Former Australian bowler picked KL Rahul’s Punjab Kings (PBKS) teammate Mohammed Shami to be the leading wicket-taker in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 considering his good form in the last few months. Lee stated:

I have KL Rahul down as the top run-scorer in the tournament and Mohammed Shami to be the leading wicket-taker, purely going on the last few months.”

So if they deliver and India have one of the leading run-scorers and wicket-takers, it’s a good start,” Lee wrote in his column for International Cricket Council.

Notably, Opener KL Rahul has done a brilliant job with the bat in the last few T20 games. In two warm-up games, he returned with the score of 51 and 39. Overall in the last 5 matches, Rahul has smashed 3 fifties with his lowest score being 39. Talking about Shami he has picked 9 wickets in the last 5 T20 games.
