IPL | LIST OF 5-WICKET HAULS | FANFIGHT

IPL | LIST OF 5-WICKET HAULS | FANFIGHT

The Indian Premier League is not only known for its grandeur but also for the quality of cricket it herds. A hundred or a 5-for isn’t a common landmark but when it does occur it requires a really special effort. How rare is a 5-wicket haul in the IPL? Well, a total of 644 games have been played since its introduction and only 18 times has a bowler managed to pick 5 wickets or more. We glance at the list of 5-wicket hauls in the IPL.

Just to let you know how rarely a bowler picks a 5-for, here’s a stat. Only James Faulkner and Jaydev Unadkat have picked a 5-for more than once. Both the left-arm pacers have done it twice. How many times has a spinner taken 5 wickets in an innings? This has happened 6 times.

Adam Zampa and Sohail Tanvir have figures of 6/19 and 6/14 respectively. The two 6-fors in the IPL.

Anil Kumble’s 5/5 is by far the most miserly 5-wicket haul in an IPL game. Kumble absolutely demolished the Rajasthan Royals.
