Top 4: Most wickets in T20I for India
#1 Jasprit Bumrah : 64 T20 International Wickets
If it was not for his marriage, Bumrah would have stayed as the highest wicket-taker for India in T20 internationals. Bumrah is a gift of IPL to Indian cricket. His death-bowling skill and game reading ability are second to none. He is a blessing for any captain in the shortest format of the game. Till now in his 54 T20I games, Bumrah has taken 64 wickets with an outstanding bowling average of 19.9. Meanwhile, he overtook Chahal in the World Cup game against Scotland last night where he picks up 2 wickets.
#2 Yuzvendra Chahal: 63 T20 International Wickets
The leg-spinner is one of the most clever bowlers in world cricket right now. With his experience in Chess, it is quite obvious that he outfox the batsman easily to get wickets. Chahal has taken 63 wickets in his 49 T20 international matches. He was also the first Indian bowler to pick a 5-wicket haul in a T20 international game. His bowling average of 25.4 in T20Is speaks volumes for his wicket-taking ability. However, the last India versus England T20I series was not great for the leg-spinner.
#3 Ravichandran Ashwin: 55 T20 International Wickets
Ashwin was the first Indian bowler to take 50 T20 International wickets. The off-spinner from Tamil Nadu made his T20I debut way back in July 2010 against Zimbabwe. Ashwin with a bag full of variations is regarded as one of the smartest operators in the game. However, Ashwin lost place in the limited-overs format for India post the 2017 West Indies series. Though in spite of missing lots of games, he is still on our list of most wickets for India in T20 internationals. So far in T20Is Ashwin has taken 55 wickets at a bowling average of 22.5 in his 48 matches.
#4 Bhuvneshwar Kumar: 49 T20 International Wickets
During the ongoing India versus England series, Bhuvneshwar Kumar took his first international wicket after a long gap of 459 days. He was out of the team after sustaining a groin injury during the IPL 2020. He was nearly out of action for 3 months. Though, after a good Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy for Uttar Pradesh, he was named in the Indian squad for the England series. The pacer has taken 49 T20 international wickets till now in his 51 games with an outstanding economy rate of 6.98. Bhuvneshwar Kumar is also the first Indian player to take five-wicket hauls in all formats of the game. With the T20 world cup coming very soon, Bhuvi will look to stay fit for the prestigious T20 World Cup. Bhuvi was also the man of the match in the final match of the series against England.
