The Ipl 2019 is just a week away from here and then we have big games coming up with the opening game of Chennai Super Kings against their arch-rivals Royal Challengers Bangalore will be a massive game for fans to look out the IPL from its first day will see the fight for Purple Cap and it goes till the final match day.
Last year Andrew Tye was the Purple Cap holder as he picked 24 wickets at an average of 18.67 where thrice he took 4 wickets in a match. Out of 11 seasons 6 times a foreign player has managed to wear the Purple Cap on his head and 5 times Indian players have got the chance out of which only Bhuvneshwar Kumar has defended his Purple Cap in 2016 and 2017 taking 23 and 26 wickets in respective seasons.
There have been excellent spells which have turned the match from the batting side and went in the favor of bowlers. Let us look at the Top 5 IPL bowlers to watch out for this season.
5) Jofra Archer
Archer’s heroics at the BBL 17-18 ensured that he got noticed at the 2018 IPL auctions and was eventually snapped up by the Rajasthan Royals, and he did not disappoint the team management as he played only 10 matches and took 15 scalps in that. He is a silky fast bowler with a high action capable of speeds.
In the recently concluded Big Bash League he was the highest wicket-taker for Hobart Hurricanes taking 18 wickets. His deathly yorkers can tangle around the batsman’s wicket. He will be the key in the Royals bowling unit to bowl important overs and get break-throughs when required.
