First Published 5, Oct 2020, 4:28 PM
The 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is witnessing new energy and enthusiasm among the players. Here is the list of bowlers who have been quite economical in the season as of now.
Despite the fact that Sheikh Zayed Stadium and Dubai International Cricket stadium assist the bowlers, only a handful have grabbed the opportunity and have emerged as the most economical bowlers.
Let’s look at some of the bowlers who have given a tough time to the batsmen so far.
The left-arm slow orthodox from Delhi Capitals (DC) is first on the list. His economy rate is 4.60, less than a run per ball, with his best being 1/14.
The youngster is a right-arm off-break bowler and plays for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). He is second on the list, with 4.72 as his economy rate, and has the best figures of 1/12.
The 22-year-old stalwart from Afghanistan is quite deceptive. The leg-spinner gets the breakthroughs by bowling googlies in between. This season he has an economy of 5.20, along with a fine average of 20.80, while his best figures read 3/14.
Though he hasn’t played many matches for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) this season, he has still left his mark in the only match he has played so far. Currently, fourth on the list, he has an economy of 5.75. However, he has not claimed a wicket so far.
The England all-rounder often marks his presence in Rajasthan Royals (RR), either with the bat or the ball. He is currently the fifth most economical bowler with an economy of 6.75, while his best figures are 2/18.
