Sohail Tanvir One has to say that IPL is a tournament tilted towards batsmen, from flat pitches to shorter boundaries and powerplays and why not? it's devised for people to watch sixes flying as they dig into their dinner every evening but cricket always was and remains a game where bowlers can do more damage on their best days than batters. This brings us to couple of questions = who are the best bowlers in IPL and which bowler has got most wickets in a single series so far as we enter the sixth edition? following are your answers..
