Who Has the Most Wickets in WTC 2021-23 and All Time

The World Test Championship is not only a test of batter skills, but it is also a test of bowler skills. Every batter wants to score the most runs in WTC, and every bowler wants to take the most wickets.

Taking the most wickets in the World Test Championship is a very difficult task. It requires a lot of consistent effort with excellent line and length. Some bowlers take wickets in the early overs, while others take wickets with the Old ball with reverse swing.

Therefore, fast bowlers have an extraordinary benefit of a new ball in test cricket, where they can seam and swing the ball to take early wickets. On the other hand, spin bowlers benefit in the middle of the over when they start to spin the bowl with a slightly old ball.
But unless all the bowling conditions are met, all these bowling abilities are useless. Some of the most important bowling conditions that support any test bowler are the weather, wind in the air, and pitch condition.

Any fast bowler who wants to take wickets with the new ball will need moisture and win in the air. In the same way, any spin bowler who wants to take a wicket in a test match will need an old pitch for a spin. Now, we will look at the most wicket-takers in World Test Championship:
