T20 World Cup 2024: Full List of Best Fast Bowlers for Super 8

Total eight teams in focus as we look at the complete fast bowlers list for all teams for Super 8 stage of T20 World Cup 2024. 

Ever since the T20 World Cup 2024 started, if there is one category of bowlers that has dominated the most, it is the fast bowlers. Be it Jasprit Bumrah from India, Fazalhaq Farooqi from Afghanistan, Anrich Nortje from South Africa, or Saurabh Nethravalkar from the United States of America, we have seen these bowlers come out as winners in the entire Group stage matches.

With matches from the Group Stage of T20 World Cup 2024 almost ending, the attention now shifts to the Super 8 stage where out of 20 teams, 8 Teams will be playing each other in two groups. As of June 16, seven teams have already qualified for the  Super 8 stage, and those are India, Australia, Afghanistan, USA, South Africa, West Indies, and England.

There is space for one more spot, but most probably it will be Bangladesh from Group D. Bangladesh have a favorable run-rate that will work in their favor. Even if Bangladesh loses their next match, which looks unlikely, Netherlands will have to win by a big margin of 50-60 runs, or chase the target in 14-15 overs. So, as we wait for the Super 8 stage, let’s look at the fast bowlers list of all teams for T20 World Cup 2024 as these bowlers will continue to play an important role going forward.

T20 World Cup 2024 Fast Bowlers List for Super 8 

West Indies Pacers List for T20 World Cup 2024

  1. Andre Russell
  2. Romario Shepherd
  3. Alzarri Joseph
  4. Obed McCoy
  5. Shamar Joseph 

Starting with West Indies, they have Alzarri Joseph and Andre Russell as their two key pacers. Romario Shephard shall also continue to play for West Indies in their first-choice playing 11. Whereas Shamar Joseph and Obed McCoy shall be the two key backups for West Indies. 

Bangladesh Pacers List for T20 World Cup 2024

  1. Soumya Sarkar
  2. Mustafizur Rahman
  3.  

The Bangladesh team has a fantastic trio of pacers in the form of Mustafizur Rahman, Tanzim Shakib, and Taskin Ahmed. Most likely we should see these pacers continuing in the Super 8 as well. So, Shoriful Islam and Soumya Sarkar shall continue to be the key backup pacers for Bangladesh. 

India Pacers List for T20 World Cup 2024

  1. Hardik Pandya 
  2. Shivam Dube
  3. Arshdeep Singh
  4. Jasprit Bumrah
  5. Mohammed Siraj

Team India played all five pacers in the Super 8 stage. However, don’t expect India to continue with all these pacers for the Super 8 stage. With pitches assisting spin more, expect India to play Kuldeep Yadav in place of Mohammed Siraj. Whereas Dube may most-likely be used as a pure batter to tackle spin. 

Afghanistan Pacers List for T20 World Cup 2024

  1. Azmatullah Omarzai
  2. Gulbadin Naib
  3. Karim Janat
  4. Fareed Ahmad Malik
  5. Fazalhaq Farooqi
  6. Naveen-ul-Haq

Afghanistan have seen some brilliant performances from their pacers so far. Fazalhaq Farooqi and Naveen Ul-Haq have been pretty impressive. In addition to these, Gulbadin Naib and Azmatullah Omerzai shall also play a key role in Super 8 matches. Expect Afghanistan to play all four pacers in their playing 11, but only 2 or 3 may continue to bowl. 

England Pacers List for T20 World Cup 2024

  1. Sam Curran
  2. Chris Jordan
  3. Jofra Archer
  4. Mark Wood
  5. Reece Topley

England were handled a lifeline by Australia by winning a close encounter against Scotland. However, that doesn’t mean the England team lacks quality. From the pacers’ standpoint, Jofra Archer, Mark Wood, and Reece Topley shall continue to lead the pace department, and all three are quality pacers. In addition, England have Chris Jordon and Sam Curran as key backup pacers. 

South Africa Pacers List for T20 World Cup 2024

  1. Marco Jansen
  2. Anrich Nortje
  3. Bjorn Fortuin
  4. Gerald Coetzee
  5. Kagiso Rabada
  6. Ottniel Baartman

Talking about South Africa, the team played the quartet of pacers in the Group stage in the form of Anrich Nortje, Marco Jansen, Ottniel Baartman, and Kagiso Rabada. But expect South Africa to drop one of the papers for a second spinner. Looking at the current performance, Kagiso Rabada could be the one to make way, but don’t be surprised if Baartman gets dropped.   

Australia Pacers List for T20 World Cup 2024

  1. Cameron Green
  2. Marcus Stoinis
  3. Mitchell Marsh
  4. Josh Hazlewood
  5. Mitchell Starc
  6. Nathan Ellis
  7. Pat Cummins

Australia have seven pacers on their side, and if all are fit, the two pace all-rounders, Marsh and Stoinis, and three pacers, Cummins, Hazlewood, and Starc shall continue to lead the fast bowling department for Australia. With these five pacers already there, Nathan Ellis and Cameron Green shall be the key backups.   

United States of America List T20 WC 2024

  1. Corey Anderson
  2. Shadley Van Schalkwyk
  3. Ali Khan
  4. Jessy Singh
  5. Saurabh Nethralvakar

For USA, Saurabh Nethravalkar, Ali Khan, and Corey Anderson shall play a key role in the Super 8 stage from a fast bowling perspective. So, the likes of Jessy Singh and Shadley shall be the key backup pacers.
