The 13th edition of the Indian Premier League is almost upon us. The excitement is getting bigger with each passing day. The day is now not too far when we would witness the repeat of the last year’s final Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings in the tournament opener.
In the previous 12 editions, there have been some stalwarts who have already stamped themselves as the legend of the tournament. These players rule the charts of the records. Before the IPL 13 begins, let’s look at the huge milestones that some of the biggest names of the league can achieve in this season.
#1 Rohit Sharma can become the third player to accumulate 5000 runs
The skipper of Mumbai Indians Rohit Sharma is on the verge of achieving something special. He is just 102 runs short of scoring 5000 runs in the IPL. With 4898 runs from 188 games, he is third on the list of highest run-getters. Only Suresh Raina and Virat Kohli are ahead of Rohit, who have crossed the 5000-run mark.
Rohit is set to open the innings for Mumbai Indians and he could well achieve this landmark in the first few games. Even though his recent record in the tournament hasn’t been as good as his international run, yet we can back him to achieve this record soon.
