Team India is scheduled for the home T20I series against South Africa, starting on 9 June. While South Africa has announced a full-strength squad for the se as this series will be a great opportunity for some players ahead of the T20I World Cup later this year.
Team India is on the edge of creating a world record of winning 113 T20I series consecutively. On the other hand, it will be South Africa’s first T20I series after last year’s T20I World Cup in UAE. In India’s condition, several bowlers from both sides will look to produce some match-winning spells in this upcoming series.
Here are the three predicted players for being the leading wicket-taker:
This Indian leggie enjoyed another stellar Indian T20 Leauge season for his new franchise, Rajasthan. His form was instrumental to guide the franchise to the final of the season.
In 17 matches, he bagged 27 wickets at an economy of 7.75. It helped him to become the highest wicket-taker in the 15th edition of the Indian T20 League. He even bagged a hattrick and a five-wicket haul against the Kolkata franchise.
Team India will hope to use him as a wicket-taker in this series as well. However, he does not hold a great record against the Proteas as he picked up only one wicket in two T20Is. He even conceded runs at an economy of 12.87.
