    Mitchell Johnson for his bowling spell 23/2 which included 17 dots of the 24 deliveries bowled has kept him on Top of the list of bowlers to bowl most number of dot balls. His matching spell came against Mumbai Indians where Harbhajan Singh and J Suchith almost took away the match from the Kings.

    On the 2nd place we have Morne Morkel, who bowled a matching spell in the first match of this season of IPL. In the 4 over’s he bowled, there were 15 dots and gave 18 runs by picking up 2 wickets against MI. He won the Man of the Match award for his performance.

    On 3rd place is New Zealand star Trent Boult. He gave 36 runs in 4 overs and also picked up 3 wickets and still managed 15 dot balls, meaning which he gave away 36 runs in 9 deliveries.

    The new entrants in the list are from yesterday’s match between RR and SRH, Dhawal Kulkarni and Ravi Bopara made it to the list. In all there are just 3 Indians in the Top list of bowlers which includes Sandeep Sharma, Dhawal Kulkarni and Anureet Singh.

    It good to see young pace bowling talents give some competition to best pace bowlers in the tournament. Who do you think might get above Mitchell Johnson in this list or will he remain on top. Share your views with us and stay updated with our constant updates on IPL.
