#7 Ashish Nehra has bowled the most economical spell in the IPL history (after completing full quota of four overs)
In the 10 editions of the Indian Premier League, the most economical spells ever bowled have been by Ashish Nehra and Fidel Edwards. They share the exact same bowling figures - both conceded just 6 runs in their 4 overs, and took 1 wicket each and also bowled 1 maiden over each.
Representing Delhi Daredevils in IPL 2009, Nehra bowled a splendid spell against the Kings XI Punjab. On the other hand, the West Indian fast bowler Fidel Edwards had those figures while playing for the Deccan Chargers against the Kolkata Knight Riders.
Interestingly, both these performances occurred in the 2009 IPL which was played in South Africa.
