In one-day international cricket, a bowler can only bowl a maximum of 10 overs in each match. As there are more overs in an ODI contest than in a T20 match, bowlers are more likely to take up more wickets. Many bowlers in the history of ODI cricket have successfully bagged a large number of wickets over their careers. So far in ODIs, Wasim Akram, Muttiah Muralitharan, and Waqar Younis are the top-three wicket-takers. Now if you want to play fantasy cricket in Bangladesh, then the performance of a bowler also matters a lot. We have seen several batsmen hit over 10,000 runs in ODIs, but it is still a bowler who makes the match exciting by totally turning it around.
Let us take a glance at the top 5 bowlers who hold the record of having the most wickets in the history of ODI.
Muralitharan is known to be the highest wicket-taker in ODI cricket history, much like he is in test cricket. From 1993 to 2011, he played ODI cricket for Sri Lanka. He was one of the most difficult bowlers to beat. Murali has bagged 534 wickets in 350 One-Day Internationals for his country. He collected 10 fifers with an outstanding average of 23.08. Muttiah was also a member of the Sri Lankan team that won the World Cup in 1996.
Saqlain Mushtaq was a renowned former Pakistani cricketer. He is recognised as one of the greatest bowlers the world has ever seen. Mushtaq made his international debut in 1995 and went on to play in 169 One-Day Internationals, taking 288 wickets. If we talk about one-day internationals, he has six five-wicket hauls, and his best bowling figures are five wickets for 20 runs. In 2004, Mushtaq announced his retirement from cricket. Mushtaq has been a coach for the England national team since 2016. Saqlain has set several records in his entire cricket career.
All-time greatest left-arm fast bowler Wasim Akram has set the record for the second-most ODI wicket-taker. He represented Pakistan in ODI cricket for 19 years (1984-2003). His unplayable swing balls were legendary. Until his final day on the pitch, Akram posed issues for the best players in the world. In the 1992 World Cup, the King of Swing took the most wickets and helped Pakistan win their first-ever World Cup. Wasim Akram holds the record for the most four-wicket hauls in one-day international cricket.
Daniel Vettori is a former New Zealand cricketer and currently serving as the coach for the New Zealand cricket team. Vettori is a left-arm spinner who has successfully bagged 305 wickets in 295 One-Day Internationals. Apart from the wickets, he has also made more than 2200 runs. He has two five-wicket hauls to his credit, along with a best of 5 wickets for just 7 runs. In the 1998 Commonwealth Games, he also won a bronze medal. From 2007 to 2011, Vettori led the New Zealand squad as their captain. He is also one of the few players in test cricket history to have taken over 300 wickets and scored over 3000 runs.
Glenn McGrath is that type of a pacer that clearly demonstrates he was one of the greatest fast bowlers of all time, and his swing was also incredible to watch. Glenn took 549 test wickets and 381 ODI wickets during his career. Apart from that, he also took 5 wickets in T20Is, which could have been more if the format had arrived when he was at his peak.
