The Indian Premier League is all set to begin early next month. As the devoted fans of the world-renowned championship await the tenth edition of the league to sweep them away, it is a good time to look back at some memorable features of the tourney’s history.
Here, we look at the top five bowlers with most wickets in IPL history. These are bowlers who, through a long period of time, have been regular match-winners for their sides. Take a look.
5. Harbhajan Singh – 119 wickets:
The Indian off-spinner has been the ace bowler for the Mumbai Indians since the first season itself and despite not having the form he once used to have Harbhajan Singh still remains one of the best IPL bowlers. He bowls a tight line and rarely offers any loose deliveries. It is difficult to get under him and hence Harbhajan produces a lot of productive overs in the middle. With his bag of doosras and off-breaks, Harbhajan Singh has taken 119 wickets in 125 IPL matches at an excellent economy rate of 7. Truly, one of the very best the league has seen.
