2016 IPL was all about Virat Kohli, He single handedly broke many records. He scored 4 centuries in this season and became the first captain to score 500+ runs in three separate IPL seasons (634 in 2013, 505 in 2015 and 973 in 2016). Sachin Tendulkar had scored 500+ runs in the 2010 and 2011 IPL season as captain of Mumbai Indians (618 in 2010 while 553 in 2011), He became first batsman to complete 4000 runs in the IPL and he also became the first man in IPL history to score 900+ runs in a single season.
