Top 10 Bowlers with most wickets in a T20 tournament

Twenty20, the brash form of cricket, is generally referred to as a batsman’s format. But, this fact doesn’t hold true for some of the extraordinary bowlers around the world. With the conditions favoring them on most occasions, the batsmen may often act as bullies, tearing them apart mercilessly. But the bowlers too have adapted and have found ways to get better of their opponents. Some bowlers, with their brilliant performances, have shown that the T20 format is not all about bowlers getting thrashed.

Similarly, we try to list out the ten bowlers who have topped the bowling charts with most wicket in a Twenty20 tournament.
