Cricket records: Most 5 Wickets in an ODI Match
It’s a dream for every bowler to achieve the record of most 5 wickets in an ODI match but it requires a lot of hard work and effort to get this achievement. The person who is on top of the list of this dream achievement is Waqar Younis from Pakistan. He got 5 wickets in 13 matches which is really outstanding. He played 262 matches overall. Two more players from Pakistan are covering the list. M Muralitharan is the second player who got 5 wickets in 10 matches. He played 334 matches. Bowlers like B Lee, Mcgrath, and Klusener are also on the list. Let’s take a look at the list to see if your favorite bowler made it on the list or not.
Most five-wickets in an innings
It is clear from this table that most of the one day international bowlers who are among the top wicket takers in their career have made it to this table. In One Day International Cricket Muralitharan from Srilankan Cricket Team is most successful bowler over all, followed by Wasim Akram and Waqar younis from Pakistan and Chaminda Vaas from Srilanka.
In this list one can see the best bowlers of all time. Wasim Akram is easily among the best bowler ever who have played the game of Cricket. Waqar Younis had a deadly pace which is still difficult to find. Very few have shown pace comparable to Brett Lee. Perfection of Glenn McGrath cannot be challenged. Overall, this list is full of highly talented bowlers who are also leading wicket takers in the history of cricket. Muralitharan for example lead the the chart with maximum international wickets. No wonder these bowlers took most 5 wickets in ODI matches.
