IPL 7: Top 10 leading wicket-takers – Indians lead the way


  • Indian bowlers have had a very good record in the current Indian Premier League season. Until last year it was seen that likes of Sunil Narine, Morne Morkel, Lasith Malinga, Dwayne Bravo and Dale Steyn used to lead the top wicket takers list. But this year it is seen that Indian bowlers have given a good competition to the overseas bowlers. Indian spinners and pacers have been in good touch this season. Even the likes of Sandeep Sharma, Lakshmipathy Balaji who are trying to make their way in the Indian team have given a wake up call to other Indian pacers.

    Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who has already made his mark in the longer formats of the game has also proved that he is a great bowler in the shortest format of the game as well.
