Best IPL Bowlers: The ultimate goal of the fielding side in a game of cricket is to limit the total amount of runs scored by the batting side, and the bowlers’ actions is the most critical in attaining this goal. The most common way to do this is to rapidly remove the batting side by taking all 10 of the opposing wickets.
