M Siddharth creates unwanted IPL record with 3 no balls in a never-ending over

While the three no-balls may be a blemish on his IPL record, M Siddharth will undoubtedly be looking to learn from this experience. Maintaining accuracy and composure are crucial skills for any bowler, and M Siddharth will be aiming to tighten his control in future matches.

Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) secured a convincing 33-run victory against the Gujarat Titans (GT) in their recent IPL 2024 match. However, the game also saw an unusual bowling performance from Lucknow’s left-arm spinner, M Siddharth.

M Siddharth: Three No-Balls and Record

M Siddharth’s fifth over of the GT innings became a talking point, and not for the best reasons. The young spinner struggled with his line and length, bowling a staggering three no-balls in a single over.

This unwanted feat earned him a place in the IPL record books for the most no-balls bowled by a spinner in an over. Previously, the record was held jointly by Amit Mishra and others with two no-balls in an over.

2 – Amit Mishra in 2016

Lucky Escapes for LSG

Despite the free hits gifted by the no-balls, Gujarat batsmen Sai Sudharsan and Shubman Gill were unable to capitalize on the opportunity.

M Siddharth eventually managed to complete the over after nine deliveries, conceding 12 runs. While he didn’t pick up any wickets in that particular over, he finished the match with economical figures of 4-0-29-0.

M Siddharth: Overall Performance

This forgettable over doesn’t overshadow Siddharth’s overall IPL performance. Coming into the Gujarat match, he had played two games, taking two wickets in his first outing and one in his second, including the prized scalp of Virat Kohli.

Across his T20 career so far, he has bagged 19 wickets in just nine matches, including three four-wicket hauls.
