The qualifiers for the T20 World Cup start this Sunday, as the biggest party of the shortest format is about to begin!
As we all know, bowlers are very important in the T20s. The World Cup will be no different! Here are the top 5 bowlers who can take the most number of wickets in ICC World T20 2021!
#5 – Rashid Khan
The rockstar from Afghanistan has had quite a T20I career! In 51 matches, he has taken a mind-blowing 95 wickets at a world-beating average of just 12.63, coupled with the economy of only 6.22!
He will once again look to do well for his men in blue and red!
#4 – Jasprit Bumrah
The star bowler of India has been on another level ever since bursting onto the international scene! His record in all 3 formats have been phenomenal, so T20I is no exception.
In 49 matches, he has taken 59 wickets, at an economy of 6.67 and averaging 20.25 while doing so!
He is a strong contender for the most number of wickets in this edition!
#3 – Tabraiz Shamsi
The No.1-ranked T20 bowler in the world is in very good form coming into the T20 World Cup.
In 42 matches, he has 49 wickets to his name at a measly economy rate of 6.79! Can he take the most number of wickets and help South Africa win their first-ever T20 World Cup?
#2 – Wanindu Hasaranga
The Sri Lankan spinner has been a shining light in an otherwise bleak-looking future of his country’s cricket team.
In 24 T20Is, he has claimed 36 wickets at an average of 15.47 and a cheap economy rate of 6.58! His good run can also ensure a deep run for Sri Lanka into the tournament!
#1 – Anrich Nortje
The speedster from South Africa has had two brilliant back-to-back IPLs in the UAE! He has claimed 32 wickets in just 23 matches that he has played in this country.
Although his records for the Proteas aren’t as good, but he will be a force to be reckoned with. This makes him a serious contender for the most number of wickets in WT20 2021!
So these are the 5 bowlers who can take the most number of wickets in this tournament!
