2022 T20 World Cup Top Bowler Prediction

It is not a surprise to see two Sri Lankan bowlers featuring at the top of the list with the highest betting odds. Wanindu Hasaranga finished as the top wicket-taker during the 2021 T20 World Cup and is once again the betting favorite as of this writing to win the Golden Ball for the second consecutive time.

The last bowler to win back-to-back Golden Ball awards was Pakistan’s Umar Gul who won the award during the 2007 and 2009 T20 World Cups.

Wanindu Hasaranga

Hasaranga has quickly established himself to be a dangerous T20 bowler with his leg spin. Hasaranga will play his 50th T20 game for Sri Lanka during this World Cup and will be their top spin bowler during the tournament.

He has taken 80 wickets for Sri Lanka at a strike rate of 14.85 and has an impressive economy rate of 6.80. His best figures in T20 cricket is 4/9. Hasaranga has T20 World Cup betting odds of 3.50 on Betway for the top bowler market.

Maheesh Theekshana

This is the second Sri Lankan bowler that the bookmakers think will finish strong in the tournament. While Hasaranga bowls leg breaks, Theekshana bowls off-breaks for the Lankans and has good control and a lot of tricks up his sleeves.

Theekshana is still finding his feet in T20 cricket as he has played just 29 games for his country. He has picked up 30 wickets so far with a strike rate of 23.73 and an economy rate of 6.46.

Sam Curran

Curran has a knack for picking up crucial wickets for England with his gentle pace and late swing. The 24-year-old has played 30 games for his country and has taken 33 wickets with an average of 22.84 and an economy rate of 7.80.

Curran is still looking to improve his T20 bowling and it will be up to his skipper Jos Butler to decide if he is going to let Curran bowl out his full quota of 4 overs during each game as Curran is not always used as a front-line bowler.

Bas de Leede

Most cricket fans will not be familiar with Bas de Leede as he plays for the Netherlands. de Leede is a batting all-rounder who bowls right-arm fast-medium.

The Australian pitches are more suited for his style of bowling and the Netherlands will depend on him to pick up lots of wickets. He has played 27 games and picked up 23 wickets at an average of 16.39 and an economy rate of 8.19.

Josh Hazelwood

The big Australian quick is currently ranked the number one T20 bowler in the world and is lethal at home. Hazelwood gets a lot of bounce with his height and with a new cherry in his hand.

He is also dangerous at death with his accurate yorkers and change of pace. Hazelwood has played 39 games for Australia taking 56 wickets at a strike rate of 20.07 and an economy rate of 7.66.

Arshdeep Singh

Arshdeep Singh is getting a chance to play for India as Jasprit Bumrah is injured. The left-arm fast bowler can blow hot and cold as he is still very inexperienced. He has only played 14 games for India and taken 22 wickets at an average of 18.54 and has an economy rate of 8.13.

If he bowls well for India, he is likely to retain his spot and play all games for India and increase his odds of finishing as the top wicket-taker.
