From Ishant to Thampi: 10 worst bowling figures in IPL

Basil Thampi - 0/70 in 4 overs (2018)

The Sunrisers Hyderabad bowler tops the most expensive figures in the IPL after leaking 70 runs in just 4 overs against Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2018. Thampi, who remained wicket-less, was hit for six sixes and five fours at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium.

Ishant Sharma - 0/66 in 4 overs (2013)

Sharma, another Sunrisers Hyderabad bowler, takes the second spot after a horrid outing against the Chennai Super Kings on May 08. The tall fast bowler was clobbered around the park for 66 runs in 4 overs at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium.

Mujeeb Ur Rehman - 0/66 in 4 overs (2019)

Umesh Yadav - 0/65 in 4 overs (2013)
