New Delhi: The Indian Premier League is the most popular T20 tournament in the world and every cricketer wants to be a part of this extravaganza. As the 12th edition of the tournament begins from March 23, here's a look at the most embarrassing records in the league over the years.
Lowest Team Score in IPL: Royal Challengers Banglore, who are widely regarded as the best-batting lineup in the tournament, scripted the worst ever team total in the history of the tournament. The team was bundled out for a paltry total of 49 runs by the Kolkata Knight Riders in a group stage encounter in the 2017 edition at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. RCB were chasing a target of 132 runs, but no batsman was able to reach double figures and the team was bowled out under ten overs.
Most extras bowled in a match: Deccan Chargers hold this record as they conceded the most number of extras (28) in a match against KKR in 2008.
Most runs conceded in a spell: Ishant Sharma holds this record as he conceded 66 runs in his four overs against Chennai Super Kings. He was playing for Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Most number of ducks in IPL: Harbhajan Singh holds the record as he has been bowled out without troubling the scorers 13 times.
Most number of losses for a team in IPL: When it comes to losing matches, Delhi Daredevils come to the forefront as they have lost a record of 91 matches in 11 seasons.
Chennai Super Kings will take on Royal Challengers Banglore in the opening match of IPL on Saturday, March 23.
