5 IPL Records You Should Know
Bangalore: The Indian Premier League (IPL) season five began at a time when there is a general cricket fatigue among viewers. The money-spinning Twenty20 event that began in 2008 with endless entertainment, high-octane mix of glamour, and enormous wealth to cricketers across the globe, had a difficult ride over the last few years. Smeared with allegations of serious corruption, severe infighting and criminal investigations, the cricket extravaganza has seen a dip in viewership and sponsor interest. However, for the cricket crazy Indians, there is enough fun and bonhomie to be jubilant and the excitement never dies – And the below-mentioned records in this brief lifetime of IPL keep the event outstanding from other sporting entertainments.
Shilpa Shetty’s Rajasthan Royals holds this dubious record of scoring the lowest total in the IPL when they were bowled out for a miserable 58 runs. In the second IPL edition held in South Africa, the Royals were chasing a target of 134 runs against Mallya’s Royal Challengers Bangalore when its captain Anil Kumble wrecked the RR batting line-up with an unbelievable IPL bowling figures of 5/5.
