Top-10 Best debut figures for a bowler in T20 format

Dipayan Saha / 07 July 2015

Proteas leg spinner Eddie Leie stole the show in South Africa’s 31-run victory over hosts Bangladesh in the 2nd T20 match in Mirpur. Leie figures 3-16 stands the best amongst the South African debut bowlers in T20. He along with his spinning partner Aaron Phangiso took 6 wickets amongst themselves and sinked the Bangladesh batting.

He was able to exploit turn and bounce from the pitch and kept the Bangladeshi batsmen at bay which earned him the man of the match award.
Good luck to Eddie Leie for his future endeavours with the South African squad.
