2. Trent Boult
Trent Boult proved out to be New Zealand’s best bowler in ICC T20 World Cup 2021. Once again, the left-arm seamer lived up to all the expectations as he took his team to the final of the tournament. He was dangerous when there was swing early on but also ensured he didn’t prove ineffective when there isn’t enough movement in the air.
Boult used cutters, bouncers, and yorkers brilliantly and kept the batsmen guessing. He was outstanding on the day of the final. He was, in fact, the only bower for New Zealand who had a great outing with the ball.
Boult picked two crucial wickets of Finch and Warner but his effort wasn’t enough to win the game for the side. Boult finished the tournament with 13 wickets in 7 matches at an average of 13.31.
3. Anrich Nortje
Anrich Nortje was the standout bowler for South Africa in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. He troubled the batsmen with his fiery pace and bounce. Having said that, it wasn’t just limited to that. He used the slower balls quite often and made sure he didn’t bowl the predictable lengths.
There wasn’t a single occasion when Nortje had a bad outing with the ball. He picked at least one wicket in each of his six games and gave runs at less than 6 an over. Anrich Nortje finished with 9 wickets in 6 matches at an average of 11.55.
