Most Wickets by Bowlers in ICC T20 World Cup 2024: The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 is underway in the West Indies and the USA. Though T20 cricket is largely recognised for being a batting-friendly format, it is bowlers whose performance often decides the outcome of the match. At the T20 World Cup 2024, the wickets are likely to be slow and thus bowlers could enjoy the sluggish nature of the pitches. As of now, Afghanistan’s Fazalhaq Farooqi leads the list of bowlers with the most wickets after he got a four-wicket haul against New Zealand. With this, he now has nine wickets in his bag. South Africa's Anrich Nortje has eight wickets and in second place.
