4. Umesh Yadav (India)
True, Yadav has a wicket more than Shami, but he also played a match more. Notwithstanding those factors, Yadav used the short ball to good effect and was well above the 140 kmph mark, occasionally touching 150 too. His economy took a beating in the semi final, but he picked up four crucial wickets. Along with Shami, he has been instrumental in making the world step up and notice India’s pacers.
