Alzarri Joseph, the 20-year old hailing from the Windies, broke Sohail Tanvir's 10 years and 11 months old record of best figures in the Indian Premier League. Sohail Tanvir took 6-14 against the Chennai Super Kings at Jaipur on 4th May 2008.
After the 11 editions of IPL, young Joseph eventually smashed the vintage record with the figures of 6-12 which he took against Sunrisers Hyderabad on his IPL debut.
Playing for Mumbai Indians, he demolished the Hyderabad's batting lineup and propelled Mumbai to a 40-run victory.
The records are meant to be broken and Joseph proved it. His spell of 3.4 overs re-shaped the bowling records of IPL and finally, Pakistan's left-arm pacer, Sohail Tanvir's supremacy in IPL bowling ranks, came to an end.
