Team India has performed very well in the T20 World Cup 2024. And has entered the second round without any hindrance. The main reason for this strong performance of Team India is the dangerous bowlers of the team, who have surprised every team. Jasprit Bumrah has proved to be a bowling star. No team’s batsmen have an answer to his fancy balls. It seems that all-rounder Hardik Pandya has also given good support to this good performance of Bumrah. Surprisingly, apart from taking wickets, Pandya is also at the forefront in terms of ‘dot ball’ at this time.

You may be surprised to read this but this is true after the group stage. Before the start of IPL 2024, questions were raised on Hardik Pandya’s form. He was failing in batting and the batsmen in front were also making a mockery of his bowling. In such a situation, the question arose whether he would have the same form in T20 World Cup 2024 or there could be some improvement. But after 3 matches of Team India, it became clear that Hardik had taken the wrong decision.

Leading in wickets and dot balls

Hardik brought success to Team India in every match of the group stage. In the first match, he took 3 wickets for 27 runs. After this, he took 2 wickets for 24 runs against Pakistan and 2 wickets for 14 runs against America. In this way, he has taken 7 wickets in 3 matches, which is the highest for Team India in the current tournament. Jasprit Bumrah has taken 5 wickets in 3 matches.

But the statistics of dot balls are more surprising than wickets. A dot ball is a ball on which no runs are scored. Hardik Pandya has bowled a total of 12 overs, in which he has given 65 runs at an average of 5.41. In these 12 overs, Hardik did not allow a single run to be scored in 44 balls. Bumrah has given only 45 runs in 11 overs at an economy rate of 4.09. No runs were scored on 42 of his 66 balls.

But these figures do not mean that Hardik has been more effective or that Bumrah’s bowling does not have that edge. On the contrary, these figures show that Bumrah’s fast bowling has also received good support from Hardik. There were questions about his form, but he performed well.
