IPL 2021: 5 records that are unlikely to be broken in IPL 2021; The Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) is just around the corner and fans are waiting with baited breaths to watch their favourite teams back in action.

The Indian Premier League has given the fans a lot to cherish over the years with the best cricketers in action from around the world. Over the years, we have witnessed some major records that can stay on forever. These records will take a Herculean task to be broken. Let’s take a look at 5 such records which are unlikely to ever be broken

1. Virat Kohli’s four centuries in one season

Kohli’s record of 4 centuries in just one season would fall under the unbreakable category and if someone does break that, it would be quite phenomenal. In 2016, Virat Kohli scored 973 runs in a single season of IPL.

He had already received the Player of the Tournament award in the World T20. Continuing his good form, he scored 973 runs in 16 matches for Royal Challengers Bangalore at an average of 81.08 which included 4 centuries. We do not think anyone will break this record.

2. Partnership of 229 runs between Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers

This massive partnership took place during the 44th match in 2016 when RCB faced Gujarat Lions. Having been put in to bat first, the home team didn’t have the best of starts and they found themselves struggling at 19/1 after four overs. However, it was pure destruction after that as both the modern-day maestros combined for an incredible partnership of 229.

Virat scored 109 while ABD remained unbeaten on 129 from just 52 deliveries. Scoring even 200 runs is a huge task and building a partnership of at least 230 would be impossible. Even the second-highest partnership of 215* belongs to these two, and it is highly unlikely that anyone will get near the top 2.

3. 37 runs in one over

It isn’t often that we see batsmen scoring more than 20-25 runs in just one over and even the maximum number of runs that can be scored in an over are 36. Thus, scoring 37 runs in an over is quite special and is a record that might never be broken. Chris Gayle was the main man behind it.

Chris Gayle scored 37 runs in the over of Prashant Parameswaran in 2011. But it is a record that can remain intact for many years.

4. Chris Gayle’s 175 run innings
In the 2013 IPL, Chris Gayle scored an unbeaten 175 from 66 balls against Pune Warriors. Gayle has this record even today. During his innings, the left-handed Gayle broke the record for the fastest 100 in T20 and the highest individual score in T20.

5. RCB’s lowest ever total

Royal Challengers Bangalore have not yet won the IPL Trophy. RCB also holds the record for the most embarrassing performance. Batting first at Eden Gardens in 2017, KKR scored 131 runs. But the entire team of RCB were all out for 49 runs in 9.4 overs. Which is the lowest score made by any team in the history of IPL.
