Most Wickets in IPL

A batsman-dominated game, we've heard it over and over again. However, it should be mentioned that most of the time, it is the bowler who changes the game in his favor. For a team to win a competition, they need a solid squad of bowlers. This is also true for the IPL, the world's largest T20 event. Teams with great bowlers have done well throughout the years, while those teams who suffer in this area tend to lag behind.

It is well-known that the Indian Premier League (IPL) provides a platform for some of the world's best players to shine on the international stage. In a competition filled with some of the finest players in the world, bowlers had a difficult time establishing a name for themselves. As a result of their persistence, certain bowlers have been able to maintain their rankings over the years. Bowlers with the most wickets in IPL history are ranked on their consistency alone.

Lasith Malinga

Mumbai Indians, five-time IPL winners, have had the most matches played by a Sri Lankan pacer in the Indian Premier League (IPL). In 122 IPL games, he has collected 170 wickets. A total of six times in his career, Malinga has taken four wickets in a match, and once he took five for 13. In the coming years of IPL, the 37-year-old legend will not be seen on the field because he has taken retirement.

Amit Mishra

For the first time in his 13 years as a spinner, the 38-year-old played for the Delhi Capitals in the IPL in 2021. Captains have long valued Mishra's bowling in stressful moments, and Mishra has been that spinner for many years. His wicket-taking record in 147 matches totals 166 wickets.

Just a few more wickets separate Mishra from the record for most wickets. Due to Malinga's absence from the IPL, Mishra will have the opportunity to beat his record in the coming season of IPL.

Piyush Chawla

Piyush Chawla, a native of Uttar Pradesh, is another IPL player who has handled himself with ease. Chawla is the third most prolific IPL bowler of all time, with 156 wickets. His 156 wickets at an outstanding average of 27.32 in the previous thirteen editions of the league are a testament to his ability. After playing for Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai Super Kings, Chennai Super Kings released the 32-year-old before the 2021 IPL auction. During the IPL 2021 auction, the reigning champion Mumbai Indians purchased Chawla for Rs 2.40 crore. Piyush has been through it in his IPL journey, from spinning in the power play to delivering the death overs.

Dwayne Bravo

Dwayne Bravo, CSK's outstanding all-rounder, has been a key player in the IPL tournaments. Bravo has been vital in CSK's IPL effort throughout the years, taking 156 wickets. Dhoni's go-to guy on most occasions, the all-rounder has delivered time and again. As a result of his skill to regularly take wickets at regular intervals, Bravo has been a popular IPL online betting choice throughout his campaign. During his prime, his death bowling talent was a secret to most hitters across the globe.

Harbhajan Singh

Because of his wicket-taking skills in IPL history, Harbhajan Singh is now ranked 5th all-time. The IPL career of Harbhajan Singh has been a remarkable success, with 150 wickets to his name. In a ten-year adventure with the Mumbai Indians, he won the cup three times. But in 2018, he moved to Chennai Super Kings, where he may see the team win a second IPL title after five years. It was thought that T20 was a batsman's game till Singh came along and proved everyone otherwise.
