India Squad For T20 World Cup 2021: 3 Indian Bowlers Who Can End Up As The Top Wicket-Taker. The BCCI announced India’s 15-member squad for the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 on Wednesday with some very surprising inclusions and omissions in the side aiming to lift the title this year.

The squad that has been announced seems to have a mixed band of players who surely have the calibre of helping India realize its dream of winning an ICC trophy after winning it the last time in 2013. As far as the bowling options are concerned, the selection committee has taken some very surprising yet promising decisions.

Hardik Pandya, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Rahul Chahar, Varun Chakravarthy, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and Mohammed Shami are the bowling option that Virat Kohli has, going into the tournament. Let’s take a look at the 3 Indian bowlers who can end up as the tournament’s highest wicket-taker.

It is no surprise that Jasprit Bumrah will certainly make it into this list as the top contender. India’s best bowler at present and one of the world’s best, Jasprit Bumrah and his prowess need no introduction to the cricketing world. When the IPL action took place last year in the UAE, Bumrah ended up as the second-highest wicket-taker of the tournament.

Bumrah has already picked 115 wickets in 99 IPL matches so far and for the Men in Blue, he has picked 59 wickets in just 49 innings. He will be India’s most poisonous spearhead in the T20 World Cup.

2. Bhuvneshwar Kumar

If we speak of experience, no other bowler in this lineup even comes close to Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Even in the most challenging of circumstances, Bhuvneshwar has the ability to swing the cricket ball both ways in the air.

With 50 wickets to his name for team India in 51 T20I innings, Bhuvneshwar Kumar will be crucial for the Men in Blue, especially in the opening powerplay as the Men in Blue will look to annihilate their opposition.

1. Rahul Chahar

Rahul Chahar has been picked in the squad ahead of Yuzvendra Chahal because of the way he bowls quick through the air unlike Chahal, who gives a lot of flight to the ball. The spinner has been magnificent in the last couple of seasons for his franchise in the IPL, Mumbai Indians.

In IPL 2020, Rahul Chahar ended picking 15 wickets in 15 innings. In IPL 2021, he had already picked 11 wickets in 7 games, being fourth on the list of the top wicket-takers when the tournament came to a standstill earlier this year.
