Jasprit Bumrah reaches a remarkable milestone for Mumbai Indians in IPL 2024

Jasprit Bumrah

Jasprit Bumrah, the fiery pacer from Mumbai Indians, etched his name in the annals of IPL history by claiming 150 wickets in the tournament. His journey to this milestone has been nothing short of remarkable. During the IPL 2024 group clash between MI and DC at Wankhede Stadium, Bumrah achieved this significant feat in his 125th IPL match. His prowess as one of the premier fast bowlers in the world was on full display.

Bumrah now stands as the second-highest wicket-taker for the Mumbai Indians franchise, trailing only behind the legendary Lasith Malinga, who boasts an impressive tally of 195 wickets. The former Mumbai Indians player achieved this feat in just 105 games, while the crafty leg-spinner of Rajasthan Royals, Yuzvendra Chahal, reached it in 118 appearances. Bumrah’s consistency and ability to deliver under pressure have made him a force to be reckoned with.

Jasprit Bumrah takes his 150th Wicket

In the match against DC, Bumrah dismissed Abhishek Porel in the 16th over of the second innings. A mistimed shot by Porel off a full toss from Bumrah resulted in a simple catch for Tim David at long-on. With this wicket, Bumrah joined an elite club of bowlers who have left an indelible mark on the IPL.

Bumrah’s IPL journey began in 2013, and he made an unforgettable debut by claiming the prized scalp of Virat Kohli. Since then, he has been a consistent performer in every IPL season, earning accolades and securing a permanent spot in the national side. His standout season came in 2020, where he scalped 27 wickets from 15 fixtures. Remarkably, Bumrah has maintained an impressive economy rate since 2016, consistently conceding runs at less than eight runs per over.

Bumrah’s 150-wicket haul places him at the tenth position in the list of all-time IPL wicket-takers. He shares this spot with former Mumbai Indians spinner Harbhajan Singh, who claimed 160 wickets in 163 matches. Bumrah’s impact extends beyond the IPL; he has also left his mark in the now-defunct Champions League T20, where he captured three wickets.
