T20 World Cup 2022: Who took the most wickets in the T20 World Cup? There is no Indian in the top 10 apart from Ashwin

T20 World Cup Record : ICC T20 World Cup 2022 (ICC T20 World Cup 2022) is being held in Australia from October 16 to November 13. Almost all the countries have announced their teams for the upcoming World Cup and BCCI has also recently announced the Indian team. The return of Bumrah and Harshal to the team is good news for the Indian team this time… but the World Cup will decide how exactly the Indian bowling will perform. Before this year’s World Cup, if we consider the bowling records in the T20 World Cup, there is only one Indian in the top 10 and that is R. Ashwin (R Ashwin). As Ashwin is also in this year’s T20 squad, the team will have expectations from him this year as well. So who has taken the most wickets in T20 World Cup matches so far i.e. from 2007 to 2021? Let’s see…

So the number one player in this list is not a full-time bowler but an all-round cricketer Shakib Al Hasan. From the first World Cup i.e. from 2007 to 2021, Shakib has taken 41 wickets in 30 innings of 31 matches with an economy rate of 6.43. He tops the list. On the second number is Pakistan’s former legendary cricketer Shahid Afridi who has taken 39 wickets in 31 innings in 34 matches from 2007 to 2016 with an economy rate of 6.71. Lasith Malinga, the former legendary cricketer of Sri Lanka, is on the third number and he has taken 38 wickets in 31 innings of 31 matches with an economy of 7.43.
