New Delhi, April 22: The thrill of the Indian Premier League 2021 is speaking to the heads of the people. After 15 matches of this season, Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings are on top with six (+1.142) points. In the last 15th match of IPL 2021, Kolkata lower-order Australian Pat Patmins (Pat Cummins), batting aggressively, scored an unbeaten half-century knock of 66 off just 34 balls. During this, he also scored 30 runs in one over of Sam Curran. Let me tell you that this is not the first time that a player has looted so much runs in one over of a bowler in the IPL. Talk about the five bowlers who have scored the most runs in an over so far in IPL history, their names are as follows:
The first name in this list comes from the legendary Caribbean batsman Chris Gayle. Gayle scored 36 runs in one over against Kochi Tuskers Kerala on 8 May 2011 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai (Chennai). Gayle hit a total of four sixes and three fours in this over.
