IPL is popular for the batting performances. Their quick knocks are the foundation of each group’s victories. We know that all the cricket fans love to go to the stadiums and watch the batting performances of their preferred cricketers. The fans also love to see their batsmen giving a hard time to the opponent team bowlers. 

Hence, here is the list of bowlers who has conceded the most runs in a single innings of an IPL match:

Basil Thampi

The most costly bowling in the history of the IPL tournament is from Basil Thampi. He was the young bowler at that point playing for the Sunrisers Hyderabad. In the match against RCB, in May 2018, Basil conceded a total of 70 runs in 4 overs. That cost the group a match. This bowling spell, played at Chinnaswamy Stadium, is the most costly one in IPL history even now.

Mujeeb Ur Rahman

The Kings XI Punjab bowler, who is also the Bangladesh international bowler, Mujeeb Ur Rahman has the record of second costly bowling performance in his name. In 2019, the match against SRH, he gave to the batsman a total of 66 runs in 4 overs. The teams were playing this match at Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium.
