It goes without saying that sport thrives on recognition. For any sportsperson, it is an act of duty towards the discipline to shape the standard of the sport. Eventually, setting high-benchmark is always rewarded with greater recognition in the sporting world.

For any sportsperson, dreams come true when they finish on the podium after the end of a successful tournament. The script remains the same as far as cricket is concerned. While few greats of the game go on to win the race, some miss out to bag the golden glory as they fell short of few inches. Such is the story of every individual who pours in their blood and sweat to touch the title of honour.

On that note, while the cricketing fever remains at an all-time high, this article attempts to enlist the names of those legends who have played the most number of matches for multiple teams in the cash-rich league but unfortunately, they have not bagged the champion’s tag irrespective of their relentless efforts. So, without wasting any further time, let us get started.

Here’s the list of players with most IPL matches without being part of a title win:

5. Chris Gayle – 125

The West-Indian cricketing giant is known for his massive out-of-the-park sixes which dramatically ends up in the loss of the ball. Christopher Henry Gayle is a treat to the viewer’s eyes. His ballistic knock of 175* still continues to be a talking point in the cricketing arena.

Audience drenched in the shower of sixes is what makes the Universal Boss the crowd-favourite. The veteran has amassed 4484 runs in 125 matches under his massive belt. The southpaw is currently warming the benches for Kings XI Punjab.

Albeit, the 41-year-old would be excited to put an end to the drought of the IPL trophy. The heavy-weight is yet to feature in the playing XI squad in the 13th edition of the IPL.  Given a chance in the match, he will showcase the propensity of power-hitting from the word go.
