Imran Tahir of Chennai Super Kings continues to be at the top amongst the top wicket-takers of IPL 2019. He has 4 wickets from 2 matches. There are 2 more bowlers with the same number of wickets. But what keeps Tahir at the top is the economy rate of 4.83.

Dwayne Bravo is his teammate with 4 wickets who lies below Tahir on the table. Andre Russell, after his 2 wickets against Kings XI Punjab, also has 4 wickets in his tally now.

Russell has proved to be the most valuable player of the tournament so far. He has scored 97 runs in 2 innings along with 4 wickets. He has played two thunderous innings with the bat that have proved to be the match-winning ones for Kolkata Knight Riders.

However, the CSK bowlers are ruling the chart for the most number of wickets. 3 out of top four wicket-takers belong to the defending champions.
