IPL Stats: Top 5 Bowlers Fastest To Reach 100 Wickets In IPL
IPL Stats & Records - Top 5 bowlers who have taken the least innings to reach 100 wickets.
IPL Stats & Records - The 15th season of Indian Premier League (IPL 2022) came back to India after being held away for one and a half seasons, as 2021 runners-up Kolkata Knight Riders defeated defending champions Chennai Super Kings in the season opener on March 26th at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
Some of the bowlers develop various variations and skills to boost their chances in the batter-dominated T20 format. A bowler fools the batter in a T20 game, letting him go for the big hits and getting him dismissed while trying to do so. The bowlers who are able to achieve this maintain their dominance in the T20 game despite being thrashed for runs at times.
