He played 18 matches for the Men in Yellow and delivered in almost every game for CSK while bowling 63 overs at an average of 15.53.

Lasith Malinga – 28 wickets | IPL 2011

Lasith Malinga has been the best performer of the IPL over the years and this list is incomplete without him. He holds the fourth position having picked 28 wickets in the IPL 2011 season in 16 matches at an average of 13.39 at an incredible economy of 5.95. Malinga played for Mumbai Indians only in IPL since 2009 when he made his IPL debut. The last ball of his IPL career turned out to be a heart-clinching thriller in the final of IPL 2019 where he dismissed Shardul Thakur as MI won their fourth trophy by just 1 run.

James Faulkner – 28 wickets | IPL 2013

James Faulkner of Australia is in fifth place on this list as he dominated the proceedings during the 2013 edition of the Indian Premier League. He played for Rajasthan Royals and accounted for 28 scalps in 16 matches at a brilliant average of 15.25 and an economy of 6.75. He didn’t win the purple cap with Bravo picking 32 wickets but Faulkner stood second thanks to an exceptional bowling show in the entire season.

Mohammad Shami – 28 wickets | IPL 2023

Mohammad Shami was the leading wicket-taker in IPL 2023. In 16 matches, he took 28 wickets at an average of 17.60 and a strike rate of 13.28. The Gujarat Titans pacer played a key role in his side reaching the final, where they eventually lost to Chennai Super Kings. 

Jasprit Bumrah – 27 wickets | IPL 2020

Jasprit Bumrah of Mumbai Indians was at the top of his bowling mark in the entire IPL 2020 season.

Bumrah picked up a whopping 27 wickets in 15 matches of the season played in the UAE at an average of 14.96 and an economy of 6.73.

Yuzvendra Chahal – 27 wickets | IPL 2022

Yuzvendra Chahal was at his best in IPL 2022 as he picked up 27 wickets helping Rajasthan Royals make it to the final of the season.
