Most wickets in T20Is vs India
Ish Sodhi holds the record for taking the most wickets in T20Is against India with 20 scalps.
20 Ish Sodhi
New Zealand’s Ish Sodhi made his T20 International debut in 2014 and has already picked up 88 wickets from 66 T20 Internationals.
He has bowled a total of 226.3 overs and has a brilliant average of 21.97 and an economy rate of 8.05. Sodhi has the best of 4/28.
He has troubled India time and again and has picked up 20 wickets against the opposition – particularly in the big matches in the World Cups, Sodhi has always proved to be the nemesis of India.
16 Mitchell Santner
Sodhi’s partner in crime Mitchell Santner has picked up 16 wickets against India in T20 Internationals out of his total of 66 wickets from 62 T20Is between 2015 and 2021.
Santner was the stand-in captain of New Zealand in the last T20 match of the bilateral series in 2021 in the absence of Kane Williamson and Tim Southee and had this to say after the team suffered a white wash.
“Tough one to predict what the dew is going to be like. They bowled very well at the top, especially Axar. Credit to India for the way they played throughout the series. We were probably off. Came up against a very good Indian side. There were periods in every game. Pressure Rahul and Rohit put on us was tough to come back from. He’s obviously a great player for us (Kane).”
“With the schedule being quite tight, it gives other guys an opportunity. With the WC being in 11 months time you always look ahead. The way Guptill batted at the top, different guys chipping in at different times (positives). Challenging as a spinner with dew around. Second game was very wet. The way Ashwin and Axar adapted was brilliant.”
15 Tim Southee
Another New Zealander Tim Southee has bowled well against India and has 15 wickets in T20 Internationals against the opposition.
Sri Lanka DushmanthaChameera has picked 14 wickets against India in T20 Internationals.
He was particularly brilliant on the last tour of India when they were without their first choice players who were in England for the world test Championship final and the marquee test series.
