The Pakistan cricket team has not been doing really well in limited overs cricket of late as the bowling has struggled to take wickets which has often wasted the efforts of the batsmen who have enjoyed decent form in this time period.
According to statistics, the main issue in Pakistan’s bowling has been the powerplay bowling as the bowlers have not taken enough wickets in the first 10 overs which has mostly resulted in big scores against them.
None of the Pakistani bowlers features in the list of top wicket-takers in the powerplay overs since the previous edition of ICC Cricket World Cup in 2015. New Zealand’s Trent Boult has been exceptional with the new ball as he has the most number of wickets in the list i.e., 44 wickets.
The list even features players from low ranked teams which do not play as much ODI matches as Pakistan as the likes of Tendai Chatara (28 wickets), Dawlat Zadran (23 wickets), and Tim Murtagh (21 wickets) have also done reasonably well in this period.
