As much as the players from the Caribbean are known for their power-hitting, they are popular for their fearsome bowling too.
DJ Bravo is the highest wicket-taker in the history of the CPL with 97 wickets to his name in 69 matches. Following him are K Santokie and RR Emrit with 85 wickets each in 58 and 75 matches respectively. Bravo also holds the record of taking the most number of wickets in a single season of the CPL. In the 2015 season, he took 28 wickets in just 13 matches with an average of 11.71.
Shakib Al Hasan’s six-wicket haul for just six runs is the best bowling figure in
the CPL ever. He bowled four overs out of which one was a maiden and bowled with an economy of 1.5. He is also the only bowler to take more than five wickets in an innings in the CPL.
A total of seven bowlers have taken a five or more wickets haul in an inning in the CPL. The list includes David Weise, Raymon Reifer, Shakib Al Hasan, Fidel Edwards, Sohail Tanvir, DJ Bravo and Hayden Walsh. Sunil Narine's economy rate of 5.52 is the best by any bowler in the CPL. He is closely followed by two other spinners, Imran Tahir and Rashid Khan. They have an economy rate of 5.79 and 5.82 respectively. Interestingly, there is only one seamer among the 11 next bowlers in the list.
