IPL players with the best bowling figures

There are some bowlers who have prospered in the Indian Premier League comfortably due to their intelligence and talent.

One of the hardest things to do in the IPL is bowl well. because IPL wickets, which are primarily flat and dead wickets, are favorable to spin bowling. To get wickets, fast bowlers must be adaptable and spinners must be unafraid. However, some bowlers have prospered in the Indian Premier League comfortably due to their intelligence and talent. Look at the IPL players who have the best bowling figures.

Alzarri joseph

Alzarri Joseph, a West Indian pace bowler, currently holds the record for the best IPL bowling figure with a 6/12 against Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2019. Only 136 runs were scored by Mumbai, but Alzarri put forth the most effort to limit Hyderabad to 96 runs. Unfortunately, after that season, Joseph did not play any more cricket in the IPL.


Sohail Tanvir

Sohail Tanvir, a left-arm swing bowler from Pakistan, takes second place for recording the best bowling figure. In the 2008 IPL, he had a 6 for 14 bowling efficiency against Chennai Super Kings. It’s understandable why Tanvir won the Purple Cap in the first season after taking 22 wickets in 11 games, which was crucial to Rajasthan Royals winning their first championship.

Adam Zampa

When Adam Zampa was a member of the Rising Pune Supergiants in 2016, he added his name to the list by taking 6 wickets while giving up 19 runs against Sunrisers Hyderabad. The only spinner to take six wickets in the IPL is Zampa. Despite his brutal bowling, RPS was unable to defeat SRH because they exceeded the target of 134 runs. The leg-spinner from Australia only allowed 4.75 runs per over.

Anil Kumble

Anil Kumble, who has taken the most wickets for India in all formats, has returned with the fourth-best bowling average in the Indian Premier League. Kumble bowled the most efficient IPL spell in history in 2009 against the Rajasthan Royals, finishing with 5 for 5 in 3.1 overs. The lowest total (58) ever in the Indian Premier League was set by RR as a result of RCB’s lethal bowling.

Akash Madhwal

Young seamer from Mumbai Indians Akash Madhwal also has a few noteworthy IPL performances, one of which earned him a spot on the list of players with the best bowling figures. When Madhwal faced Lucknow Super Giants in 2023, he returned with 5/5 in 3 overs. Madhwal is a wicket-taker who emphasizes good length. To reach 183, LSG was bundled out for 101, and Madhwal was named the game’s Most Valuable Player.
