Leading wicket-takers in Champions Trophy 2017

The bowlers didn’t really find much assistance from the pitches in England nor were the overhead conditions conducive for bowling, during the Champions Trophy 2017. The ball rarely moved in the air or after pitching and the bowlers were quite reliant on false strokes from the batsmen for their wickets.

Hasan Ali is the bowler who finished Champions Trophy 2017 with most wickets/highest number of wickets (13).

*BBI is best bowling innings
*Average is the number of runs a bowler conceded per wicket. Multiplying the number of wickets with the bowling average will give you the total number of runs conceded in the whole tournament
