Indian Premier League has earned the tag of the most popular T20 league across the globe because of its high-quality standards and competitive games. The league has turned around the lives of many youngsters. For any batter to succeed in a tournament like IPL, it is important that he is able to find boundaries at regular intervals during the innings and keep the scoring rate high. Players have made use of flat surfaces and small boundaries to score a high number of boundaries.
Some players have enough power hit the ball over the rope consistently while others have to use their skills to get fours and accelerate the innings. Boundaries in the T20 format are as important as sixes and the risk tends to be slightly lower if the intention of a batter is to hit boundaries and not sixes. In this article, we are going to list out players who have hit the most fours in the history of the Indian Premier League.
