He is followed by Mumbai Indians' Rohit Sharma, Lucknow Super Giants captain KL Rahul, Shubman Gill of Gujarat Titans and Sunil Narine of Kolkata Knight Riders.
Among the top 20 run-makers, Head has the best strike rate, a remarkable 216. His team-mate Abhishek Sharma follows close on his heels with 215.96, and Heinrich Klaasen, also of Sunrisers, is on 198.51.

Jasprit Bumrah of Mumbai Indians is No. 1 on the IPL wicket-takers' list. His 13 wickets have come at an economy of 6.37, the best of any bowler in the top 20.
Yuzvendra Chahal, who during the Monday night game against Mumbai Indians became the first bowler in the IPL to take 200 wickets, is in second place; he also has 13 wickets but at an economy of 8.83. Harshal Patel, the Punjab Kings seamer, also has 13, at an economy rate of 9.58.
