Five Wicket Haul in T20 World Cup 2007-2024

Five wicket haul in T20 World Cup: When a bowler bagged 5 wickets or more he will be tagged as the player to bag a five wicket haul. Apart from any other format, bagging a five-wicket haul in T20 format is not that easy for a player.

With just 4 overs(maximum) allotment, a bowler needs to put pressure on the batter with his tight bowling abilities to achieve the five-wicket haul. In a grand event like the ICC T20 World Cup, a bowler needs to think out of the box to make things in his favour.
