- Trent Boult
He is one of the competent death-over bowlers in the tournament who stood as the third highest wicket-taker in the previous IPL edition. He is one of the crucial pacers for New Zealand with world-class potential. His variant style of pace-bowling and ability to pick quick wickets made him the first choice of Delhi Capitals when they needed to choose a death-over bowler. He played for Delhi Daredevils in the previous season. He finished his previous IPL season with 18 wickets under his belt.
- Rashid Khan
He played for Sunrisers Hyderabad in his first IPL season and bagged 17 wickets. He is 18 years old at that time and stood as the best T20I bowler in the ICC rankings as well. He stood second in the race of Purple Cap with 21 wickets just three wickets away from Andrew Tye who won the Purple Cap in 2018. He is one of the crucial bowlers for SRH which entered the IPL finale in 2018. He was trolled as a one-time wonder by many, but he is keeping on his spectacular style to stand as one of the best world-class spinners.
- Jasprit Bumrah
He is one of the consistent performers for Mumbai Indians and might play for only first half of the season due to world cup schedule this year. He is known as the man with X-factor who can bag the matches even at critical moments with his elegant Yorkers. He is one of the leading pace bowlers for India in all the formats of cricket since a couple of years and has an impressive IPL record as well. He finished the previous season of IPL with a fair figure of 17 wickets.
