5. Mohammed Siraj

Mohammed Siraj has consistently performed well for India in all formats. He played in 18 Test matches, taking 47 wickets at an average of 31.29 in those games. In 24 ODI matches, the 29-year-old has taken 43 wickets for an economy of 4.78.

Siraj performed admirably in the lucrative T20 competition as well, taking 59 wickets in 65 IPL games for an 8-point 78 economy. The top pacer, however, had a terrible season in 2022, managing only nine wickets in 15 games with a 10-point 08 economy.

The Hyderabad-born cricketer has played eight ODIs so far this year and has taken 19 wickets at an economy rate of 4.61. Siraj has been in excellent form of late, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if he proves himself in the upcoming T20 extravaganza. So he might be a contender for the Purple Cap in the IPL in 2023.

4. Yuzvendra Chahal

A well-known person on the global stage is Yuzvendra Chahal. In 72 ODI appearances, he has taken 121 wickets for 121 runs at an economy of 5.26. Regarding the shortest format, the 32-year-old has 91 kills in 75 games at an 8-point 13 economy.

Chahal has been a strike force with the ball in the middle stages of innings and has been quite impressive in the lucrative T20 tournament. The Indian leg-spinner, who has played in 131 IPL games, has 166 wickets to his credit at an economy rate of 7.61.

The 2022 season of the cash-rich league was when Chahal was at his best. The Haryana-born player amassed 27 wickets for Rajasthan Royals in 17 games by tearing through batting lineups for fun. His astounding total of wickets was the highest by a bowler all season. The talented spinner hopes to build on his success from the previous season and win the Purple Cap in the IPL 2023.

3. Mohammed Shami

One of the best pacers Indian cricket has ever produced is Mohammed Shami. His 225 wickets at an average of 27.48 came from 63 Test appearances. The 32-year-old has taken 162 victims in 90 games of the 50-over format for an economy of 5 points sixty.

Shami has consistently demonstrated his bowling prowess as one of the IPL’s more seasoned performers. The 32-year-old has played in 93 games in the prestigious tournament and has taken 99 wickets at an economy rate of 8.52.

Shami excelled with the ball in the previous T20 carnival, taking 20 wickets in 16 games for an economy of 8.00. His bowling performances were crucial in Gujarat Titans winning the IPL. In the upcoming season of the lucrative league, the Amroha native hopes to continue Gujarat’s successful run.

2. Trent Boult

In terms of size, Trent Boult was a giant in the game of cricket. With his swing, he has destroyed batting lineups and firmly established his dominance on the cricket field. The 33-year-old played in 78 Test matches and recorded 317 wickets at an average of 27.49. In 55 matches for the T20Is, he has claimed 74 victims at an economy of 7.86.

With 16 wickets in as many games for Rajasthan Royals and an economy rate of 7.94, Boult displayed some of the best bowling in the world in the previous edition of the T20 extravaganza. The New Zealand pacer would be eager to deliver another bowling exhibition in the 16th IPL season.
