It is never an easy task to maintain consistency at this level. To have batting averages on the higher side at the IPL level tells you a lot about the player.

KL Rahul leads the highest batting average chart in IPL. He has represented three teams in IPL, namely Sunrisers Hyderabad, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Punjab Kings (Kings XI Punjab). He is the captain of Lucknow Supergiants at the moment.
