IPL is all about entertainment and there is nothing more entertaining than watching the bowl race towards the boundary. There is always a pressure on batsman during the T20 format as the number of bowls are less and the game becomes really aggressive. This enables the batsmen to unleash the beast within and they end up hitting the bowl really hard. Some hit the sitting stands and some of the bowl goes out of the stadium.
