Amongst all formats of cricket, white-ball cricket is the most viewed format of cricket. T20 cricket is the most ruthless format of cricket, where the bowlers get smashed in every over of the game. That's why T20 cricket is considered to be the nightmare of bowlers. But some bowlers did get a glimmer of hope and proved themselves in their debut T20 match.

1. Elias Sunny (5/13)

Elias Sunny is a former left-arm off-spin bowler from Bangladesh. Unfortunately, this fantastic bowler did not get as many chances to prove himself on the international stage. But only some people know he has the best debut bowling figures in T20 cricket. In the 1st T20 against Ireland in 2012, Elias Sunny played his 1st T20 match. In the game, Bangladesh batted first and scored 190 runs. In response, Ireland could only score 119 runs as Elias Sunny took five wickets by giving only 13 runs in his debut match. Due to Sunny Elias's fantastic bowling performance, Bangladesh won the game by 71 runs.

2. Barinder Sran (4/10)

Barinder Sran is one of the unluckiest cricketers India has ever seen, as despite being a good fast-bowler, he got to play only two T20 international matches. On the 2015 India tour of Zimbabwe, Barinder Sran made his T20 debut against Zimbabwe in the 2nd T20 match. Zimbabwe won the toss and decided to bat first. But that day, no Zimbabwe batter could play Barinder Sran. In that match, Barinder Sran took four crucial wickets by giving only ten runs in four overs. India quickly chased the target. Barinder Sran won the Man of the Match award for his exceptional bowling performance.

3. Ajantha Mendis (4/15)

There was a time when every top batter in the world used to fear Ajantha Mendis. At that time, very few batsmen were able to play him. Ajantha Mendis's records across all game formats prove he is among the finest spinners in Sri Lankan cricket history. In 2008, Ajantha Mendis made his debut against Zimbabwe. Sri Lanka won the toss and decided to bowl first. Despite playing the first match, Ajantha Mendis took the most wickets among all the bowlers in that match. Due to his fantastic bowling, Zimbabwe could only score 106 runs, and Sri Lanka easily won.

4. Devendra Bishoo (4/17)

Devendra Bishoo is a former leg-spinner of West Indies. Despite having one of the best debuts, this talented Player could only play 7 T20 international matches. Devendra Bishoo made his T20 international debut against Pakistan in 2011. West Indies won the toss and decided to bat first, scoring 150 runs. The target was reasonably achievable for Pakistan's team. But Devendra Bishoo took Pakistan's team's four most essential wickets and snatched victory from their hands. As a result, West Indies won the match by seven runs, and Devendra Bishoo got the Player of the Match award.

5. Kaushalya Weeraratne (4/19)

He took the four wickets by giving only 19 runs in four overs with an economy of only 4.75. Though Pakistan won the match, Kaushalya Weeraratne proved himself in his debut match.

6. Pragyan Ojha (4/21)

Pragyan Ojha is a former left-arm spinner from India. Like Barinder Sran, Pragyan Ojha is also one of the unluckiest cricketers in India.
