Most Dot Balls in IPL

Share

Most Dot Balls in IPL – There is no event in T20s that creates pressure on the batting side like a dot ball. Technically, a wicket is also a dot ball and it is touted to be the best dot ball. In a high-octane format like T20, a dot ball is worth its gold.

Harbhajan Singh is one of the pioneers when it comes to spin bowling in T20 cricket. He is not a genuine wicket taker but one of the best defensive bowlers, the format has ever seen. The fact the he was a finger spinner and managed to realize the needs of T20s during that time was a huge thing. He is the bowler with most dot balls in the league.

Lets take a look at the bowlers with most dot balls in Indian Premier League.

The second on the list is Bhuvneshwar Kumar. He is one of the best all phase bowlers in IPL history. His new ball spell against Chennai Super Kings in the final of 2018 IPL is one for the ages. The way he troubled Shane Watson in the powerplay will be remembered for a long time by the fans.

Another off spinner finds his name in the list, this time, its Ravichandran Ashwin. He has the third highest number of dot balls by a bowler in the league. He is an extraordinarily shrewd bowler who likes to play with the batsmen’s minds.
