IPL 2019: Best bowling figures in IPL history
Players from all around the world light up the stage in the IPL with some sparkling performances. International as well as domestic players give their everything in order to help their teams win the coveted IPL trophy. Also because of the fact that stakes are extremely high in the IPL, players have to perform according to their reputation. In the process, the fans are treated to some terrific cricket.
Even though T20 is considered to be a batsman's game, there is no better sight than bowlers ruling the roost. Over the years, bowlers have come up with some superlative performances that have trumped the batsmen successfully. Here are the top 10 bowling figures in IPL history.
#10 Andrew Tye (Gujarat Lions) - 4-0-17-5
Andrew Tye is a T20 specialist bowler. The Australian has been fairly successful in the IPL as well. He has the ability to bowl the knuckle ball and slower balls which make him a difficult bowler to face, especially in death overs. While playing for the Gujarat Lions against Rising Pune Supergiant in 2017, Tye took 5 wickets in his quota of 4 overs. His 5 wickets included a hat-trick that he took in the last over of the innings. Moreover, while his fellow bowlers were giving away runs at more 9 runs per over, Tye gave away just 17 runs.
#9 Amit Mishra (Delhi Daredevils) - 4-0-17-5
Amit Mishra has been highly effective in the IPL. The leg-spinner has outfoxed opposition batsmen by his flight on many occasions. In a game against the Deccan Chargers in 2008, Mishra bowled an outstanding spell where he picked up 5 wickets while giving away just 17 runs. Mishra took the crucial wickets of Adam Gilchrist, Shahid Afridi and Herschelle Gibbs and quashed the Deccan Chargers' aspirations to win the match. Chasing a huge target of 195, the Chargers reached 182 and lost the match by 12 runs, thanks to Mishra's efforts.
