Shaun Marsh | 1000 IPL runs in 21 innings
Shanu Marsh showed some of his most explosive batting in his IPL career while playing for Kings XI Punjab, now Punjab Kings. The southpaw was an opening mainstay during his tenure and almost always gave Punjab a quick start, ending his Indian Premier League stint with one century and 20 half-centuries. However, none of his IPL seasons came close to his debut campaign in 2008 when he scored 616 runs in 11 matches to win the orange cap.
Lendl Simmons | 1000 runs in 23 innings
Mumbai Indians are known for their efficient finds in IPL. The franchise has given Indian team players like Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah and more. One such lesser-known name for them was West Indies’ Lendl Simmons, who debuted in IPL 2014 for Mumbai and scored almost 400 runs in just eight matches. He followed up. that season with 540 runs in 13 matches in IPL 2015 as Mumbai Indian lifted the IPL trophy.
Chris Gayle | 1000 IPL runs in 27 innings

Sachin Tendulkar | 1000 IPL runs in 31 innings
Sachin Tendulkar’s record of being the fastest Indian to score 1000 IPL runs is still intact, showing just how good of a T20 player he was.

However, the Master Blaster boasts of winning the Orange cap in IPL 2010, when he scored 618 runs in 15 matches.
Ruturaj Gaikwad | 1000 runs in 31 innings
