IPL is a tournament that has revolutionized cricket over the years. The way the game is approached has undergone a sea-change since the advent of cricket. IPL has given the freedom to youngsters to go out there and express themselves without fear. Therefore, it has resulted in a more dynamic style of playing and brought in an immense amount of entertainment.
Without a doubt, the T20 format is a batsman’s fiefdom. The boundaries have become shorter, the bats have become thicker and with the powerplay rules in force, batsmen can dominate the game without worrying. The bowlers are taken to the cleaners and unless the pitch is treacherous, bowlers are just looking to contain batsmen from going ballistic.
IPL being a batter’s dream, there have however been instances when bowlers have run riot on the pitch. Numerous instances of teams bundling out for a paltry total resulted in low-scoring games. RCB bundling out for 49 against KKR in 2017 to some sensational swing bowling is still spoken about. We look at teams that have gotten their opponents all-out most times in IPL.
1. Mumbai Indians
Mumbai Indians have been a top-performing team over the last decade. Their trophy-winning spree began in 2013 and has not seemed to stop. They have managed to bowl out their opponents 29 times and are leaders by a substantial distance with the second position much lower down. Their bowling line-up over the years has comprised the likes of Lasith Malinga and Bumbrah who have been pivotal in achieving this foot.
2. Chennai Super Kings
CSK have been close on the heels of Mumbai Indians in terms of trophy count and that is predominantly been because of their all-round performance. The likes of Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, and Deepak Chahar have helped them get the opponents 21 times in total.
3. Royal Challengers Bangalore
A third of the list is RCB. They are not much far away from Mumbai Indians with getting their opposition team all-out 19 times in total. They have boasted of some stellar team compositions with the likes of Dale Steyn and Mitchell Starc. However, their trophy cabinet is still empty.
