Lasith Malinga and Amit Mishra are only two bowlers so far to have taken 100 or more wickets in IPL. Piyush Chawla is closest to reach 100 wickets as he his team is yet to play 4 more matches in the 7th season of IPL and if they make it to the Top 4 then might a be a couple of more matches. Hence Piyush Chawla would like to grab this opportunity and get 100 wickets to his name.
