T20 cricket was a bit harsh for bowlers as the batsmen got licenses from the team management to play shots from the first ball itself. The evolution of T20 cricket has introduced some outrageous shots which have become a nightmare for bowlers. Bowlers have suffered some serious blows from hitters in their shortest form, and the Indian Premier League as the world’s largest franchise has seen some world-class bowlers take hits a lot. On Wednesday night, Pat Cummins added Daniels Sams to the roster by smashing it all over the park during the Kolkata Knight Riders match against the Indians in Mumbai.
We take a look at the five most expensive sums in IPL history.
37 – B Parameshwaran vs RCP 2011
During the 2011 season, P Parameshwaran suffered Chris Gayle’s brutal power rage in a match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and the now-defunct Kochi Tuskers Kerala. Gayle started the match with a six in a row and unfortunately for Parameshwaran, the second ball was a ball without a ball. The Southern Claw then hammered the post-border deliveries and was followed by sixty savages again. In the last ball, the boss universe smashed Kochi’s ball in order to have his name recorded in a junk record book.

37- Harshall Patel vs CSK 2021
Harshal Patel had a dream of running in IPL 2021. He was also the leading wicketmaker in the mega event with 17 wickets under his belt from seven matches. He also picked a five point distance during the opening match of the Royal Challengers Bangalore against the Mumbai Indians (MI).
35- Daniel Sams vs KKR 2022
On Wednesday night, Pat Cummins probably played the roles of his life when he hit the 50th fastest in IPL history – 14 balls. But at his expense, the name of fellow countryman Daniel Sams was recorded in the junk registry book. Cummins punished Sams throughout the park as he started again by smashing him straight to the ground followed by a border at the square. After that, the Aussie test leader stopped at nothing and broke six in a row. On the fifth ball, Cummins was caught in the long inning but unfortunately for Sams, the ball was disallowed and the hit stole two runs. In free delivery, he broke the limits and then finished the finish and matched the style to the max.
