The leading wicket-taker in a tournament like Big Bash League is a highly attributed position as the tournament is primarily tagged for its batting-friendly conditions. With batters taking most of the limelight in the tourney, bowlers win teams games. Therefore, having a bowler who is too good and accurate with his deliveries is a crucial asset for any side, especially in the shorter formats.
