The T20I format no doubt has been the most watched and loved format of the game all across the world in recent times. The immense twists and turns involved in a T20 match make it so much more interesting to watch and follow for cricket fans from all over the world. 

Even though the format is mostly ruled by the blistering batsmen who majorly help their side take control of the game with their big hits and high scores, it is majorly the bowling department which determines the fortune of the team.

The shortest format of the game has seen several incredible bowlers taking the cricketing world by storm with their wonderful skills and strategies to choke the opposition batsmen even in a format as short as this one. 

India too has been blessed with several quality bowlers who’ve proved their worth time and time again in the T20ai format for the men in blue. It’s time for us to take a look at the top three bowlers with the best economy rates in T20I history for India:-
