In cricket, every bowler works hard to dominate the batsmen and get wickets, but no bowler likes bowling no balls. No ball means when a bowler oversteps the line on the popping crease, entitling the batters to get an extra ball with the freedom of not losing a wicket until it’s stumping or run out. Overstepping sometimes costs a team the entire match if the most important batter gets out on it and the decision gets overturned. In a format where the bowler gets only 24 balls to bowl, it’s inevitable to deliver all balls without extras. We will take you through the bowlers who bowled the most no balls in T20 International.
|Bowler Name||No Balls|
The young bowling sensation from India may have impressed everyone with his lethal swing bowling and death bowling. However, Arshdeep owns the embarrassing feat of most no-balls bowled in the T20I. Since 2022, the left-arm seamer has played 33 T20Is and taken 50 wickets, including 16 no-balls. The Punjab-born has outrageous skills but his habit of bowling illegal deliveries might be the reason for a significant loss for his team.
One of the finest fast bowlers in white-ball cricket in the current era for Pakistan, Hasan Ali gets 2nd place on the unwanted tally of most no-balls bowled in T20 cricket. The right-arm skiddy pacer has overstepped the line 11 times in his career of 49 T20I matches. His wicket-to-wicket bowling ability blended with decent pace has aided him to grab 60 scalps at an impressive strike rate of 16.9.
West Indian all-rounder Keemo Paul has bowled the 3rd most no-balls in T20I history. Having played only 23 games for his country, he bagged 25 wickets but delivered past the line a whopping 11 times. His abysmal manner must have caused the Men in Maroon critical damages during matches.
At no.4 on the bizarre list of most no-balls bowled in T20Is, we have another Caribbean seamer, Oshane Thomas. He left his footprint in international cricket because of his electrifying pace. Sometimes to generate excessive pace, bowlers do overstep and the same is the case with 26 years old Thomas, having 11 no-balls in just 21 games in his name. After 2021 West Indies snubbed him from their T20 team.
Asrhdeep Singh has Most No Balls in T20 International which is 16 no-balls as of now.
