Taking wickets in the most exoteric format of the game needs enormous crafts. Nowadays, the cricketing world is leaning towards batting more compared to bowling, as dead pitches are prepared very often for the shortest format of the game. But if you have variations in your armory, then being a bowler you can rule the game too by executing them precisely. Even on the flat wickets, we have seen bowlers wreaking havoc with their exceptional piece of bowling. Bowlers are superior to batsmen because of the lack of help from the wicket. England faced Australia in the first-ever T20 game in 2004. As per the ICC data, 64 teams play T20 cricket at the highest level, to have a name on the list of the top 10 bowlers with the most wickets in women’s T20 is always a great achievement.
West Indian off-break bowler Anisa Mohammad is on the top of the chart of the bowlers with the most wickets in Women’s T20, with 125 wickets in 110 matches. Guess, who is in the 2nd position, none other than Australian ace all-rounder Ellyse Perry (115 wickets), followed by Proteas Women pace bowler Shabnim Ismail, who has grabbed 110 wickets so far in the T20 cricket. It’s almost next to impossible that on a record list you will not get an Indian, Poonam Yadav has made her way in the 6th position on the chart of the bowlers with the most wickets in Women’s T20s.
