In today’s Dream11 Team Prediction, we will be talking about the bowlers. Yes, the bowlers who in our understandings are expected to end the calendar year with most wickets in T20Is.
The cricketing calendar is due for three mega-events namely IPL, Asia Cup and the ICC T20 World Cup. However, no specific dates have been announced yet for any of the tournaments courtesy COVID-9 pandemic.
The governing bodies of these tournaments ACC, BCCI and ICC are taking all possible measures for the tournament to get underway as soon as things get settled, but looking at the current scenario, nothing looks possible.
Not only cricket but all other sporting events around the globe are also going through this torrid period. La Liga, English Premier League, Roland Garros, Wimbledon and even the Tokyo Olympics have come under the radar of this havoc Coronavirus. All the sporting ties have either postponed or cancelled as of now.
We have chosen two standout bowlers in the form of Rashid Khan and Kagiso Rabada. One is an impressive leg-spinner, while the other one is a ruthless seamer hailing from South Africa. There is a third name as well in the form of India’s Jasprit Bumrah who is the leading wicket-taker for India.
The number one ranked T20I bowler has been a monumental figure in Afghanistan’s line-up. The hottest prodigy of any and every franchise T20 League around the globe, Rashid Khan has managed 89 wickets from just 48 matches at an impressive economy rate of 6.14.
From just 10 T20I’s in 2019, Rashid Khan managed 20 wickets with an economy of 6.87 and best figures of 5 for 27. Since 2016, he has been the leading wicket-taker in T20Is with 87 scalps and will look to continue with his rich vein of form in 2020.
Not many bowlers start their international career with a hat-trick, but Kagiso Rabada was one of them. The tall-lanky built for sheer pace and intimidate with his exhilarating bowling, the 24-year old has 30 wickets from 24 T20Is.
The numbers might not look promising but the ever so improving Kagiso Rabada is due for a glory. Could 2020 be his year? We will have to wait for the same.
The final name which we have chosen in this list is Jasprit Bumrah. India’s premier pacer was tackling with injuries in 2019 and will be looking to lead India’s pace attack in the T20 World Cup 2020.
Since 2016, he has been the second higher wick-taker in T20Is with 59 scalps to his name. He is fully fit now and would be looking ahead to shrug off his injury woes from the last year.
