Top run scorers of IPL 2024: 

1) Riyan Parag (RR): 

With another half-century on Monday, Riyan Parag has moved to the top of the run-scoring charts, displacing Virat Kohli from the position he previously held. Parag has scored 181 runs in the 3 matches so far at a strike rate of 160.18 and an impressive average of 181.

Parag’s unbeaten knock of 54 runs helped Rajasthan Royals to their third win of the season and to the top of the IPL points table.
