Lasith Malinga's IPL career has seen him play for the Mumbai Indians since Day 1 and he has always remained a consistent threat. Injuries have slowed him down in recent years but his ability to bowl yorkers on demand while also being able to mix up his pace with great effect means Mumbai continue to rely on him.

Amit Mishra’s success came from him sticking to the basics; he preferred to actually toss the ball up and look for spin instead of going flat and hard. (M – 147, W – 157, BBM – 5/17)

Piyush Chawla spent the first three seasons of the IPL with Kings XI Punjab where he was a consistent performer but never tasted much success otherwise. His move to Kolkata Knight Riders in 2011 changed that; Chawla would be a key part of the sides that lifted the trophy in 2012 and 2014. (M – 157, W – 150, BBM – 4/17)

Dwayne Bravo's ability to bowl well at any time of the match – and especially so at the death – have seen him become a fan favourite of the Yellow Army. The fact that he can take wickets almost at will certainly doesn’t hurt. (M – 134, W – 147, BBM – 4/22)

Comfortable with both new ball and old while also possessing both an impressive change of pace and an eye for the yorker, it is no wonder Bhuvneshwar Kumar features on this list. (M – 117, W – 133, BBM – 5/19)

Ravichandran Ashwin's ability to bowl in consistent lines as well as an eagerness to never stop searching for innovations – he has a doosra, a carrom ball and even the odd leg-spinner in his arsenal – saw him become an effective operator. (M – 139, W – 125, BBM – 4/34)

Umesh Yadav has never the man around whom the bowling attack revolved for any of his sides but the speedster has chipped in with wickets regularly and has won the IPL twice with KKR. (M – 119, W – 119, BBM – 4/24)

Ravindra Jadeja’s biggest strength is his consistency; he is able to bowl at a consistent line and length and gets through his overs quickly, meaning batsmen never realty settle into a rhythm with him. (M – 170, W – 108, BBM – 5/16)
