Matches 5, Wickets 8, Avg 21.00, ER 8.40, BB 2/23
The all-rounder, deceptively quick at times, has eight scalps in five matches at a good average but a somewhat high economy rate. In the Super 10 Group 1 clash against South Africa, he picked up the key wickets of de Kock and Faf du Plessis to return 2 for 28, his best effort.
Matches 5, Wickets 7, Avg 15.42, ER 5.68, BB 3/12
The wrist-spinner has been one of the most impressive bowlers in the tournament, picking up wickets and keeping the run-scoring in check, especially in the Power Play overs. His 3 for 12 restricted Sri Lanka to just 122 in Bangalore, while against Afghanistan in Nagpur, Badree took 3 for 14 to keep the total to 123.
Matches 5, Wickets 7, Avg 19.85, ER 8.17, BB 2/23
The left-arm paceman has taken seven wickets in five matches so far, the swing into the right-hander he has got at the start of the innings particularly noteworthy. He was at his best in the Super 10 Group 1 match against Afghanistan, where he took 2 for 23 and chipped in with an unbeaten 20 in 17 balls.
Matches 5, Wickets 6, Avg 25.33, ER 8.00, BB 4/28
The strongly built right-arm medium pacer has six sticks in five matches. In England’s fourth Super 10 Group 1 clash, Jordan ran through the Sri Lankan line-up in New Delhi to return career-best T20I figures of 4 for 28.
Matches 5, Wickets 6, Avg 25.50, ER 7.65, BB 2/20
In the absence of Lasith Malinga, the all-rounder has emerged as probably the best death-over pacer in the tournament, his mix of slower deliveries foxing more than one batsman. He was at his best against South Africa in Nagpur, while that economy rate, despite him bowling in the end overs, proves his value.
Matches 5, Wickets 5, Avg 26.20, ER 9.35, BB 2/34
The all-rounder has taken five wickets in as many matches with a decent average but has often gone for a lot of runs. His best bowling figures so far in the tournament came against South Africa in Mumbai, where he accounted for Quinton de Kock and Hashim Amla, the well-set openers, to return 2 for 34.
