Top 10: Bowlers with Most Wickets at a Single Venue in IPL

Just like batters have a favourite hunting ground where they can score even while sleeping, the same goes for bowlers, who, when given a chance, willingly take the pitch wherever they go. One is the familiarity of the surface, and the other is their own skill set, which brings them success.

So here in this piece, we will list the top 10 bowlers with the most IPL wickets at a single venue.
