Cricket is a team sport and it is absolutely imperative for the players to operate in collective rhythm to get the right result. Even if one player makes a costly mistake, it might severely impact the overall performance of the team.
The Indian Premier League was launched in the year 2008 and since then it has completed sixteen seasons so far. In all these seasons, batters turned out to be the most fearsome weapons as they simply tonked even the best bowlers for maximums.
It would be a grave mistake for any bowler who pitches the ball right in the slot or in the batsman’s arc as he would get punished right away. In this listicle, we will take a look at the seven bowlers who conceded the most sixes in an IPL season.
