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.
