Road Safety World Series T20 2020-21: Top wicket-takers

Tillakaratne Dilshan picked up the most wickets in the recently concluded Road Safety World Series T20 2020-21 with 12 scalps from 8 matches.

Tillakaratne Dilshan 12 wickets

Although Tillakaratne Dilshan was known for his batting throughout his 330 ODI career in which he scored over 10000 runs at an average of close to 40, he was not a bad bowler either and picked up 106 wickets in his ODI career as well. However, that he finished as the top wicket taker in the recently concluded Road Safety World Series T20 came as a bit of a surprise.

Dilshan pocketed 11 wickets from 8 matches while sending down a total of 25.3 overs at an average of 13.58 and an economy rate of 3.29, with the best of 4/6.

Yusuf Pathan 9 wickets 

Just like Dilshan, Yusuf Pathan is known more for his lusty blows than his handy off spin. However, he delivered for the Indian legends in both the departments in the Road Safety World Series T20 and picked up 9 wickets from just 5 innings at an average of 12.33, with the best of 3/28.

Munaf Patel 9 wickets 

Another metronomic bowler of the yesteryear, Munaf Patel showed his class yet again with 9 wickets for India legends in the Road Safety World Series T20. He bowled 23 overs in the competition and picked up his wickets at an average of 21.8 and an economy rate of 8.56, with the best of 4/19.

Monty Panesar 8 wickets 

Monty Panesar’s spin is still getting the job done. The England legends bowler took 8 wickets from five innings at an average of 12.25, an economy rate of 5.15 and a strike rate of 14.21 in the Road Safety World Series T20. He conceded 98 runs while bowling one maiden over in the competition and was the top wicket taker for England Legends.

Rangana Herath 8 wickets

Rangana Herath did well for Sri Lanka legends and finished as the second highest wicket taker for the team behind Dilshan, with 8 wickets from 7 matches at an average of 15.87 and an economy rate of 5.52.

Sulieman Benn 8 wickets

West Indies’ slow left arm orthodox bowler Sulieman Benn did not have a great international career and picked up 87, 39 and 18 wickets from 26 tests, 47 ODIs and 24 T20Is respectively. However, he ended up being the top wicket taker for West Indies legends in the Road Safety World Series T20.

Benn picked up 8 wickets from 6 innings at an average of 15.87 and an economy rate of 5.52.
