Most Wickets in IPL: Despite flat pitches being used in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL 2022) season, there have been a number of standout bowling performances so far. Both the Indian and overseas bowlers have come up with the best of their individual efforts to trap one of the best batsmen so far in this edition of the T20 tournament. From Umesh Yadav’s remarkable bowling spells at the start of the season, the fans have witnessed a stunning hattrick from Rajasthan Royals leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal as well.
