T20 WC 2024 : Jasprit Bumrah joins elite club, shines as second-highest wicket-taker for India in single edition

T20 WC 2024 : In a stellar display of skill and precision, Jasprit Bumrah has joined the ranks of cricketing legends by becoming the second-highest wicket-taker for India in a single edition of the T20 World Cup. His remarkable performance in the 2024 tournament has not only elevated his status within the team but also cemented his place in the annals of cricket history.

Bumrah displayed a stupendous performance against England in the semi-final match of the T20 World Cup 2024. Bumrah achieved the milestone after picking up two wickets against Jos Buttler's side.


In the ongoing marquee match, Bumrah has taken 13 wickets for Team India. Meanwhile, left-arm pacer Arshdeep Singh leads as the highest wicket-taker for India in a single edition of the T20 World Cup. Despite not taking any wickets in his two-over spell against England on Thursday, the 25-year-old has accumulated 15 wickets in the 2024 T20 World Cup.

Former India cricketer RP Singh ranks third on this list, with 12 wickets from the 2007 T20 World Cup.

Recapping India's previous semi-final match against England, Jos Buttler's team won the toss and opted to bowl first. Rohit Sharma scored 57 runs off 39 balls (6 fours and 2 sixes), and Suryakumar Yadav added 47 runs from 36 balls (4 fours and 2 sixes), propelling India to a total of 171/7. Hardik Pandya (23 runs from 13 balls, 1 four and 2 sixes) and Ravindra Jadeja (17* runs from 9 balls, 2 fours) also contributed significantly in the first innings.

Chris Jordan spearheaded the England bowling attack, taking three wickets while conceding 37 runs in his three-over spell.

During the run chase, England struggled to adapt to the pitch conditions, ultimately reaching only 103 runs in 16.4 overs. Harry Brook (25 runs from 19 balls, 3 fours) and Jos Buttler (23 runs from 15 balls, 4 fours) were the only notable batters for the team.

Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav led India's bowling, each taking three wickets, securing a 68-run victory for India. Jasprit Bumrah also contributed by taking two wickets while defending the 172-run target.

The T20 World Cup final is now set, with the unbeaten sides India and South Africa scheduled to clash in Barbados on Saturday.
