IPL Top Bowler odds: Mitchell Starc, Mohammed Siraj and Jasprit Bumrah amongst favourites

The 2024 Indian Premier League season is here, with 10 teams set to battle it out for supremacy in the world's most iconic franchise cricket competition.

Among the most prestigious accolades awarded at the end of an IPL campaign is the Purple Cap, which goes to the competition's leading wicket-taker.

Mohammed Shami of Gujarat Titans won the Purple Cap in 2023 thanks to a haul of 28 wickets in 17 matches and there are a host of players in contention this season from Mitchell Starc to Yuzvendra Chahal.

IPL Top Bowler odds

(Odds will display when the market is available)

Mitchell Starc

At the head of the top bowler betting for the 2024 IPL season is the man who became the most expensive player in the competition's history in December's auction.

Australian ace Mitchell Starc was snapped up by Kolkata Knight Riders for 24.75 crore - around £2.3 million - at the end of last year and will be desperate to justify the price tag.

Rashid Khan

Few bowlers are as adaptable and versatile as Afghanistan all-rounder Rashid Khan, who will again be looking to make an impact for Gujarat Titans.

Injury could limit his involvement this year but Khan took 27 wickets in the IPL last season - only Shami took more - and he will again be a danger.

Jasprit Bumrah

A dangerous and adept bowler at the death, Jasprit Bumrah is one of the best bowlers across all formats and he is a major contender for the Purple Cap this year.

Bumrah did not feature in the IPL last season as a result of a back injury but he picked up 20 wickets for India in the World Cup last year and will be looking to come back with a bang.

Mohammed Siraj

If Royal Challengers Bangalore are to go the distance in the IPL this season, paceman Mohammed Siraj is sure to play a key role.

He picked up 19 wickets in 14 matches for Bangalore last season with best figures of 4-21 and he can make an impact in all formats.

Matheesha Pathirana

Known for his intriguing bowling style, likened to that of Lastih Malinga, Matthesha Pathirana is a key player for Chennai Super Kings and will also be vying for the Purple Cap this season.

He loves a yorker and was reliable last term, picking up 19 wickets in 12 matches.

Ravi Bishnoi

A tricky opponent in Twenty20 internationals, Ravi Bishnoi knows how to bamboozle the very best with his effective wrist spin.

He claimed 16 wickets in 15 matches last season for Lucknow Super Giants and he is a decent outside contender for the Purple Cap.

Trent Boult

It was 2020 when New Zealander Trent Boult impressed the most in the IPL, taking 25 wickets in 15 matches for former side Mumbai Indians.

He now plies his trade for Rajasthan Royals and will be looking to improve on his haul of 13 scalps in 2023.

Yuzvendra Chahal

Among the most talented and intelligent spin bowlers on the planet, Yuzvendra Chahal should never be underestimated.

He has taken 48 wickets in the last two IPL seasons, having won the Purple Cap in 2022 after a devastating campaign with Rajasthan Royals.
