Most runs : Leading run scorers in IPL 2013.
Tag IPL-2013  
Shaun Marsh averaged almost seventy in inaugural season of IPL, scoring 616 runs, the most by any batsman in year 2008. Mathew Hayden proved he would've been an unstoppable force had T20 cricket evolved before the sunset of his career, scoring 572 runs, the maximum. Indian run machine Sachin Tendulkar too has been nearing end of his career, for a while now, and in 2010 he almost single handly stretched Mumbai Indians to the title, fetching 618 runs from 15 games. Since then,
in 2011 and 2012, Chris Gayle has left everyone behind, making 608 and 733 runs respectively. Needless to say, he also own the record of
most runs in an IPL season..

The battle for the orange cap in IPL 6 remained between Chris Gayle (for his few explosive knocks) and Michael Hussey (for his consistency). Hussey finally snatched it away as CSK went upto the final as well as broke the record of most runs in a season. Among others, Indian youngsters like Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma and Dinesh Karthik impressed while MS Dhoni played explosively down the order. Among Internationals, Shane Watson, Aaron Finch, David Miller and Kieron Pollard made their bats talk.

Note : We've had two ties, decided by super over = Match 7 and Match 21. Bangalore have been involved in both of them, first losing to Hyderabad and then beating Delhi. The runs scored by batsmen in those eliminators are not counted into their career, like goals scored in penalty shoot-outs are not counted in soccer.
