The ninth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is just a couple of matches away from its final and we are all looking at numbers to see who has performed well or hasn’t performed well in the tournament. T20 was initially considered as a batsman’s format but, over the years, the role of bowlers has evolved and now a strong bowling-unit is considered to be a team’s biggest strength. IPL 2016 has been a good season for the bowlers and there’s a very tight competition as far as the list of leading wicket takers in concerned. While the top 2 positions are held by RCB bowlers, GL and SRH’s Dhawal Kulkarni and Bhuvneshwar Kumar are at number 3 and 4 spots respectively. Here is the list of Highest Wicket Bowler in IPL 2016:
