The 25-year-old South African fast bowler Kagiso Rabada’s incredible record wicket-taking streak in the Indian Premier League (IPL) finally ended on Tuesday (27th October) evening. He is now holding the record of taking at least one wicket in most consecutive IPL matches, which he managed to maintain for 25 consecutive matches.

On Tuesday evening, Delhi Capitals (DC) were playing against SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) at Dubai International Cricket Stadium (Dubai) in the 47th match of the IPL 2020. During the first innings of the match, while SRH scored 219/2 (20 overs), Delhi Capitals pacer Kagiso Rabada was the most expensive bowler for his side as he had the bowling figures of 4-0-54-0.

After managing at least one wicket in 25 consecutive IPL matches, it was the first time when Rabada didn’t manage to open his wicket column in an IPL match. Before this match, Rabada last time managed the wicket-less bowling figures in the IPL on 2nd May 2017. Incidentally, it was the match against SRH at Delhi where he had the expensive bowling figures of 4-0-59-0.

Earlier this month, during the 23rd match of the IPL 2020, when Delhi Capitals were playing against Rajasthan Royals (RR) at Sharjah Cricket Stadium (Sharjah), Rabada created IPL history as he became the new record holder of most consecutive IPL innings with at least one wicket by surpassing the previous record-holder R Vinay Kumar, who managed to continue that feat for 19 consecutive times.

Around eight days later, Rabada put his name in another IPL bowling record as he became the fastest to complete 50 IPL wickets. While the previous record-holder Sunil Narine completed his 50 IPL wickets in 32 IPL matches, Rabada completed the same feat in only 27 IPL matches.
