Bengaluru, May 16: Mumbai Indians pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah finished with the best bowling figures of the ongoing IPL 2022 in the match against Kolkata Knight Riders on Monday (May 9) at the Dr DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai.
Bumrah's bowling display of 5 for 10 in his 4 overs against KKR took him above Royal Challengers Bangalore spinner Wanindu Hasaranga, who had ended with figures of 5 for 18 in 4 overs just a day ago at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai in a match against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Five-wicket hauls are a big feat in any format of the game, but to take them in the shortest format is something special and this season, the IPL has witnessed 4 five-wicket hauls.
Bumrah, Hasaranga, Yuzvendra Chahal and Umran Malik are the bowlers that have taken 5 wickets in a single match. In fact, there have been only 28 five-wicket hauls in IPL history.
Meanwhile, the cash-rich league has also seen 18 four-wicket hauls till match 56 of IPL 2022. The likes of Kagiso Rabada and Kuldeep Yadav have taken 4 wickets in two matches each, while uncapped players like Mohsin Khan and Kuldeep Sen feature at least once in the list.
