Former South Africa pacer Dale Steyn recently tweeted that “Batters wow the crowd, bowlers win you games”. Although this might not be always true; but there are many games when bowlers won the games for their teams with their spectacular bowling figures.
In the sport of cricket, captaincy is the role that is dominated by batsmen. However, there are also few bowlers who have led the sides effectively in many games. Moreover, there are also a few bowlers who executed fabulous match-winning bowling spells while leading a team in a T20I game. Here we talk about 5 players with the best bowling figures in T20Is as a captain.
5. Shakib Al Hasan- 5/20
Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan takes the 5th spot in this list. The left-arm spinner led Bangladesh in a T20I game against West Indies in 2018. Hasan scalped a 5-wicket haul in the match and returned with bowling figures of 5/20.
