#4. Sunil Narine (21 Wickets)
Another spinner takes the fourth spot on this list of the top 5 Highest Wicket takers against MI in IPL matches, and it’s Sunil Narine. The West Indian has played for Kolkata Knight Riders throughout his IPL career and first made his name as an almost-unplayable mystery spinner.
Although he has had some trouble with his action, Narine has pretty much reinvented himself as a useful pinch-hitter up the order, regularly opening the batting for KKR in recent seasons. Back when he was bowling regularly, Narine picked up 21 wickets in 16 innings against Mumbai and will be hoping to return to the bowling crease more regularly in 2020.

Although he has since moved on to Kings XI Punjab and isn’t really featuring for the national side, Sharma remains a wicket-taking option in the IPL. His 23 wickets in 16 innings put him in the third position in this list of the top 5 players with most wickets against MI in IPL history, a number which he will be hoping to improve soon.

#1. Dwayne Bravo (28 Wickets)
Were it not for the three seasons Dwayne Bravo spent playing for the Mumbai Indians when the IPL first started, he could have been far and away the first name on this list of the top 5 players with most wickets against MI in IPL history. The fact that he still heads this list despite playing for Mumbai from 2008 to 2010 speaks volumes about Bravo’s talent with the ball, especially in the shortest format of the game.
The West Indian possesses a knack for maintaining a nagging line and length and also has a variety of variations that he can pull out at any time to flummox the batsman. A multiple-time winner of the Purple Cap (albeit for other franchises) Bravo has taken 28 wickets in 19 innings against his former side and is still in the running to extend his lead when the 2020 season kicks off!
