It is not very common to see bowlers take hat-tricks in the IPL, in fact, there have been some years where not even one hat-trick was taken by a bowler.
Some seasons, however, have seen multiple hat-tricks. This article aims to list out all the hat-tricks that have taken place in the history of the Indian Premier League.
In the history of the Indian Premier League, 20 hat-tricks have been taken, including six in 2008 and 2017. The only seasons without a hat-trick were 2015, 2018, and 2020.
In the history of the IPL, Indian spin-bowler Amit Mishra has taken the most number of hat-tricks, with a total of 3 hat-tricks to his name.
