Most Sixes

  1. MS Dhoni 23
  2. Shane Watson 20
  3. Faf du Plessis 15
  4. Suresh Raina 9
  5. Ambati Rayudu 7

This helps us when betting on cricket by looking at who the bigger hitters are and when they come to the crease.

Looking at these stats we would be looking to bet on a high run rate when a player like Jadeja is betting. He is further down the order so we should get more favourable odds on his performances at that time. This is when compared to someone like MS Dhoni where everyone expects him to be a big hitter.

Bowling Stats

2019 IPL Bowling Stats
Market Total Average per game
Wickets 106 6.24
Maidens 5 0.29
Dot Balls 789 46.41
Runs Conceded 2410 141.76
4 Wickets 2 0.12

The bowling stats are a little less favourable with more runs conceded overall than scored. The average score against the Super Kings was 142/6. They did manage 5 maiden overs across the tournament with is a respectable score.

Most Wickets (Tournament) 

  1. Imran Tahir – 26
  2. Deepak Chahar – 22
  3. Harbhajan Singh – 16
  4. Ravindra Jadeja – 15
  5. Dwayne Bravo – 11

These figures are great compared to others when you consider how well spread the wickets are. The Super Kings have 2 players in the top three wicket-takers for the tournament with Tahir and Chaher both making the top 10.

They are spilt by Kagiso Rabada who took 25 wickets but in 15 overs less giving him a better rate per wicket and a smaller average.

Best economy figures*

  1. Ravindra Jadeja – 6.35
  2. Imran Tahir – 6.69
  3. Harbhajan Singh 7.09
  4. Deepak Chahar 7.47
  5. Dwayne Bravo 8.01

What a performance from Jadeja to keep to a 6.35 economy rate while playing 17 matches and bowling 54 overs. If we just look at players who bowled at least 10 overs then he was second in the standings behind Rashin Kahn who had a rate 0.07 better than Jadeja.

*Minimum 10 overs

Most Dot Balls

  1. Deepak Chahar – 190
  2. Imran Tahir – 149
  3. Ravindra Jadeja – 128
  4. Harbhajan Singh – 117
  5. Dwayne Bravo – 74

Deepak Chahar was the leading bowler for dot balls in the 2019 IPL season. He was over 20 clear of second-place Jasprit Bumrah, who finished on 169. Playing all 17 IPL matches helped get him to the top of the total dots.

Tahir looks a respectable 5th with 149 but over 17 matches that isn’t as high as it seems. When you compare these to, for example, the Royal Challengers Bangalore stats you ill see that Navdeep Saini had only 8 dot balls less yet played 5 matches less!
