By Hitesh Jain on Oct 13, 2021

T20 cricket has become the crowd’s favorite game because cricket lovers never get bored as the game never decelerates at any stage. Most of the rules go in the favor of batters and allow them to play their shot freely. This implies that succeeding as a bowler in this shortest format of cricket is a challenging task. But there are several bowlers who have proved themselves with their bowling skills and taken 5 wickets within 4 overs.
