Indian batsman Suresh Raina failed to complete his 5000 runs in IPL and missed the chance to became the first batsman ever in IPL history to achieve this feat. Raina scored 32 runs in the 2018 IPL Finale and got caught behind by Goswami. Before this game, he was just 47 runs behind to complete this target. However, Chennai Super Kings won the tournament by defeating Sunrisers Hyderabad by 6 wickets and seized their third IPL Title. Chennai Super Kings who was playing after two years of the ban dominated single handly the Opposites and clinched the title. Batsman Shane Watson smashed his 4th T20 Century in IPL history and it was third against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Behind Suresh Raina, the Indian Skipper Virat Kohli was predicted as the batsman to score the first Individual 5000 runs in IPL.
