Top 5 Best bowling spell in T20 World Cup

T20 World Cup 2024 has started and in its 5th match, Afghanistan's fast bowler Fazalhaq Farooqi made a record by bowling lethally against Uganda. Farooqi not only destroyed the Ugandan batting order but also got his name recorded in the pages of history. Farooqi took 5 wickets for 9 runs in his 4 overs, due to which the Ugandan team collapsed for 58 runs while chasing the target of 184 runs at the Providence Stadium in Guyana.

Afghanistan had scored 183 runs thanks to the 154-run opening partnership of Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Ibrahim Zadran. Farooqi wreaked havoc in the very first over and took 2 wickets on consecutive balls. This disturbed the rhythm of Uganda's innings. Uganda lost wickets at regular intervals. Naveen-ul-Haq took 2 wickets and Mujeeb-ur-Rahman took 1 wicket. Farooqui then came back and took 3 wickets in his third over.
