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

Similarly named Jeremy Gordon of Canada and Chris Jordan of England currently have the most expensive bowling analysis of an innings in T20 World Cup 2024. Both of them have conceded 44-44 runs.
