Indian pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah has surpassed all-rounder Hardik Pandya to become the Men in Blue’s third-highest wicket-taker in T20I cricket. Bumrah achieved this milestone during India’s thrilling six-run victory over Pakistan in the T20 World Cup 2024 at the Nassau County International Stadium in New York on Sunday.

In this crucial match, Bumrah delivered an exceptional performance, taking three wickets for just 14 runs in his four overs, maintaining an impressive economy rate of 3.50. His scalps included key Pakistani batsmen Babar Azam, Mohammed Rizwan, and Iftikhar Ahmed.

Bumrah’s career in T20Is has been remarkable. In 64 matches, he has claimed 79 wickets at an economy rate of 6.44, with his best figures being 3/11. In comparison, Hardik Pandya, now in the fourth position, has 78 wickets in 94 T20Is, with best figures of 4/16.

The top spot for India’s leading wicket-taker in T20Is is held by spin maestro Yuzvendra Chahal, who has taken 96 wickets in 80 games at an economy rate of 8.19, with best figures of 6/25. Following him is swing specialist Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who has 90 wickets in 87 matches at an economy rate of 6.96, with best figures of 5/4.

Bumrah’s consistent performance suggests that he could soon become India’s leading wicket-taker in T20Is. Additionally, he is on track to potentially become the first Indian bowler to reach the milestone of 100 wickets in the T20 format.
