The BBL which is also known as the Big Bash League is played in Australia during the time we are writing this article. There are a lot of batters who have scored lots of runs in BBL History and made a name for themselves and got into their national teams.

The BBL is one of the premier T20 league competitions in the world and the quality of cricket played is amazing as well and the batters have to play vegg well to clear the boundary for hitting sixes as the boundaries are long in Australia. So , let’s look at the Top 5 Highest Run Scorers in BBL History.

1. Chris Lynn (2862 Runs): 


Chris Lynn is the most prolific batter in BBL History and he has school the most amount of runs in the tournament so far. He is one of the most destructive batters in the league and his sixes clear the ground and not just the boundary ropes. He wins matches single handedly for his team Brisbane Heat in the BBL. He has an incredible strike rate of over 150 while hitting all those runs showing how good of a player he really is. And he has a lot of years left playing in this league so he will score more and more runs and the fans will get to see his destructiveness from a close for a long time.


2. Aaron Finch (2431 Runs): 

He is the reigning Australia captain in the 20 overs format and recently he led his nation to their first T20 world cup earlier this year. He is one of the legends of the BBL and he has won a lot of matches for the Melbourne Renegades over the years. He also has a lot of playing years left in the BBL so he will also get a lot more runs and maybe catch Chris Lynn to the top spot in this list. He is a remarkable stroke maker with the skills to hit fours and sixes all around the ground.


3. Glenn Maxwell (2368 Runs): 

Glenn Maxwell is one of the leading batters in the BBL at the moment. His performances have gone up and up and he has become more consistent in the shortest format of the game for both club and country. He plays the most unorthodox cricket and it’s a joy to see Glenn Maxwell at his best and see those switch hits and reverse sweeps. He has scored this many runs at an unbelievable strike rate of just under 150 and he will only get better in the years to come and maybe become the highest run scorer in BBL History in the future.


4. D’Arcy Short (2247 Runs): 

The most incredible thing about D’Arcy Short and his incredible run scoring is that he has got this many runs in half the time than the others that have got close to his runs in double the years played so it shows how special of a talent he really is. He averages over 40 and has a strike rate of over 135 which is Incredible for a batter to have. He is a consistent run scoring machine for Hobart Hurricanes and there is absolutely no doubt that his peak is yet to come and he will most likely go to the top if he keeps up this pace of run scoring.


5. Shaun Marsh (2196 Runs): 

Shaun Marsh is one is the greats of the shortest format of the game. He started in 2008 in the IPL and gradually got better and better and in 2011 started playing the BBL in Australia and he has scored a lot of runs over his BBL career. He is a technically sound player who also knows how to hit big sixes when needed and can also anchor the innings when his team is in trouble. He is a special player and maybe he doesn’t have many years ahead of him but he will make the most of how many years he will play the BBL.
