Cricket has progressed significantly in recent years. The sport, things have changed dramatically. Unlike in the past, players from international teams chance every year. In today's sports, only talent counts; if a player possesses both talent and skill, he will eventually find himself in the starting line-up. Cricket is also a sport where anything can happen from start to finish.It's not over until it's over in cricket. There is more risk in the T20 format than in any other form. In T20, runs are scored at a breakneck pace. Batters must be skilled to play in death overs, yet playing under pressure is a difficult task. In addition, several bowlers bowl well in Death Over Specialist Bowlers, which is a significant issue for batters. We've compiled a list of ten bowlers who excel at their craft, particularly in the death overs.

What Makes A Good Death Bowler?

This is the standard death bowling ball: full and straight. If you miss, I hit, is the mantra. Bowling is rugged because the margin for error is so tiny. Because the yorker is so tough to perfect, a truly skilled death bowler will use it to restrict the scoring and take wickets.

1. Dale Steyn

The best fast bowler in South African history and perhaps the best of all time. Dale Steyn has 439 test wickets at a bowling average of 22.95 in 93 test matches. His 42.3 percent strike rate is the best of any bowler with more than 200 wickets. His countryman Kagiso Rabada, on the other hand, is expected to overtake him in the future. Steyn was an expert at moving the new ball and then reversing it. He could bowl at speeds of up to 90 miles per hour when he wanted to. Except for India, assisted South Africa in winning test series in every country. He took two five-wicket hauls in India to help South Africa draw both series. This included his 7-51 in Nagpur – Steyn’s best bowling figures.

2. Kagiso Rabada

Kagiso Rabada stole the show at the 2014 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup, taking 14 wickets at an economy rate less than 3.50 and finishing as the tournament's second-highest wicket-taker.Rabada, one of South Africa's best fast bowlers in recent years, made his fifty-over international debut against Bangladesh in 2015. He had career-best figures of 6-16 in 8 overs, becoming only the second player after Taijul Islam to take a hat-trick in an ODI debut. Since then, the 24-year-old has taken 117 wickets in 75 matches at a speed of 140 km/h.Rabada's career-best numbers of 13-144 in a 2016 Test against England at Centurion were his career-best figures in the most extended version of the game. He has 197 wickets from 43 matches.

3. Makhaya Ntini

Makhaya Ntini, who his first match in 1998, created history in South African cricket when he became the country's first colored player. Ntini was South Africa's third-highest Test wicket-taker, with 390 wickets at an average of 28.82 in 101 five-day games between 1998 and 2009.Ntini, who has 18 Test five-fors and four ten-wicket hauls, became the third South African to reach 300 wickets in the most extended version of the game, following Shaun Pollock and Allan Donald.

4. Morne Morkel

After Shaun Pollock was past his peak, Morne Morkel, whose early career was observed by legendary Allan Donald, took over as South Africa's strike bowler. In 86 Tests, the 86-year-old veteran, who made his Test debut against India in 2006, took 300+ wickets at an average of 27.60. The 35-year-best old's numbers against New Zealand were 6-23 in Wellington in 2012. Morkel, South Africa's best wicket-taker at the 2015 ODI World Cup, has appeared in 117 One-Day Internationals since his debut in 2007 and has 188 wickets at an average of 25.32.

5. Allan Donald 

When South Africa re-entered the international stage after readmission, Allan Donald, the first South African bowler to take 300 test match wickets, was the poster boy. In 1998, he fought Mike Atherton in a match that would be remembered for years. He took 330 wickets in 72 tests, with a bowling average of 22.25. He was prolific all over the world, just like Steyn. Donald has a 16.12 average with the ball in India and a 19.33 average in Sri Lanka. His bowling contributed to South Africa's victories in both test series.

6. Jacques Kallis

Jacques Kallis, South Africa's most famous cricketer, is the only player to have scored over 10,000 runs and taken over 250 wickets in both formats. Before retiring in 2013, the medium-fast swing bowler, who made his Test debut against England in 1995, played 165 Tests and took 291 wickets at an average of 32.63.

7. Shaun Pollock

Despite averaging 32 with the bat, Shaun Pollock was also a prolific pitcher. A true all-rounder capable of playing in either discipline. Shaun Pollock took 421 wickets at a strike rate of 23.12 in 108 test matches. Because they complimented one other so well, Pollock and Donald established a great bowling partnership. He moved the new ball with precision, revealing nothing. With an economic rate of 2.40, he has the potential to bind batters and compel them to make mistakes.

8. Vernon Philander

Vernon Philander, one of the world's most underappreciated medium-pacers, beat the odds by capturing 50 wickets in seven Tests, the best record in over a century. He became the fastest South African to compete 100 Test wickets in 2013, doing it in his 19th match, while Dale Steyn required 20 games to reach the milestone. The 34-year-old has 224 doors at an average of 22.32 in 64 Tests over his career.

9. Chris Morris

Morris' performance in other leagues around the world is fantastic, even though we haven't seen him play for South Africa in many matches. His play in the Indian Premier League in 2019 and 2020 was so good that the Rajasthan Royals bought him for a record-breaking price for the IPL 2021.The Royals paid a hefty 16.25 crores for him. In 124 T20I matches, he has taken 196 wickets. He has also amassed over 7400 runs, including eight century and fourteen half-centuries. In T20Is, his best bowling figures are eight wickets for 44 runs.

10. Dwaine Pretorius

Dwaine Pretorius has been appointed as a death-bowling duty due to the success of the rest of South Africa's attack, which has forced them to be employed earlier in the innings. "Perhaps the circumstances of the games demanded that I bowl a couple of the last overs," he explained. We've been hitting early and our spin department has been fantastic. So Temba might be having trouble finding a spot for me to bowl in the middle because the other guys are bowling so brilliantly, leaving me with the finishing job."
