Veteran all-rounder Dwayne Bravo on Thursday became the highest wicket-taker during Chennai Super Kings IPL 2022 match against Lucknow Super Giants.
He was tied with Sri Lankan legend Malinga at the top spot with 170 wickets and with this match, he went past it. Dwayne Bravo would have made this record a lot earlier if Moeen Ali had not dropped a simple catch off Quinton de Kock.
He successfully took 171 wickets in the 153 IPL matches he has played so far. Malinga on the other hand has taken 170 wickets in 122 matches for the Mumbai Indians.
Interestingly, Bravo’s first tryst with the IPL was when he replaced an injured Malinga in the inaugural edition of the league in 2008.
Bravo and Malinga are followed by Amit Mishra (166), Piyush Chawla and Harbhajan Singh in IPL’s all-time leading wicket-takers list.
