The record for the most wickets taken in a one-day international match is held by the great Indian spinner Anil Kumble. In 334 One-Day International matches for India, he has taken 269 wickets.
In the early days of cricket, batsmen were the most important players. Since then, however, bowlers have become more important. Without the bowlers’ help, India would not have won as many games as it did. A few months ago, India beat England by 10 wickets. This was mostly because of how well Jasprit Bumrah bowled. England’s innings ended when they were bowled out for 110 runs, which India reached in 18.4 overs with the help of their pacer. Who, then, has taken the most wickets for India in one-day internationals and been the most successful overall? What does it mean? Let’s take a closer look based on latest of cricket news:
- Anil Kumble – 263 wickets –
Anil Kumble has been a big part of India’s success in one-day internationals. In his career, he has taken 334 wickets, which is a big part of why India has done well. The spinner has taken the third-most wickets in the history of international cricket, behind Muttiah Muralitharan and Shane Warne. He also has taken the most wickets in One-Day International (ODI) cricket for India, with 619. He is the third most successful cricket player in the world’s history.
Kumble’s first one-day international (ODI) match was against Sri Lanka in April, 1990. He played in a total of 269 ODIs throughout his career. Also, in 1996, he took 61 wickets in One-Day Internationals, which was a record for India at the time.
In the final of the Hero Cup in Kolkata, Kumble bowled out the West Indies for only 58 runs, which was his best performance in the 50-over format. This was the best hour of Kumble’s life. Kumble’s effort, which led to the taking of six wickets, let India keep their total of 225 and only let 12 runs be scored against them. The leg spinner has had a long career in One-Day Internationals, and he has kept an impressive economy rate of 4.30 the whole time.
In November 2008, Kumble said that he would no longer play international cricket for India. He had been playing the sport for more than eighteen years. In 2005, he was given the Padma Shri, which is the fourth-highest civilian honor in India.
- Javagal Srinath – 315 wickets –
Javagal Srinath is second in terms of how many wickets he has taken for India in One-Day Internationals. Since his first 50-over One-Day International (ODI) match against Pakistan in October 1991, the fast bowler has taken 315 wickets in 229 matches. Srinath was named Indian cricketer of the year in the same year he played his first international game. He had taken 16 wickets in tests and 20 wickets in one-day internationals.
Reports say that Srinath planned to stop playing in 2002, but Sourav Ganguly convinced him to keep going until the 2003 World Cup. He took the most wickets for India at the end of the tournament, which was a very impressive feat.
Srinath has competed in bowling competitions at most World Cups for India (1992, 1996, 1999, and 2003). He is now tied with Zaheer Khan as India’s player who has taken the most wickets in ICC competitions. Khan took 44 wickets between the World Cups of 2003, 2007, and 2011.
Srinath is the first Indian fast bowler to get more than 300 wickets in a 50-over match. He did this by getting more than 300 wickets at the end. After the 2003 Cricket World Cup, which was held in South Africa, he decided to stop playing for other countries. In 1999, he was given India’s Arjuna Award, which is generally thought to be the country’s highest honor.
- Ajit Agarkar – 288 wickets –
Ajit Agarkar came in third place on the list. He has played in 191 one-day internationals and has taken 288 wickets. In 1998, Agarkar played in his first One-Day International (ODI) match. He ended up with the most wickets. Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa were the first teams he played against.
Agarkar broke the record for the shortest amount of time it took to get 50 ODI wickets by doing it in 23 games, which is now the new standard. Even though Ajantha Mendis holds the record right now, Agarkar is the Indian player who got to 50 wickets the fastest. When he played against Australia at the MCG in January 2004, he had the best One-Day International (ODI) figures of any foreign bowler in Australia by taking 6 for 42. Both with the bat and with the ball, Agarkar occasionally helped the team do well. His score of 95 against the West Indies is still the highest of his career, and he still holds the record for the fastest fifty by an Indian in one-day internationals with 21 balls against Zimbabwe. In 2013, Agarkar said that he was giving up playing competitive cricket.
- Zaheer Khan – 269 wickets –
Zaheer Khan is India’s second-best wicket-taker overall and the fourth-best pacer in terms of total wickets. He bowls with his left arm.
Since his first game, which was against Kenya in 2000, he has played 194 games and taken 269 wickets. Also, Zaheer’s 21 wickets were a major reason why India won the ICC Cricket World Cup in 2011. He was also the second Indian to get 250 ODI wickets in the second-fastest time. This success was the icing on the cake. Before he got his 250th wicket, he had to play a total of 163 innings.
On October 15, 2015, Zaheer said that he would be giving up both first-class cricket and international cricket. He will still play in the Indian Premier League, though. He said this after the 2017 Indian Premier League season was over. He wouldn’t play cricket anymore.
- Harbhajan Singh – 265 wickets –
Harbhajan Singh, who is thought to be one of the best off-spinners in India, had the fifth-most wickets for India in 50-over One-Day Internationals when he finished his career. From 1998 to 2017, he took 265 wickets, which is a lot for a cricket player.
Singh was an important part of India’s World Cup-winning team in 2011. After the 2011 World Cup, he got sick a lot and wasn’t able to play, so he didn’t make the team that went to the tournament in 2015.
