Highest wicket-takers for each IPL team
Fast bowlers and spinners share equal number of spots in the list.
The upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League is set to be an exciting affair. The T20-format tournament has always been demanding for the bowlers, with the smaller boundaries and the chunkier bats. But match results have always banked upon this underrated aspect of the game and many have turned out to be the silent stars, overshadowed by the more glamorous six-hitting batsmen.
Here's a list depicting the leading wicket-takers for each of the IPL franchises.
#8 Shane Watson - Rajasthan Royals
The former Australian cricketer Shane Watson is one of the most talented all-rounders in the world. He has played franchise cricket all over the planet, including the BBL, CPL, PSL and indeed the IPL.
The 36-year-old won the 'Man of the Tournament' award in RR's maiden title triumph for scoring 472 runs and picking up 17 wickets. Furthermore, he holds a unique record of scoring most runs & picking up most wickets for the same franchise, which as a matter of fact, seems impossible to replicate.
Performance for RR:
Inns - 76
Wkts - 67
Eco - 7.55
BBI - 3/10
