Most Expensive Bowler IPL 2024

A format so heavily tilted in favour of the batters, it is not an easy job to be a bowler in IPL. The idea behind introducing T20 cricket was to bring entertainment for the fans. The format is fast, fun and exciting, challenging for the players.


Be it batting, bowling or fielding, the teams need to bring out their best game, and the scope to err on the cricket field is close to negligible. However, for a bowler, the proposition becomes really difficult in terms of execution. A bit off the mark, the batters show no mercy. There are times when good deliveries go to the fence and sail over it too.


Once a batter switches on his power game, there is no hiding for a bowler in this format, unless he manages to pull some trick off his hat. There are bowlers who have worked on their skills and been really successful for their franchises in terms of their wicket-taking ability, strike-rate or economy.


The T20 format is such that the best of bowlers sometimes concede runs, putting question mark on their ability to execute when they were most expected to. Basil Thampi of Sunrisers Hyderabad bowled the most expensive over in IPL history, when he conceded 70 runs from his four overs without taking a wicket. This was in a 2018 IPL match against Royal Challengers Bangalore, and his economy was 17.5.


In the 2024 edition of IPL, Kwena Maphaka after a successful campaign in the 2024 U-19 World Cup for South Africa, got the real taste of high level cricket when he conceded 66 runs for no wickets in his four overs. It was his debut IPL match, playing for Mumbai Indians against Sunrisers Hyderabad.


Maphaka's bowling figures made him the fourth bowler in IPL history to concede 66 runs in 4 overs after Ishant Sharma, Mujeeb-ur-Rahman and Arshdeep Singh.


Explore the challenges of bowling in the IPL with Crickit's player stats for the most expensive bowler in IPL history! Witness the battles faced by bowlers who have encountered tough days on the field. Crickit sheds light on the pressures of T20 cricket, showcasing the resilience and determination required by bowlers to bounce back in the shortest format of the game.
