Most centuries, most 200-plus totals: Multiple records are created and broken during the IPL 2023 season

The Indian Premier League 2023 came to a thrilling conclusion on Tuesday, 30 May, with Chennai Super Kings capturing their fifth IPL crown in a final ball thriller against Gujarat Titans. The IPL 2023, a three-day event, was a perfect conclusion to a fantastic tournament between ten teams. Deep into the competition, teams were not separated by many points. The four play-off spots were determined on the final league matchday of the IPL 2023 when GT defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore. The season was defined by spectacular bat-to-ball performances and last-ball thrills, a trend that remained until the tournament’s final.

On that subject, here are some of the IPL records that were broken this year:

Outstanding Batting Performances

The Indian Premier League 2023 witnessed the most centuries scored in a single season. In the competition, 12 centuries were hit, with Shubman Gill leading the way. Gill achieved three consecutive centuries in the IPL 2023, a first in the league’s history. And who can forget Virat Kohli, who scored seven consecutive centuries to become the only player in IPL history to have seven hundred?

Massive Totals

The IPL 2023 was a batter’s dream. All sides witnessed some spectacular batting displays at places like Mohali, Wankhede, and, of course, Eden Gardens. This season’s IPL had the most 200-run totals, with Lucknow Super Giants leading the way with a 257-run total against PBKS.

If a 200+ score was the norm, pursuing a 200-run total was as well. In the IPL 2023, eight 200+ totals were successfully pursued, with Mumbai shooting down four of them.

The majority of Half-Centuries

Throughout the IPL 2023, the team’s key batsmen attempted to retain some consistency. At the top, players like Faf du Plessis, Virat Kohli, and Shubman Gill attempted to target the right bowlers and take the game deep. Finishers such as Rinku Singh and Heinrich Klaasen, on the other hand, annihilated the opposition with their high-quality striking abilities. IPL 2023 saw a record number of batsmen hit 50+ runs – 153 in total, up from 118 last season.
