Over the years, the IPL or Indian Premier League has entertained us. And it’s been a festival for cricket lovers. While the next IPL 2021 season is around the corner, in this article, I am going to look back at the best bowling figures in IPL.
Because it is not the batsman who always kills the match, bowlers are also equally responsible. Knowing about these bowlers would also be helpful if you are planning to bet on IPL using Parimatch.
Anyway, let’s just go ahead and check out the best bowling figures of all time:
It would not be wrong to say that bowling a dot ball in T20 cricket is a treat to the bowlers. Since dot balls build a huge pressure on the opposition batting lineup. Also, it helps the bowler to take wickets.
Plus, it is also extremely hard for the bowlers to gain great bowling figures as batmans are the ones that rule the trend. However, in T20 games, batsmen can turn the match single-handedly by hitting great scores.
But similarly, bowlers can also help in winning matches by bowling effectively and prevents the batsmen from scoring runs.
Talking about IPL, well, it is a place where the rookie players get to show their talent and skills. IPL has so many amazing bowlers who have helped different franchises to win the game.
