Bowlers with 450 wickets in T20 cricket

Only Dwayne Bravo, Rashid Khan, and Imran Tahir have picked up 450 wickets or more in T20 cricket.

Dwayne Bravo 587 

Dwayne Bravo has picked up the most wickets across various domestic T20 leagues in the world. He leads the list by a fair margin with 587 wickets at an average of 24.02 and an economy rate of 8.21 with 11 4-wicket hauls and 2 5-wicket hauls.

Bravo made his debut back in 2006, and despite having retired from international cricket, he continues to go strong in the shortest format of the game.

Rashid Khan 451  

Rashid Khan recently became only the third bowler to reach 450 wickets in T20 cricket after he picked up a 4-wicket haul against Lucknow Super Giants in IPL 2022.

This is what GT captain Hardik Pandya had to say after Rashid’s effort helped Gujarat to a 62 run victory.

“Really, really proud of the boys. It is a great effort to qualify before the 14th game in this league. To be honest, in the last game, we kind of thought that the game was over before it was over. We were always under pressure in all the other games that we won, and we felt that we’d finish off the last game with the kind of batting we had. That was learning we took. We just wanted to be ruthless today, and relax post game.”, Hardik Pandya, the winning captain said.

“I rate Sai Kishore quite high as a left-arm spinner. Because of the kind of fast bowlers we had, it wasn’t possible to play him and Jayant Yadav. Lucknow was a bit short in their lengths, and fuller lengths were working. Our bowlers did everything that we asked of them, and we ticked all boxes today. I always feel that if you lose a game like the one we lost in our last game, we win and lose games as a team. Yes, we did not do what we wanted to do. We messed it up, but we messed it up as a team. Everyone stood by each other, and we had a get-together post game and made sure the vibe was always there.”, He further added.

Imran Tahir 451

South Africa’s Imran Tahir who continues to ply his trade in various T20 leagues around the world after playing his first T20 match in 2006 has also taken more than 450 wickets at an average of 19.5 and an economy rate of 6.91.

Because, what else is there to write about in this world, right?
