IPL 2021 Team-Wise Players With Most Wickets Among Current Players


IPL Most Wickets: It’s only a couple of days since the India v England series ended, but the cricket fans are already waiting with bated breath for the start of IPL 2021. India’s cash-rich tournament will start on April 9 as the defending champions Mumbai Indians open their campaign with the game against Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore.

IPL Most Wickets

The team with the best balance is likely to win the ultimate thing, and Mumbai Indians (MI) is certainly everyone’s favorite in that regard. The batting and bowling department of the five-time IPL champions make them the envy of every team. They remain the team to beat. But ahead of the IPL 2021, every team has shored up including the bowling department. There is at least one special bowler on every team’s roster. Here are IPL 2021 Team-Wise Current Players With Most Wickets.

1. CSK Most Wickets – Dwayne Bravo

The 37-year-old West Indian can still work his magic on the cricket field like he used to do in his prime. CSK captain MS Dhoni trusts Brave- the bowler more than Bravo-the batsman.
His quick action and a unique skill to change speed without any noticeable difference in the action make him a dangerous player.

Dwayne Bravo is the leading wicket-taker for CSK amongst the current bowlers.

Dwayne Bravo IPL Stats:

  • Matches: 140
  • Innings: 137
  • Overs: 452
  • Wickets: 153
  • Best Bowling: 4/22
  • 4-Wicket: 02
  • 5-Wicket: 00

Huge Blow For IPL Teams

2. DC Most Wickets – Amit Mishra

Delhi Capitals‘ (DC) leading wicket-taker is Amit Mishra. He may not be a guaranteed starter in DC’s playing 11 in IPL 2021, but there’s no denying the fact that the 38-year-old is a game-changer on his day.

Amit Mishra IPL Stats:

  • Matches: 150
  • Innings: 150
  • Overs: 526.5

3. KKR Most Wickets – Sunil Narine

Efficient, accurate, and miser. The West Indian star is a player of unique traits. The 32-year-old can be unplayable and is the sort of player the captains turn to during difficult situations. Narine is also the leading wicket-taker for Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL.

  • Innings: 119
  • Overs: 464.2

4. MI Most Wickets – Jasprit Bumrah

With Lasith Malinga retiring from IPL, Jaspirt Bumrah is now the leading wicket-taker amongst the current players on Mumbai Indians (MI) roster. The Indian international deserves to take the reigns from Malinga, due to some similarities between the duo. Like Malinga, Bumrah has an uncanny bowling action and is hard to score against.

Jasprit bumraho IPL Stats:

  • Matches: 92
  • Innings: 92
  • Overs: 348.4

5. Punjab Kings Most Wickets – Mohammed Shami

It goes without saying that the Indian team missed Mohammed Shami during all three formats in the recently-concluded India vs England series. Shami has come a long way from being inconsistent and is now one of the best bowlers in international cricket. Punjab Kings‘ chances will depend a lot on how Shami performs in the tournament.’

A few eyebrows were raised when Rajasthan Royals shelled out in excess of 11 crores for Jaydev Unadkat services ahead of the 2018 IPL season. His final output may not have backed that sheer amount, but the 29-year-old has produced moments of brilliance at times. He is the leading wicket-taker on RR’s roster ahead of IPL 2021.
