The Bowlers seem to get the upper hand as the tournament is playoff stage because of the high scoring nature of the Indian Premier League (IPL). One of them can probably be due to slowing or rather worsening conditions in the pitches at the end of the competition over two months.

The spinners also tend to be crucial to the situation, reiterating the argument about the slight slowness of the pitches towards the end of the match. Let us take a look into the likelihood that the five best spells in IPL playoffs over the years will be. Sub-par totals have successfully been defended by the teams on several occasions.

 Karn Sharma

To hurt a team most of the time, you can break your batting lineup at the very beginning of your innings. In the second qualifier for the IPL 2017 edition, Karn Sharma did that exactly. First of all, all of Karn's 4 wickets belonged to KKR’s top six batsmen. Secondly, for 31 runs, Kolkata lost five wickets in the 6.5 runs and three of these scalps had been taken by the leg spinner. For 107 runs in the all-important qualifier, he was instrumental in the Gambhir team. Sunil Narine was particularly notable for 12 runs, as the pinch-hitter gave KKR many speedy starts in the same season.

Ishant Sharma

Deccan Chargers targeted Kochi Tuskers Kerala on 27 April 2011. This was a conflict between two sides that; although they have several match-winners in their ranks, were labeled underdogs. KTK Mahela Jayawardene won the toss and first chose to bowl. 

Like RP Singh and Vinay Kumar, it turned out to be a smart home-side decision because the chargers were reduced to just 129. It was up to the bowling department of the team that brought their team to victory. Ishant Sharma ran through the Kochi side, disregarding the Jayawardene likes, Brad Hodge and Kedar Jadhav when he dismantled their fighters. 

Sharma finished his three rounds with impressive figures at 5/12 and had a significant hand in the 55-run victory of his side.

Lasith Malinga

Lasith Malinga is one of the biggest IPL players to date. He is also the highest wicket-taker in IPL history, these legendary players from Sri Lanka. Malinga is one of the top bowling events in the opening game of IPL’s 2011 season. For 13 races in MI jersey, he took five wickets and DD was 95 runs comparatively low. The 8 wickets won MI, and the man of the match was called Malinga. He was indeed the top most wicket-keeper with 28 scalps on his name in the IPL’s 2011 season.

Alzari Joseph

In the tournament against the team Sunrisers Hyderabad, Alzarri Joseph replaced injured Adam Milne. Six wickets have been collected in 3.4 overtakes; while only 12 runs have been granted as Mumbai Indians beat SRH for 40 runs. Joseph was an unknown person when he entered the tournament. He was placed in the Mumbai team when Milne was wounded. In this match, the West Indian made his IPL debut and was a debut. Thanks to Joseph, team Mumbai was able to get rid of its opponents; with 96 runs by a convenient margin (40 runs).
