Check out which all bowlers have taken the most number of wickets.

T20 cricket is largely a batter’s game, as we’ve all heard.

It should be emphasized, however, that most of the time, it is a bowler who makes a difference for his team.

Teams all over the world have realized that winning a tournament necessitates a good bowling group.

The IPL, the world’s largest T20 tournament, is no exception.

Over the years, it has been noticed that teams with good bowlers perform rather well, while those with poor bowlers tend to fall behind.

In this article, we’ll look at the five bowlers who have taken the most wickets in the history of the IPL. Four of the five players in this group have been with the league since its inception. Three of the top five bowlers are spinners, while the remaining two are pacers.

1. Lasith Malinga

Lasith Malinga, is the greatest pacer in IPL history, with a total of 170 wickets in 122 games. Regardless of the fact that 108 of his wickets have come in death overs, where batters try to score more rapidly and frequently get out in the process, his overall numbers are far too impressive to be questioned. Malinga debuted with the Mumbai Indians in 2009 and last played for them in the 2019 season. Even at that point in his career, his last over in the 2019 championship game was enough to demonstrate his superiority.

2. Dwayne Bravo

The second name on the list is Dwayne Bravo, who has 167 wickets. He is the second pacer after Lasith Malinga on the list. Bravo has been an important element of Chennai’s bowling attack, especially in the death overs. With MS Dhoni as captain, Bravo’s potential has been exploited to the team’s advantage. With the ball, the all-rounder has averaged 24.31 in 151 IPL games.

3. Amit Mishra

In 154 games, Amit Mishra has taken 166 wickets. Mishra, the third-highest wicket-taker in IPL history, went unsold in the 2022 mega auction. In the league, he has a remarkable economy rate of 7.35 and has been essential in grabbing wickets in the middle overs.

4. Harbhajan Singh

With 150 wickets in 163 games, Harbhajan Singh is now rated seventh in the world. His economy rate was 7.07 in the league, while the average was 26.86. After playing in the IPL for MI, CSK, and KKR, he quit all forms of cricket in December 2021.

5. Piyush Chawla

Piyush Chawla is the fourth-highest wicket-taker in IPL history, having been purchased by Mumbai Indians in a mini-auction for IPL 2021. With an average of 27.39 and an economy of 7.88, he has 157 wickets in 165 matches. Piyush Chawla has previously played in the lucrative league for Chennai, Punjab, and Kolkata.
