T20 World Cup: 23 year old bowler is repeating the performance of Mohammed Shami in ODI WC


New Delhi. If any team has surprised the most with its performance so far in the T20 World Cup 2024, then it is Afghanistan. The Afghan fighters have won both their matches easily. While Afghanistan (Afghanistan cricket team) defeated Uganda by 125 runs in its opening match, in the second match it defeated strong New Zealand by 84 runs. With this performance, the Afghan team has staked a claim to enter the Super 8 and has also issued a warning to the big teams in the upcoming matches. Although this performance is the result of ‘team effort’, but Fazalhaq Farooqi in bowling and Rahmanullah Gurbaz in batting were its leaders. Both are currently the highest run and wicket takers for their country.

Fast bowler Fazalhaq Farooqui has become the center of discussion with his/her performance. The bowling performance of this 23-year-old player in the T20 World Cup 2024 so far is similar to that of Indian fast bowler Mohammed Shami in the ODI World Cup 2023.

Most wickets taken till date, best bowling performance too

Apart from wickets, bowling average, strike rate, Fazalhaq Farooqui is currently the top performer in terms of performance in the innings. This left-arm fast bowler does not have very high speed but he/she deceives the batsmen with his/her variations. The slow wickets of West Indies are also proving to be suitable for his/her style of bowling. Farooqui has so far taken 9 wickets for only 26 runs in two matches of this World Cup. During this, he/she has taken 4 wickets in an innings once and 5 wickets once. The best bowling analysis of T20 World Cup 2024 is currently in the name of Farooqui. In the match against Uganda at Providence Stadium Guyana on June 3, he/she took 5 wickets for just 9 runs in four overs. This is the fourth best performance overall in the T20 World Cup. Only Sri Lanka’s Ajantha Mendis (6/8, 2012), Rangana Herath (5/3, 2014) and Pakistan’s Umar Gul (5/6, 2009) are better than Farooqui in this matter. Farooqui was the first bowler to take 5 wickets in an innings in the current World Cup. After this, West Indies’ Akil Hussain became the second bowler to take 5 wickets in an innings (5/11) against Uganda on June 8.
