IPL Most Wickets 2021: The Sportsrush present for you the list of highest wicket-takers in Indian Premier League 2021.
There is no going into a safe house regarding the fact that the T20 format can be the most toughest one for bowlers. Irrespective of the genre or skill, there are days when bowlers can find it hard to contain the opposition batsmen.
Going by the prevalent notion of “bowlers win trophies”, one can’t undermine the hard yards put it by bowlers principally in the long run.
As far as the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League is concerned, bowlers might not have outplayed the batsmen completely but they’ve surely ensured that batsmen work hard for their runs.
With a large part of the season having been played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, bowlers have dictated terms to a large extent. With the surface at the Chepauk assisting bowlers, there have been instances when fielding teams have defended below par totals as well.
As far as the highest wicket-taker in IPL 2021, is concerned, Royal Challengers Bangalore pacer Harshal Patel has surprised one and all by overdoing all his counterparts till now. Having picked a maiden IPL five-wicket haul in the season opener against defending champions Mumbai Indians, Patel has continued to be among the wickets.
Top class, Harshal Patel! 🙌🙌🙌
Patel is cleaning up the tail!😎

Much like Patel, Delhi Capitals’ Avesh Khan is another lesser expected name to feature in the list. Being given opportunities ahead of the likes of Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav, this Madhya Pradesh bowler has justified his selection with regular breakthroughs.
