IPL 2018: Record for Most Number of Fours in an Innings
Michael Lumb is on the list of batsmen scoring most number of boundaries in an innings in the IPL.

In this part of the series, we look at some of the memorable individual performances from IPL, and how it stood out in the tally of the number of boundaries hit during their outing.

Here is a look at the leaderboard for the most number of 4’s hit during a single inning.

5. Glenn Maxwell – 15 boundaries vs CSK

The ‘Big Show’ features on the list, and is placed at the fifth position on the leaderboard, with his tally of 15 boundaries vs Chennai Super Kings at Abu Dhabi in the season of 2014.

Maxi’s 95 came off just 43 balls. The 2014 edition belonged to Maxwell and co. as they fell heart-breakingly close to clinching their maiden IPL title.

4. Ajinkya Rahane – 16 boundaries vs KXIP

The Royals’ opener scored a brisk 98 off 66 deliveries, which consisted of as many as 16 hits to the fence.

Often considered as a typical case of one season wonder, Paul Valthaty lit up the 2011 edition of India’s premier T20 tournament with his 120 against CSK.

Valthaty smashed a whopping 19 boundaries in the inning which remains a record for the most number of fours hit during a single outing

1. AB de Villiers – 19 boundaries vs MI

AB de Villiers of RCB.

The joint-topper in the aforementioned list is none other than Mr. 360. During his sensational knock at the Wankhede Stadium against Mumbai Indians, AB amassed a mindblowing 19 fours in his inning.

AB lit up the Wankhede with his 360 vision strokeplay to post a monumental 133 off 59 deliveries. He came back five months later and scored a thunderous 119 off 61 balls in South African colours at the same ground.
