super Kings & Kolkata Knight Riders on March 26th at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. 

T20 is a batter-dominated format, where batters look to score runs at a higher run rate to strengthen the team's chance of winning the match. To score quick runs, batters opt to go for boundaries and especially sixes. However, scoring a boundary becomes more difficult than hitting a six, as six can be smacked with power and timing but batters need to skillfully place the ball to score a boundary.


Here are the top 5 batters with most fours in IPL history

#5. Gautam Gambhir (492 Fours)

Former Indian opener and World Cup 2011 finals hero, Gautam Gambhir ranks 5th on this list with 492 fours to his name in 154 matches. GG has registered 4,217 runs to his name in his IPL career while playing for Delhi Daredevils and Kolkata Knight Riders and has 36 fifties in IPL. Gambhir has won 2 IPL titles as captain of the KKR team and played his last season in 2018.

#4. Suresh Raina (506 Fours)

IPL's 'Mr. Cricket' Suresh Raina ranks 4th with 506 fours to his name in 205 IPL matches. Raina has 5,528 runs to his name in his IPL career while playing for Chennai Super Kings and Gujarat Lions in the time frame of 2008-2021. 'Chinna Thala' went unsold in the IPL 2022 auction and the 35-year old batter's chances to return looks bleak.

#3. David Warner (525 fours)
