Best bowling career economy rates in ICC Men’s T20 World Cup

In cricket, especially the fast-paced T20 format, runs come thick and fast. So, bowlers who can restrict the flow of runs are like gold. But how do we measure how well a bowler does this? Here’s where economy rate comes in.


Economy rate tells you how many runs a bowler concedes on average per over. The lower the number, the better! Let’s look at some bowlers who have aced this art in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, based on the information provided.


Faf du Plessis (South Africa)

Faf du Plessis, the former South African captain, takes the crown for the most economical bowling spell in T20 World Cup history (with the info given).  Imagine this: du Plessis bowls a whole over (which is 6 balls) and only gives away 3 runs! That’s an incredible economy rate of just 3.00. To put this in perspective, the average batsman scores more than that in a single hit! Talk about making life difficult for the batters.


Praveen Kumar (India)

Praveenkumar Sakat Singh, the former Indian Right arm Medium stands second in the list. With an economy rate of 4.25, he concedes an average of 8.25 runs per over. He just gave 17 runs in 24 balls, an that too while grabbing 2 wickets!


Karl Birkenstock (Namibia)

Rounding out the list is Karl Birkenstock from Namibia.  His economy rate of 4.50 is another great showing. Bowling just 12 balls and giving away only 9 runs demonstrates his ability to control the flow of runs. It’s important to note that this economy rate is based on a smaller sample size (fewer balls bowled) compared to du Plessis and Patel, but it’s still a sign of his tight bowling.


These are just a few examples, and there are many other bowlers who have delivered economical spells in the T20 World Cup.  So, next time you watch a T20 match, keep an eye on the economy rate to see who’s making it tough for the batters to score!
