Top 10 Women cricketers with most wickets in T20 internationals

The countdown for the 2020 Women’s World Cup (WC) has started, and all the teams have prepared to take on the challenge in the mega event. However, before the main show kicks off, teams will face each other in the warm-up games starting from February 15.

Just like any other International Cricket Council (ICC) tournament, the Australian team is favorite yet again. They have won the prestigious trophy four times, and since the showpiece event is happening in their soil, the probability of Aussies winning the title has increased much more.


Before the teams lock horns with each other in the upcoming WC, let’s have a look at ten most successful bowlers in the shortest format of the game.

West Indies spinner Anisa Mohammed is the leading wicket-taker in the T20Is. The off-break bowler has taken 118 wickets. Australian speedster Elyssa Perry is second on this list with 113 wickets to her name.


Poonam Yadav is the only Indian in the elite list. The leg-spinner has taken 85 wickets with 4/19 being her best.

All-rounder Sophie Devine, who sits at seventh place in most runs in T20Is, holds ninth position in the top wicket-takers list.
