Dot balls are infrequent in the IPL, as batters generally prioritize boundary hits.In cricket, boundaries are the source of the majority of runs and are necessary for thrilling innings.

Cricket has two distinct categories of boundaries:

Four, which occurs when the ball makes contact with the ground and exits the field, and Six, which occurs when the ball exits the field while still airborne.
