From the start of the IPL, the league has seen many unbelievable records. Today we will talk about the bowler having the most wickets in the IPL career. This table is topped by a Trinidadian cricketer and the former captain of the West Indies cricket team and a special member of the Chennai Super Kings, Dwayne Bravo, with 180 wickets.
At present, Lasith Malinga is in second place with 170 wickets; Amit Mishra is in third place with 166 wickets; Yuzvendra Chahal is in the same position as Amit Mishra with 166 wickets, and Piyush Chawla is in fourth place with 157 wickets.
Top five IPL bowlers by wicket total
The Chennai players have played many games with many teams. In addition to the Chennai Super Kings, the cricketer has played for Gujarat Lions and Mumbai Indians. After surpassing Lasith Malinga, DJ Bravo has become the highest wicket-taker in the IPL.
He took 180 wickets in his IPL career. Bravo is also a two-time winner of the Purple Cap, in 2015 and in 2013. MS Dhoni used Bravo in the best way possible and made him one of the best death bowlers in the IPL.
With 170 wickets in his career, Malinga is undoubtedly one of the best bowlers the IPL will ever see. He is one of his kind with the perfect yorkers. He has proved and maintained the kind of consistency a bowler would never have done in the past or in the present.
He was at the top of the table for a long time before Bravo exceeded him in the tally. The Mumbai Indians have won a number of matches because of this man. His last appearance was in the 2019 season. Out of 170 wickets, Malinga picked 90 wickets in the death overs only.
The next bowler on the list is Indian spinner Amit Mishra, who was one of the best spinners in his prime and brought victory numerous times for his team. He has 166 wickets in 154 games. Mishra, who is also the third-highest wicket-taker in IPL history, went unsold in the 2022 mega auction.
He is a legendary cricket player and still has an impact on cricket. He has a great league economy of 7.35 and has been instrumental in taking wickets in the middle overs.
Yuzvendra Chahal, a former Royal Challengers Bangalore and current Rajasthan Royals leg spinner, has tied Amit Mishra’s score of 166 wickets in the ongoing 2022 edition. Chahal has been an important bowler for RCB, who have traditionally been a batting-heavy club.
The spinner has done a spectacular job for RVB and now he is doing his best for Rajasthan Royals too. Chahal was signed by the Rajasthan Royals for 6.5 crores for the 2022 season.
Piyush Chawla, who was purchased by the Mumbai Indians in the mini auction for the IPL 2021 season, has taken 157 wickets in 165 matches at a strike rate of 27.39 and an economy rate of 7.88.
Piyush Chawla has previously played for the Chennai Super Kings, Kings XI Punjab, and Kolkata Knight Riders. He was purchased by the Mumbai Indians in 2021 for 2.40 cr. The base price for Piyush Chawla was 50 lakh for the 2021 season.
