IPL Top Batter Odds: Indian Premier League Betting

The 2024 Indian Premier League starts on 22nd March with some of the world's most exciting T20 batters aiming to light up the 17th edition of the tournament.

Indian players dominate the Top Batter market but England's T20 captain Jos Buttler is also prominent in the betting, having finished as the leading runscorer in 2022.

Indian Premier League 2024 Top Batter Odds

(Odds will display when markets are available)

Yashasvi Jaiswal

England's bowlers know all about the six-hitting ability of Yashasvi Jaiswal, who struck 19 maximums in his innings of 209 and 214 not out during February's Test series.

Jaiswal won the IPL's Emerging Player award for 2023 after racking up 625 runs for Rajasthan Royals at a strike-rate of 164.

Ruturaj Gaikwad

The Chennai Super Kings opener made his IPL debut in 2020 and stamped his class on the tournament a year later, scoring 635 runs in 16 appearances to claim the Orange Cap awarded each season to the leading batter.

Gaikwad had a lean 2022, despite a brilliant knock of 99 off 57 balls against Sunrisers Hyderabad, but he bounced back with 590 runs at a strike-rate of 147.5 in 2023.

Shubman Gill

Gill started his IPL career with Kolkata Knight Riders in 2018 but he has flourished since joining Gujarat Titans in 2022 and will captain the side in 2024 after Hardik Pandya's move to Mumbai Indians.

The elegant right-handed opener made three centuries in the 2023 IPL, powering him to the top of the batting charts with 890 runs, and he has played some stunning innings for India in all three formats. 

Virat Kohli

India's batting superstar missed the recent Test series against England but he has played in every edition of the IPL and has a superb record for Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Kohli's 973 runs in the 2016 IPL remains the highest tally in a single season and the veteran looked back to his best in 2023, scoring two centuries and six fifties in just 14 innings. 

David Warner

Another golden oldie of the IPL is Australia's David Warner, who has been retained by Delhi Capitals for the 2024 season.

The left-hander enjoyed great success with Sunrisers Hyderabad, winning the Orange Cap in 2015, 2017 and 2019 and captaining the Sunrisers to the title in 2016.

Warner, a T20 World Cup winner with Australia in 2021, is the most prolific overseas batter in IPL history and only Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan have scored more runs in the competition than his tally of 6,397.

KL Rahul

The India star made only nine IPL appearances last season before suffering a hamstring injury and he was also sidelined for four of the five matches of this year's Test series against England.

The Lucknow Super Giants captain is hoping to be fit for the start of this season's tournament and he is one of the most reliable batters in the IPL, with runs tallies of 659, 593, 670, 626 and 616 in the five seasons between 2018 and 2022. 

Rohit Sharma

India's Test captain has been replaced as Mumbai Indians skipper by Hardik Pandya but he will be hoping to contribute with the bat as the franchise starts its new era.

Rohit won the Emerging Player award in 2009, only the second season of the IPL, and he is the most successful captain in the history of the tournament, leading Mumbai to five titles.

Jos Buttler

England's white-ball captain Jos Buttler is preparing for his ninth IPL campaign and he provided one of the highlights of the 2021 tournament by scoring 124 from just 64 balls for Rajasthan Royals against the Sunrisers.

That set the tone for an incredible 2022 for the opener, who finished the season with 863 runs and four centuries. Only Kohli (2016) and Gill (2023) have eclipsed that tally in the IPL and Buttler will be bidding to recapture that form for the Royals following a tough 2023 campaign.
