One of the big reasons behind the success of the Indian Premier League has been the top-quality batting and the ability of the batters to post humongous scores. Breaching the 200-run mark, which is otherwise considered a herculean task, has become a rather common trend in the IPL. There is power and pedigree in batting orders and hence, the league is one of the most-successful tournaments in the world.
