Bangalore vs Kolkata: Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will face Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in IPL 2021 today. For RCB’s medium pacer Harshal Patel, this season of IPL has been no less than a golden dream. Harshal has so far taken 30 wickets in this season. At the same time, he is standing on the threshold of making a huge record in the IPL. If Harshal takes three more wickets in today’s match, then he will become the highest wicket-taker bowler in a season of IPL.
Currently, this record in IPL is registered in the name of Chennai Super Kings all-rounder Dwayne Bravo. Bravo did this feat in the 2013 IPL season by taking 32 wickets. In today’s match, Harshal will have a chance to make this record his name. Let us tell you that Harshal Patel, who plays domestic cricket for Haryana, is also the purple cap holder with the most wickets in this season. At present, he has seven wickets more than Delhi Capitals fast bowler Avesh Khan (23 wickets), who is second in this list.
This year Harshal has made these records in his name
For Harshal this year this tournament has proved to be very good so far. He has already become the highest wicket-taker Indian bowler in an IPL season. Earlier this record was registered in the name of Mumbai Indians’ star fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah. Bumrah did this feat by taking 27 wickets in the last season of IPL played in UAE itself. Along with this, Harshal Patel has also held the record for most wickets in a season by an uncapped player. Along with this, he has done a hat-trick and once took five wickets in this tournament.
