The highest wicket taker of the T20I series

Junior Dala emerged as the highest wicket-taker in the T20I series. Although he was hammered for 47 runs in the first T20I, Dala returned with 2 wickets in the match. He bowled quite impressively in the series taking 7 wickets in 3 matches.

Dala troubled the batsman with his pace throughout the series, especially Rohit Sharma who was trapped thrice by him in the series. With the bowling commitment that he showed in the last T20I, Dala is eyeing a permanent place in the T20 squad.
