Pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah is one wicket away from becoming Indias leading wicket-taker in T20Is, and when Virat Kohli and Co. take on Sri Lanka in the third and final match on Friday, he can achieve the feat. Currently, he is tied with R Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal with 52 wickets to his name.
Bumrah has taken 44 matches to claim 52 wickets while Chahal took only 36 matches. Ashwin on the other hand, has 52 wickets in 46 matches.
Returning from injury, all eyes were on Bumrah in the second T20I in Indore which India won comfortably by seven wickets. The first T20I was called off without a ball being bowled due to rain and damp patches on the pitch.
