Bowlers of IPL 2018 have been setting fire to the playing field and garnering a lot of attention and appreciation. Let us have a look at the top best bowlers of IPL till now.
Lungi Ngidi (Chennai Super Kings)
The 22-year old is a right-arm fast bowler who plays for the Africa National Cricket team. He was bought at the IPL auction for 50 Lakh rupees. He had one of his best performances against KXIP. He initially ousted Chris Gayle and KL Rahul, two strong players who would have been capable to bag a huge win for KXIP, which was needed for them in order to qualify for playoffs. Once the big names were down, he aimed for Andrew Tye and R Ashwin in order to thwart their plan of winning the game. He played 16 dot balls in this game.
Mayank Markande (Mumbai Indians)
Markande has been rising and has a lot of potentials. He might not be the best, but he is certainly improving. His performance this time was certainly commendable. He has an economy rate of 7.52 and bagged 10 wickets in 7 games. He has proven himself to be one of the best spinners for MI. He has a personal record of 12 wickets for his domestic T20 matches. Considering his age and experience, the 20-year-old leg spinner sure has performed very well and will shortly be making his way to the top.
Ankit Rajpoot (Kings XI Punjab)
Rajpoot was signed for 3 crore rupees for KXIP. One of his best performances is undoubtedly against SRH. He managed a great 5 wickets in just 14 runs in 4 overs, wow! Non-surprisingly, he took the Man of the Match title. He set a record for the first five-wicket haul of this season. Manish Pandey, Dhawan and Williamson all were beaten by his tactics and great bowling. He delivered 17 dot balls out of a total of his 24 deliveries. The people SRH was based on collapsed in front of him. Certainly, he deserves to be a part of this list.
Rashid Khan (Sunrisers Hyderabad)
Khan is the star for this season and only at 19, he is easily one of the best players SRH could have asked for. He has won the Player of the Match three time for SRH and has the record for the best bowling performance by an Afghan cricketer. He has been bought for a massive 9 crore at the IPL. He was also declared the stand-in captain for the Afghanistan 2018 cricket World Cup qualifier.
