The 17th edition of the IPL 2024 turned out to be a nightmare for the majority of the bowlers. The 200+ scores weren't uncommon, and some teams crossed scores of 220 or more consistently. For the first time in the history of the league, more than 7 instances of 240+ scores were registered in a single edition. The pitches were flat and not didn't have much to offer for the bowlers for the majority of the tournament.

However, the bowlers returned well in the last 20 matches with impressive performances. With the wickets slowing down, batting inevitably became a bit difficult. However, for the most part, the bowlers struggled to be in the game. Yet, a few bowlers did extremely well for their side and made a name for themselves. Most of them were wicket-taking bowlers and a few were economical. Not many managed to do both. 

Meanwhile, here are the top 10 best bowlers of the season:

Harshal Patel

Harshal Patel

Harshal Patel emerged as the leading wicket-taker of the 17th edition, getting his hands on the prestigious Purple Cap for a rare second time in the league's history. The experienced pacer claimed 24 wickets and averaged well under 20. The seamer was particularly well at the death, and controlled the economy single-handedly on many instances. Although Punjab Kings couldn't make it to the Playoffs, it was Harshal Patel who was the brightest shining star for them, justifying his pricey pick at the auction.

Trent Boult

Trent Boult

Known for picking wickets from the get-go, Trent Boult stood by his reputation in this season as well. The Kiwi pacer bowled exceptionally well in some games, and his ability to take early wickets was one of the main reasons Rajasthan Royals made it to the top four. Throughout the 17th edition, Boult claimed 16 wickets at an impressive economy of 8.30. His best of 3/22 also saw him Player of the Match.
