For as bleak and devoid of action 2020 turned out to be, the year did have its fair share of cricketing action. Particularly in the T20 arena: while international cricket still hasn’t quite returned to its affluent state, franchise cricket leagues seem to be thriving around all corners of the globe. Consequently, the year saw a number of bowlers rise up to the occasion and add to the stardom of the aforementioned leagues.
Besides the regular customers, like the Indian Premier League (IPL), Big Bash League (BBL) and Caribbean Premier League (CPL), some of the still-developing T20 mega-events, like the Pakistan Super League (PSL), Bangladesh Premier League (BPL), and even the newly formed Lanka Premier League (LPL) gained considerable traction. All thanks to a select few bowlers, and the spirited performances they were able to deliver all-round the year.
So, who are these bowlers? How well did they perform? What can fans expect from them in the future? Let’s try to mull over those questions; as we rank the top-10 bowlers from T20 franchise cricket in 2020- based on how many wickets they picked.
Here are Top 10 Franchise T20 League bowlers of 2020
10) Jason Holder
West Indies captain Jason Holder has often been regarded as a Test specialist, thanks to the consistent lines and lengths he’s able to maintain in his bowling. 2020, however, turned out to be a fresh break for the West Indies’ red-ball captain, as he showed a good run of form in several T20 leagues across the globe.
While it was his promoted batting in the middle-order that grabbed the most attention, his form with the ball was quite impressive as well. Holder played for the Barbados Tridents and Sunrisers Hyderabad and is also currently involved with the Sydney Sixers in the Big Bash League. His stats from last year read 26 wickets from 20 matches.
With the T20 World Cup coming up, it’s quite obvious that Holder is trying to establish his credentials in the shortest format by plying his trade in various foreign leagues. But in addition to his cricket prowess, Holder’s experience as a national captain is also a handy bonus, as it showed in SRH’s spirited turn-around in the IPL 2020.
