There is a misconception that T20 cricket is only about the batters. We see the fours and sixes as the medium to drive the game forward. But that's not true. Bowlers play an equally important role in this form of cricket. Their quota of 4 overs is crucial and plays an important role in a team's success.

Although these are just 24 balls, but a bowler can change the game in just one spell. When T20 cricket was born, it was estimated that bowlers will have no role and they will be just like bowling machines. But as the game has developed, bowlers have evolved their skills further in order to be successful.

Fast bowlers have developed different forms of slower balls along with the yorkers while spinners have added extra variations in their armoury. Mystery spinners have come into the mix a lot more now and they are in demand in T20 teams across the world. Batters can win you matches but bowlers can win you tournaments.

Today, we will have a look at the 5 bowlers you should pick in your Gamesys11 Fantasy Cricket Team. for IPL 2024. You can make your team by downloading the Gamesys11 app from Google Play Store or iOS app store.
