Everyone is excited to experience the IPL 2020. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has already confirmed that the United Arab Emirates (UAE) will host the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) between 19th September and 10th November 2020.

In every year, we see that some teams and some players are breaking some old IPL records and creating the new IPL records. However, there are still some records which are unharmed since IPL 2008, and it is very hard to break even in the IPL 2020.

Here we are talking about the top four IPL 2008 records which are unlikely to be broken in IPL 2020

Most extras in an innings

During the match between the hosts Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and the visitors Deccan Chargers (DC) at Kolkata on 20th April 2008, the visitors conceded a total of 28 extras during the second innings, when the hosts were batting. Among those extras, the visiting bowlers conceded 15 wides, eight leg-byes, four byes and one no-ball. While Deccan Chargers scored only 110 runs (18.4 overs) in the first innings, their too many extras helped the KKR to win that match by five wickets with six balls to spare (112/5).

It is still the record of most extras in an IPL innings. During the Dharamsala match in IPL 2011 (17th May 2011) between Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), RCB came very near to the record of most extras in an IPL innings as they conceded a total of 27 runs extras (14 leg-byes, 7 byes, 4 wides and 2 no-balls) in the first innings.

While it is very hard to break this record, especially when the bowlers are now more cautious at this particular point, the present record of most extras in an IPL innings is likely to be unharmed in the IPL 2020.
