IPL 2023: Amit Mishra To Yuzvendra Chahal, List Of Active Indian Players To Have 100 IPL Wickets. The 16th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) is underway, and some of the biggest matches are being played. Due to how these big hitters fire sixes into the bleachers, some people perceive IPL to be a batsmen’s game. However, for true cricket fans, the IPL offers an all-around cricketing experience, which includes outstanding bowling numbers and unplayable balls delivered by players.

In the batsman-dominated T20 format, several bowlers employ different variations and talents to increase their chances. In a T20 match, a bowler deceives the batsman, allowing him to go for the big smashes and being removed as a result. Even if they are occasionally battered for runs, bowlers who can accomplish this maintain their dominance in the T20 game.

This article is about the top bowlers who were able to host the flags of their names by bowling in the World’s wealthiest cricket league. However, this article will not cover every bowler who has 100 IPL wickets; rather, we will address active Indian bowlers who have achieved this remarkable statistic.

Active Indian Players To Have 100 IPL Wickets

Yuzvendra Chahal

Yuzvendra Chahal is one of the greatest names in Indian cricket, and he is one of the few spinners who continues to command the wickets with his amazing methods and talents in the IPL. Yuzi lacks the quick-arm action that may make a googly tough to spot, thus his wrong’un does not concern batters as much as Rashid Khan’s does. And, unlike most current legs pinners, Chahal isn’t exceptionally quick through the air, making stepping out against a bowler difficult.

With 177 wickets in 136 matches, this 32-year-old leg spinner is now the top Indian IPL wicket-taker. Chahal is also has a Purple cap (IPL 2023)  with his name on it.

Amit Mishra

Amit Mishra is one of the few bowlers who has competed in the IPL since its inception. This seasoned Indian spinner has a track record of dispatching big players and grabbing wickets when necessary. Mishra has changed several IPL clubs, but one thing remains constant: his ability to break big partnerships.

This 40-year-old leg spinner possesses a wide range of balls and is quite tough to play. His varieties include the Googly, Straighter One, Top Spinner, Quicker One, and Cross seam delivery. He is a lethal baller even at the age of 40. With 169 wickets in 156 appearances, he is now the second-best Indian IPL wicket-taker.

Ravichandran Ashwin

India’s most lethal Off-Spinner, Ravichandran Ashwin, is capable of throwing all six balls in each of six distinct angles. Ashwin belongs to a new generation of spin bowlers who do not turn the ball extremely sharply but rather take advantage of the post-DRS phenomenon of more LBWs being called by bowling extremely straight and relying on small deviations, some of which are unintentional and some of which are natural.

The traditional off-spinner, its top spinning form, the carrom ball, a slower, flatter ball, and the arm ball are Ashwin’s five primary variations. He has taken 163 wickets now in 189 matches in IPL.

Piyush Chawla

Piyush Chawla has also held the honor of participating in the IPL since it began. Recently, Chawla became the first bowler in Indian T20 history to collect 250 wickets. Piyush Chawla bowls an open action, which makes him better at bowling a googly than other leg spinners. Chawla bowls from the corner of the crease to make his wrong’un more potent because he isn’t particularly good at spinning the ball across the right-hand batsman.

Piyush Chawla, a member of India’s World Cup-winning team, has taken 162 wickets in 169 games so far in IPL.

He also has the most wickets in IPL death overs of any Indian player.

With 157 wickets in 150 matches, Bhuvneshwar Kumar leads the Indian pace bowling in the IPL.

Jasprit Bumrah

Jasprit Bumrah is a well-known Indian bowler who can produce on-spot Yorkers when needed. Bumrah is currently the face of the Indian pace. He is recognized for picking up world-class batsmen with his different bowling movements. Bumrah plays for Mumbai Indians in the IPL and is the only top bowler to stay with a single side.

He also captained CSK for seven matches during the 2022 season. Jadeja’s bowling technique is outstanding, and his fast arm makes him a superb fielder.

Jadeja has 135 wickets in 215 IPL appearances and has represented three different teams besides CSK.
