ICC T20 World Cup 2024 News

14th June 2024

Currently, Afghanistan’s young sensation Fazalhaq Farooqi holds the crown. Farooqi has been in scintillating form, capturing an impressive nine wickets in just the first two matches of the tournament. His blend of pace and accuracy has proven to be a nightmare for batsmen, and he aims to maintain his dominant streak.

Hot on his heels is South Africa’s express fast bowler, Anrich Nortje. Nortje has harnessed his blistering speed to claim eight wickets so far. His consistent ability to clock high 140s makes him an indispensable asset in the South African bowling attack.

11th June 2024

The South Africa vs Bangladesh match in the T20 World Cup 2024 turned into an absolute thriller, with the Proteas clinching a narrow 4-run victory over the Bangla Tigers on Monday. 

Bangladesh seemed poised to win, needing just 27 runs from the final 4 overs. However, a DRS loophole played in South Africa’s favor, denying Bangladesh a crucial boundary that ultimately made the difference.

The pivotal moment occurred in the 17th over of Bangladesh’s innings, with Mahmudullah and Towid Hridoy at the crease. On the second ball of the over, Mahmudullah attempted a flick, but the ball struck his pads and sped to the boundary behind the stumps.

In the T20 World Cup 2024, the pitches are expected to be slow, which could benefit the bowlers.

As of now, Afghanistan’s Fazalhaq Farooqi is leading the list of bowlers with the most wickets. The Afghan pacer took an impressive 5/9 against Uganda. You can check out the full list of bowlers with the most wickets in the T20 World Cup 2024 below
