10 Best Bowling Figures in ODI – Most Wickets in World Cup

Cricket fans have enjoyed several times the best performances by the bowlers who turned a cricket match into a one-sided contest between both. In a One Day International between Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe in 2011, Chaminda Vaas recorded the Best Bowling Figures in ODI With 8 – 3 – 19 – 8 when he picked up eight wickets in eight overs by with three maiden overs and just conceded 19 runs in his in an incomplete bowling spell.

Cricket history recorded the best bowling figures by the name of Chaminda Vaas (Sri Lanka), Shahid Afridi (Pakistan), Glenn McGrath (Australia), Rashid Khan (Afghanistan) and Andy Bichel (Australia). All these cricket stars have done something great for their country. A number of great bowlers from different countries failed to take hat-tricks in their entire career. Although they got the massive potential of taking breakthroughs in early overs.

In the most recent Cricket World Cup 2019, many bowlers took two consecutive wickets but failed to mark hat-trick. New Zealand Trent Boult and Indian striking bowler Mohammad Shami took a hat-trick in the world cup. Few bowlers took five wickets-haul, But I can’t count them in top-five best bowling figures. A lot of things going positive for renowned bowlers but they haven’t taken five-wickets haul.
