IPL Records - Top Five Bowlers With Most Wickets
T20 is a format dominated by batsmen but it is the bowlers who make it more interesting. Bowling in this format can be a pretty hard and daunting task. Bowlers often find themselves in a tough situation yet only these situations help us in differentiating best from the rest.
Here are the top 5 best bowlers with most wickets in the history of IPL.
#5. Dwayne Bravo - He has recently become the first bowler to take more than 500 wickets in the T20 format. This is good enough reason to add him to this list. In IPL alone, he has taken 147 wickets in 131 innings he has bowled. He takes a wicket every 17 balls and bowls at an average of 24. He will be continuing his association with Chennai Super Kings this season too.
#4. Piyush Chawla
Another leg spinner in the list which has created a great impact in every bowling line up he has been part of. Chawla, in 157 matches, has taken 150 wickets at a strike rate of 20.82. He is also a part of the Chennai Super Kings squad this season.
#3. Harbhajan Singh
Some say T20 is a format suited for youngsters but he has defied this assumption in each season he has played. Every season, whenever Harbhajan gets an opportunity he makes sure that he creates enough impact in the match. In 160 matches, Bhajji has taken 150 wickets at an economy of 7. The off-spinner is expected to play yet another season with Chennai Super Kings.
