The T20 format is really topsy turvy and the batsmen edge out the bowlers when it comes to the balance of the format. However, the quality of bowlers can prove to be the deciding factor in a T20 game. There are enough contenders for the BPL Most Wickets 2019 position and the batsmen will have to be wary of them.

As the tracks in Bangladesh can be exploited by the spinners more than the pacers, one can expect a few spinners to be in the list of the Bangladesh Premier League most wickets list. The leading wicket-taker in the history of the competition, Shakib Al Hasan, will be missing the tournament because of his ban. This will provide an opportunity for others to raise their game and try to get ahead of the all-rounder.
Another Bangladesh veteran Mashrafe Mortaza is second in the list of BPL Most Wickets and is 33 wickets behind Shakib before the start of the 2019 edition. Therefore, it is highly unlikely that the left-handed all-rounder will be pushed to the second position.
The other contenders for being the highest wicket-takers in this edition of BPL are global stars like Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Thisara Perera, Wahab Riaz, Shahid Afridi, Mohammad Amir, Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman and Mohammad Nabi.
