IPL 2020 has not been just about explosive batting, but also about smart bowling and fielding that have paved the way for exciting cricket. There have been few top bowling performances despite the bat dominating the proceedings so far. Cricwizz takes a look at a few top bowlers so far in IPL 2020 in September.
The South African pacer has been one of the most outstanding bowlers in IPL 2020 so far. Rabada has been consistent with his yorkers, making it difficult for batsmen to score off him. Rabada is not only the joint highest wicket-taker in IPL 2020 but also the most economical bowler. He has taken 7 wickets @ 10.71, with best bowling figures of 3/26. He has an economy rate of 6.25.
The Kings XI Punjab bowler has looked refresh thanks to the break due to the lockdown. He has been a revelation with his fiery bowling. He has exhibited pace, unplayable bouncers, and Yorkers to earn the tag of joint most successful bowler in IPL 2020 so far. However, the team’s result has not been favourable despite Shami’s breathtaking performance in IPL 2020 so far. He has taken 7 wickets @ 11.71 with an economy rate of 7.45 in 3 innings so far.
The RCB leg-spinner has been brilliant so far this season, although the pitch conditions have not been conducive to spin bowling. He has figures of 3/18, 1/25, 1/48 in 3 innings so far in September. He has been brilliant with his ball control, line and length bowling, and clever changes of pace, putting the pitch conditions out of question. He has been in excellent form, and that bodes well for RCB in the tournament.
