Today we bring you the bowlers with the best bowling figures in T20 World Cup 2010. Bowling is a craft that requires precision, practice, and dedication. Since the inception of cricket, bowlers have not really received their fair share of applause and appreciation which were due to them. It’s always been the batsman who has turned the most number of eyes in their favor. For a general cricket lover, who cares to ignore the specifics and statistics associated with the game, one who only watches the game for the love of it would definitely be finding the batsmen to be more attractive and magnetic.
One is awed when a certain Sachin Tendulkar hits the bowler straight down the ground presenting the full face of the bat, one is found gaping when a certain Brian Charles Lara hooked a bowler over deep mid-wicket and deposited the ball into the stands, one is awed when a certain Virat Kohli thumps his bat to the ground in authoritative fashion after hitting a beautiful cover drive. Never has a Shane Warne or a Wasim Akram or a Courtney Walsh been able to draw the same amount of awestruck appeal from the audience.
After the inception of T20 cricket, it was believed that the death knell for the bowlers had rung since it was considered to be a format heavily loaded in favor of the batsmen. However, bowlers as they always do surprise us with the innovation of their craft and a sense to deceive the batsman, each and every time he thinks he has got the bowler. Here are some of the best bowling performances from T20 World Cup 2010,the ones listed among the best bowling figures in T20 World Cup 2010-
5. Scott Styris (New Zealand)
A utility player for New Zealand, Styris had the ability to not only clear the fence but also pick up wickets at crucial junctures with his slow-medium pace bowling. Against Zimbabwe, he delivered one of the best spells of his career when he picked up 3 wickets in a span of 2 overs. Listed among the best bowling figures in T20 World Cup 2010.

4. Saeed Ajmal (Pakistan)
A master of his craft, Saeed Ajmal was truly one of the most difficult bowlers to pick from the hand. He had the ability to bowl a doosra or a googly simultaneously with a variety of changes in pace, which made it even more difficult for the batsman to gauge. Listed among the best bowling figures in T20 World Cup 2010.
A crafty bowler in his prime, Ajmal was a potent wicket-taker, a skill he displayed in the world cup as well with 11 wickets. South Africa was the victim of his doosra and deceptive bowling where he picked up 4 wickets in a spell.
3. Morne Morkel (South Africa)
Express Pace, Awkward Bounce, and a probing off stump line- qualities which made Morne Morkel a force to reckon with. His partnership with Dale Steyn was responsible for many memorable victories for South Africa over the years. Morkel, just a teenager then, had this uncanny ability to generate bounce and pace in even the most docile of pitches.
Afghanistan was the team that fell under his barrage of bouncers during the tournament. In his spell of 3 overs against them, he picked up 4 wickets conceding only 20 runs. South Africa was able to register a handsome victory in that match. Listed among the best bowling figures in T20 World Cup 2010.
2. Charl Langeveldt (South Africa)
Before Vernon Philander, there was one guy who would trouble the batsman with his seam movement and his immaculate ability to bowl a probing length all-day long. Charl Langeveldt in his prime was a brilliant exponent of slow reverse swing bowling with all the variations up his sleeves. He took 11 wickets for South Africa in the entire campaign in just 4 matches.
His best came against Pakistan, where he picked up 4 crucial wickets with Shahid Afridi and Mohammed Hafeez being his prized scalps. However, the South Africans, being the perennial chokers, succumbed to pressure as they had done prior to that on several occasions. Listed among the best bowling figures in T20 World Cup 2010.
1. Dirk Nannes (Australia)
This fiery left-arm bowler was one of the only select few cricketers to have represented two different countries during the tenure of his playing career. Although he started out for the Netherlands, he was quickly roped in by Australia due to his dual citizenship status. The Australian cricket board saw in him a fire and a desire to excel.
Nannes was extremely quick clocking 90-95 miles per hour on a consistent basis. During the T20 world cup of 2010, he was the star performer for Australia picking up 14 wickets in 7 matches. During a match against Bangladesh, he absolutely decimated their batting with a spell of 4 overs where he went for only 18 runs and picked up 4 crucial wickets for his team. Listed among the best bowling figures in T20 World Cup 2010.
