Women's T20 World Cup 2020 Most Wickets

Bowling is one of the three crucial aspects of cricket. But as the game has modernised, one might argue it has become more of a batsman's game. Especially with the evolution of T20 cricket, where it's all about striking the ball out of the park ruthlessly and amassing as many runs under those many overs, the shorter format has turned into an exhibition of batsman ship.

But recently fans have started to realise the importance of a good bowling unit in a T20 game. Restricting the opponents to a measly total or defending a small target, all is possible with the help of a good bowling unit. And what stands testimony to a bowlers ability than their ability to take wickets.

Given above, is a table containing the statistics of Women's T20 World Cup most wickets.

As expected, the record for wickets in Women's T20 World Cup is held by none other than one of the T20 specialist bowlers in women's cricket and one of the best all-rounders, Ellyse Perry. Perry has taken the Australian Women's Cricket team to unattainable heights in all three formats of the game with her all-round skills. But unarguably her bowling abilities is a more important asset for the Australian Women's Cricket team.
