Chris Gayle is the undisputed King of IPL, making no less than 5 centuries in the history of the league where no batsman has even made 4. Gayle also owns the record of highest IPL score = 175 and fastest IPL century = 30 balls. There have two batsmen to make 3 hundreds = Virat Kohli & AB de Villiers and 6 batsman to make 2 individual tons in IPL = David Warner, Virender Sehwag, Shane Watson, Adam Gilchrist, Brendon McCullum, Murali Vijay.
