IPL 2024: The player who has scored the most runs in IPL 2024 so far, i.e. till the evening of 7th April, is Virat Kohli. Kohli's lead over the number two batsman has now increased considerably. Although a lot of this season of the Indian Premier League is still left, any batsman can go ahead in it, but Kohli has already staked his claim for the Orange Cap. Meanwhile, if we talk only about Indian players, Kohli's strike rate is very low. At the same time, the player who is not ready to be a part of the RCB i.e. Royal Challengers Bangalore playing eleven, has given sixes to the opposing bowlers by coming as an impact player.

Kohli's strike rate is very low

Former RCB captain Virat Kohli has so far scored 316 runs in this year's IPL after playing 5 matches. Sai Sudarshan is at second place, who has 191 runs in his name. But Kohli's strike rate is a cause for concern. He is currently batting at a strike rate of 146.29. Which does not look good at all in front of the name of a batsman of his level. Well, leaving aside foreign players this year and talking about Indian batsmen only, Mahipal Lomror, while playing 2 matches for RCB, has batted at a strike rate of more than 238. Although he was not a part of the playing eleven on most occasions, he has been used as an impact player.

Mahipal Lomror is a very aggressive batsman.

Mahipal Lomror has scored only 50 runs, but is still dominant. Because for these 50 runs, Lomror has faced only 21 balls. This is the matter of Lomror, but even if the standard of at least 100 runs is considered then SRH's Abhishek Sharma strike rate is the best. He has scored 161 runs in 4 matches and his strike rate is 217.56. He is at number two among Indian batsmen, but is also at number four in the overall list. To score 161 runs, Abhishek faced only 74 balls. He comes to open for the team and as soon as he comes, he bats in a explosive manner.

Abhishek Poral, Sanju Samson and Shreyas Iyer also ahead of Kohli

If Indian and foreign players are combined, Kohli comes at 40th position in terms of strike rate. Abhishek Poral, Sanju Samson and Shreyas Iyer also have a better strike rate than him. Virat Kohli may have played an unbeaten inning of 113 runs in his last IPL match, but this is the joint slowest century scored by any player in the IPL. Kohli has scored 8 centuries in the IPL so far, but he has never scored a slower century than this.
