IPL 2020 : Biggest IPL record which everyone missed, check details

IPL 2020 : Biggest IPL record : The 2020 Indian Premier League drew to a close with Mumbai Indians deservedly laying their hands on their fifth-IPL title. However, not many people are aware that MI batsman Ishan Kishan, who was outstanding in the tournament, signed off IPL 2020 with 1 very unique record. In 13 editions of IPL, Kishan has become the highest scoring uncapped player. No uncapped player has scored more than what Kishan managed this IPL.

Biggest IPL Record : Kishan scored 516 runs in 14 matches thus becoming only the second uncapped player in the history of IPL to score 500 or more runs in a single season of the cash-rich league.

Kishan is only the second player to achieve the feat after his team-mate Suryakumar Yadav, who hit 512 runs for Mumbai in 2018, and hasn’t been capped yet either. However, Kishan’s 516 runs are the most by an uncapped batsman in an IPL season.

Notably, Ishan also hit an astounding 30 sixes -the most by any batsman in IPL 2020 and his consistent run in the tournament saw him finish the tournament as the fifth highest run-getter overall, behind only KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan David Warner and Shreyas Iyer. The 22 year old in fact was the highest run-getter for Mumbai Indians this season ahead of teammate Quinton de Kock, who finished sixth on the overall charts, with 503 runs in 16 matches.

But, despite their rich form with the bat, neither of the three Indian batsmen got picked in either of the T20I, ODI or Test squads for the upcoming India tour of Australia.

Meanwhile, in the bowling department, two uncapped bowlers feature in the top-10 wicket-takers of the season – Varun Chakravarthy (17) and T Natarajan (16). Chakravarthy is the only bowler to take a five-wicket haul this season.
