It appears from above that 12 out of the 15 top performing bowlers are pacers bowling at mid-130 to 150 kmph. Only three Chahal, Shakib and Imran Tahir are spinners.

This gives an indication that teams having express pace bowlers like Australia, New Zealand, England fared well. Off Course India and Bangladesh having quality all round bowling strength and top performing batsmen are also in the reckoning.
