Today we discuss about the best 5 bowlers in IPL 2020. The 13th Edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) has started from September 19th, 2020, Saturday and will be telecasted live on the designated sports channels. The first premium event to be taking place in the world of cricket amidst the Pandemic, the staging of the IPL would not only act as a major financial boost for the BCCI which is already starved off the money from ticket sales but will also bring happiness to countless cricket lovers across the globe who would journey several miles every year to watch their favorite stars in action.
Viewership ratings are expected to be at an all-time high. Following is a list of the best and the most exciting bowlers who would be plying their trade in the tournament. The list is subjective and is based on current form and past performance in the IPL.
Jasprit Bumrah (Mumbai Indians)
There have been very few bowlers who have had as much impact on a team’s fortunes as Jasprit Bumrah has had for any team he has represented, be it India or Mumbai Indians. A unique action ably supported by upright seam position, perfect line and length, the ball swinging both ways, a toe crushing yorker, and deceptive pace change- there is not one quality that Bumrah lacks as a bowler.

For the last two years, he has been an invaluable asset for any team that he has played for, almost appearing unplayable at times. A consistent performer in all forms of the game, if Bumrah fires, something that more often than not he does, there is no stopping Mumbai Indians from claiming glory. Among the best 5 bowlers in IPL 2020.
Kagiso Rabada (Delhi Capitals)
A raw talent with sheer pace and tremendous accuracy, Rabada is undoubtedly among the highest quality fast bowlers you can imagine to have in your side. He hits the deck hard and can extract pace and bounce even from the most flaccid pitches, his unique physicality enabling him to do that.
He was the highest wicket-taker for his franchise the previous season, ripping through batting attacks and causing uncertainty in the mind of the opposition batsman. A bowler who has performed with equal aplomb in all formats of the game for the last 3 years, Rabada’s workload should be managed efficiently so that he can feature in almost all the matches that Delhi Capitals play. Among the best 5 bowlers in IPL 2020.
Pat Cummins (Kolkata Knight Riders)
The best test match bowler in the world today, Pat Cummins is an exceptional talent. With the heart of a true fighter, he runs in quick, bowls fast, swings the ball a mile, and can pick up wickets at any juncture in the match. Moreover, he is an extremely handy batsman down the order who knows how to use the long handle to the best effect to cause maximum damage. He would be eager to show his skills for the KKR outfit.
One worry for Cummins is that he is a bit injury-prone although he has worked on it vigorously in the last couple of years featuring for Australia continuously for all formats in the last 2-3 years. Among the best 5 bowlers in IPL 2020.
Rashid Khan (Sunrisers Hyderabad)
If there’s one bowler whom the batsmen would want to bat out the overs of, it’s this leggie from Afghanistan. Striking fear in the minds of opposition with his guile and accurate line and length, Rashid Khan is perfectly suited to the shorter formats of the game where he not only picks up wickets in chunks but also restricts the flow of runs quite effectively. The Sunrisers would be using him judiciously. Among the best 5 bowlers in IPL 2020.
Sunil Narine (Kolkata Knight Riders)
There have been few players who have been as instrumental to a franchise as Sunil Narine has been for the KKR. When he first arrived at the scene, he was just a young bowler with a lot of promise. Over the years he has slowly become a myth with one of the highest wicket tallies in the tournament and an enviable economy rate of around 6.0.
Moreover, his mystery might have diminished with time, but he is still as effective with those subtle variations. He has redefined his stint for the KKR outfit in the role of an opening batsman, a gamble by the ex-captain of the franchise Gautam Gambhir which has worked out well. Among the best 5 bowlers in IPL 2020.
