T20 is essentially a batsman’s game. But, every tournament throws up a few names of bowlers, who stand up to the challenge, and put up performances on par with the batsmen. This tournament has been no exception.

West Indies held their nerve to clinch a 2-wicket win over Pakistan at The Oval. The World T20 Champions had to battle it out against a strong Pakistani bowling attack which comprised of three left-arm quicks bowling over 140 kmph with disconcerting bounce along with the guile of offie Saeed Ajmal.
The opening game of the Indian Premier League (IPL) season six proved to be a disappointingly one-sided affair. A lot of credit for the same must go to a wonderful bowling performance from the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on their home ground, the Eden Gardens.
