The ninth edition of the T20 World Cup will be played in the West Indies who will co-host along with the emerging cricketing nation United States. The surfaces in both the venues are expected to aid the bowlers, at least from the outset. This contrasts with what we see in the T20 format, where bat dominates ball most times.

As we all know, cricket is team game and a complete performance from each of the players will fetch a team a win. But for a team to win a tournament, their bowlers should perform often. We will see which of the bowlers are likely to have a good time in the upcoming T20 World Cup.

Here are the five bowlers to watch out for:

Rashid Khan – Afghanistan 

The wily leg-spinner has been a match-winner for the Afghanistan over the years and if you have to pick a bowler in your team for any conditions, it would be Rashid Khan. He didn’t have the best of IPL’s, but the conditions were conducive for bowlers in the tournament.

With the pitches in the Caribbean and USA set to suit the slower bowlers, Rashid Khan will get purchase off the surface. Having been a prolific wicket-taker in his format with 138 wickets in just 85 T20Is, the Afghan team will hope that their star player will be at his best in the tournament.

Jasprit Bumrah – India 

India’s pace spearhead would come into the tournament with plenty of confidence and match practice behind him. With the conditions expected to be like what we get in the sub-continent, Bumrah should be enjoying his stint in the tournament.

The pacer has been prolific in 2024 having taken 47 wickets across formats both India and Mumbai Indians. Based on this form, it is a safe bet to say that Bumrah will have a great World Cup. 

Mohammad Amir – Pakistan 

This Pakistani pacer has just come out of international retirement to be in time for included in the T20 World Cup squad. In his absence from the national team, Amir has tried his trade in various T20 leagues across the globe, including West Indies and USA.

So, it should be a familiar territory for a player like Amir who has played a lot of T20 cricket and found a great deal of success everywhere.  On his hay day, the left-arm can be unpredictable, and he will only add strength to an already strong Pakistani pace attack.

Jofra Archer – England

Another comeback man makes it to the list, and he is none other than the England speedster Jofra Archer. The pacer has recovered just in time before the World Cup and citing his importance, the England team management has included him in the squad. 

The only game time for the pacer will be the home series against Pakistan and he had a great comeback game taking 2/28 in his comeback game. This should augur well for the England team going to the World Cup.

Kagiso Rabada – South Africa

Rabada has been one of the consistent performers for the Proteas in all the format and his form will be important for the team if they are to do well in the T20 World Cup. The pacer is known to be up his in-crunch situations and it will be fascinating to see how he goes about in the World Cup.
