Want to be a professional cricketer?
India lifted the trophy of the ICC T20 World Cup 2007 after beating arch-rivals Pakistan in the sensational grand-finale. As it was the inaugural edition of the tournament, there were fewer expectations from the MS Dhoni-led team as the senior players had snubbed the tournament. Dhoni led the young Indian team with the likes of Rohit Sharma, Yuvraj Singh and Sreesanth and came out as victorious.
The ICC T20 World Cup 2007 was hosted by South Africa and 12 teams participated in it. Several memorable knocks were played and new records were formed during the tournament.
Here, in this article, we have mentioned the five bowlers who registered five best bowling figures in the ICC T20 World Cup 2007.
1. Mark Gillespie:
Mark Gillespie burst into the international cricket in 2006 for New Zealand after having an impressive domestic season for Wellington. Although he had a short international career, he gave impressive performances when asked to deliver. His best was seen in the ICC T20 World Cup 2007 against Kenya in the group stage match.
He demolished Kenya with his right-arm quick bowling as he picked four wickets in three overs and leaked just seven runs. He registered an amazing economy of 2.5 in that match.
However, opportunities fell short for Gillespie to cement his place in New Zealand. With the advent of injuries, he lost his spot and last played for them in 2012.
