Arshdeep Singh – 10 dismissals –
Arshdeep Singh emerged as one of India’s most effective bowlers throughout their attack with the ball, particularly when he was bowling with the new ball and in the latter overs of the match. This was especially true while he was bowling with the new ball. As a direct consequence of his outstanding periods, both India and South Africa got off to productive beginnings with the ball early on in the game. Even though he only went wicketless in one game (India’s semi-final match versus England), he showed a large level of promise to become India’s main bowler in this format in the very near future. This potential was shown despite the fact that he only went wicketless in one game. This potential was made clear by the fact that he only went wicketless once during the whole of the competition.
Sikandar Raza – 10 wickets –
