Punjab Kings’ Shikhar Dhawan became the first batsman in the history of the Indian Premier League to hit 800 boundaries. When he got to the landmark during his knock against Mumbai Indians, Dhawan had hit 671 boundaries and 129 sixes in the IPL.
Dhawan is sitting pretty on top of the table with 802* boundaries. RCB star Virat Kohli is second on the elite list with 768 boundaries, while Chris Gayle is at third spot with 762. David Warner has hit 734 boundaries while Rohit Sharma completes the top 5 with 731.
Dhawan attained this incredible feat just a few days after he became the first Indian batter to hit 1,000 boundaries in T20 cricket.

Meanwhile, Shikhar Dhawan also scripted a new IPL record for the most runs scored by a batter against 5-time champions MI. Dahawan, who brought up his 45th IPL fifty, went past Suresh Raina’s tally of 824 runs.
Shikhar Dhawan started his IPL career with Delhi Capitals in the inaugural season in 2008, when he scored 340 runs in 14 matches. After plying his trade for different franchises, including Sunrisers Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians, Dhawan returned to Delhi in 2019 and spent three seasons with his hometown franchise.
Shikhar Dhawan’s most prolific season came in 2020 for Delhi Capitals as they stormed to the final. In 16 matches that season, Dhawan smashed 618 runs including 2 hundreds. He followed that up with 587 runs in 2021 but parted ways with DC and was bought by Punjab Kings in the 2022 player auction.
Dhawan is the second highest run-scorer in the history of the Indian Premier League, behind Virat Kohli. He is also on the verge of becoming only the second player after Kohli to hit 6000 runs in the IPL.
