Top 5 death bowlers in the Indian Premier League
#4 Dwayne Bravo
The 'Champion' from Trinidad has been quite outstanding at the death. The change of pace and wicket to wicket deliveries has been the key to his success. It gets difficult for the batsmen when a bowler is executing slower balls at the end of innings on a regular basis.
The slow Indian tracks add to the misery of the batsmen. Bravo has been a great exponent of the slower ball and causes the batsmen to mistime their shots, when they try to hit everything out of the park.
The 34-year-old all-rounder started off his career with the Mumbai Indians. He began to make a mark in the tournament after joining the Chennai Super Kings in 2011, and his game improved a lot under the captaincy of M.S. Dhoni. After CSK was banned for two years, he was a part of the Gujarat Lions franchise, and made crucial contributions will the ball in the death overs.
Bravo has already won the purple cap twice, with 122 wickets in his IPL career so far. Apart from being a great bowler, he is a brilliant batsman and fielder as well. He is a utility cricketer and can contribute in all three departments of the game.
He is a familiar face as far as franchise cricket is concerned, playing t20 cricket for different franchises around the globe.
