Indian bowling is in news all over and the reason for that is the weak bowling of Indian bowlers in death overs. Indian bowlers are conceding many runs in the death overs of crucial matches. They failed in the super 4 matches of the Asia cup and they also failed against Australia in the first T20I. in this article we will see 4 Indian bowlers with the worst economy in death overs in T20Is.
#4 Ashish Nehra
Former Indian left-arm pacer, Ashish Nehra is at No.4 on our list. Nehra does not have a long T20I bowler but looking at his stats he was not a good death bowler. Nehra’s economy was 9.07 in death overs in T20Is which is the fourth worst by an Indian bowler.
#3 Shardul Thakur
Indian right-arm fast bowler, Shardul Thakur is a good wicket taker bowler but when it comes to runs, he has one of the worst economy rates among Indian bowlers. Thakur has an economy of 9.12 in death overs.
#2 Bhuvneshwar Kumar
You will never expect Bhuvneshwar Kumar in this list because he is one of the best in the world but not in death overs. In India’s last three matches it was Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s 19th over which was a game changer. Kumar is brilliant with the new ball but he has not got that ability in death overs. Kumar has an economy of 9.49 in death overs which raises concern for India.
#1 Harshal Patel
After the Asia cup 2022, it was a question about Indian bowling, and after seeing the names of Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel in the squad fans were happy but unfortunately, Harshal Patel failed to deliver in the first match against Australia. Patel is a specialist in death bowling. He is a wicket-taker but he leaked too many runs. Patel’s economy in death overs is 11.50.
