If there is an almost as much tougher twenty20 stage than international matches, its IPL and hence, if there is a list that's second most pretigious to have a name in to highest T20 score, is highest individual score in IPL, of which we have a list in following..

Chris Gayle, the big Jamaican, has easily been the most dangerous batsman in IPL and he proved it to Pune Warriors on 23rd April 2013, smashing the highest score in T20 cricket anywhere in the world as well as the fastest century in the tournament, off just 30 balls! Gayle hit 17 sixes, the most by any batsman in an inning.

Brendon McCullum, the New Zealand swashbuckler, in the very first match in the history of Indian Premier League, struck a mind boggling 158 without being dismissed which stood as best score for more than five seasons. The game was played at M Chinnaswamy stadium in Bangalore and against the home team Royal Challengers, this Kolkata Knight Riders right handed opener mesmerized everyone, reaching fifty off 32 balls (5 fours + 3 sixes), hundred off 53 balls (8 fours + 7 sixes) and then 150 off 70 balls (10 fours and 12 sixes). Needless to say, McCullum concentrated on hitting everything out of the park once he got set and succeeded admirably.

Fact : only 27 batsmen have been able to score a century in IPL matches and hence, they're the only ones featuring in following list. Chris Gayle is the batsman to score most centuries in IPL = 4, followed by Murali Vijay, David Warner and Adam Gilchrist who all have two. 16 others have one ton each.
