Asian bowlers

The continent of Asia has some of the best bowlers, and it is no surprise that some of these bowlers are from the Men in Blue.

While many question his death bowling, there is no doubt about his quality. With Jasprit Bumrah injured and resting, Bhuvneshwar Kumar has ruled the roost.

Who is on top?

Bhuvneshwar Kumar has taken 22 wickets in 15 T20I matches in 2022. His career-best figures of 5/4 also came in 2022 against Afghanistan.

In fact, Bhuvi's 31 wickets in the calendar year of 2022 are also the most by a T20I bowler across all the continents!

Best overall as well!

India's leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal occupies the 2nd spot on this list with 14 wickets in 14 T20I matches on Asian pitches.

Harshal Patel, who is India's death overs specialist, is third on this list with 14 wickets in 12 matches in Asia. This is despite his injury issues.

Pakistan pacer Haris Rauf is fourth on this list. The bowler has 12 wickets in nine T20I matches on Asian pitches in 2022.

With Bhuvi's death bowling called into question, the return of Jasprit Bumrah from injury will be a mighty relief for the pacer.

Bumrah return a boost

However, the Bhuvneshwar Kumar who used to finish games for India is missing. His abilities will really help India clinch a second T20 World Cup.

Can Bhuvneshwar improve?
