Gordon and Jordan… the most expensive bowlers of T20 World Cup 2024, a wonderful coincidence between the two, age is also above 35

New Delhi. The desire of cricket lovers to see a ‘rain’ of fours and sixes in the T20 World Cup 2024 has not been fulfilled yet. Talking about the bowlers, the tournament has proved to be relaxing for them so far. In T20 International matches, it is common for a bowler to be ‘thrashed’ and more than 50 runs scored against him, but this has not been seen in this World Cup as of now. In most of the matches played on the slow and bowler-friendly pitches of West Indies and America, the batsmen have been seen struggling. So far, only one match has seen a score of more than 200 runs.

The dominance of the bowling department can be understood from the fact that till 21 matches of the tournament (data till South Africa-Bangladesh match) no bowler has conceded 50 runs in an innings (Most runs conceded in an innings). Jeremy Gordon of Canada and Chris Jordan of England, who have similar names, currently have the most expensive bowling analysis of an innings in T20 World Cup 2024. Both of them have conceded 44-44 runs.
