IPL Flashback: Best Bowling in an Innings in IPL history

The Indian Premier League is now 12 years old but the best figures in an innings ever recorded stand from the first season. Sohail Tanvir, playing for Rajasthan Royals, bagged 6 wickets for 14 runs in 4 overs. The performance came against Chennai Super Kings in Jaipur. The record has stood for long and it will take a special effort from someone to better that. Let’s have a look at the Best Bowling in an Innings in IPL history.

Adam Zampa is the only other bowler who has taken 6 wickets in an innings. The Australian leg-spinner achieved the feat in 2016 while representing Rising Pune Supergiant as he took 19/6 against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

There are 17 other bowlers who have taken a five-wicket haul in an IPL inning. Anil Kumble has the best figures among bowlers with 5 wickets. India’s legendary spinner bagged figures of 5/5 against Rajasthan Royals while playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2009.
