ICC CWC 2023: It is said that the batsman wins the match but the bowler wins the tournament. This saying has been justified so far by the Indian bowling unit in the current Cricket World Cup (ICC Cricket World Cup 2023). And now this performance needs to be repeated in the India-Australia final match (IND vs AUS final match) so that the saying becomes completely true.
Let us tell you that this title clash will take place on Sunday, 19th November in Ahmedabad (Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad). In the current tournament, the Indian cricket team has not faced defeat in even a single match. Along with the team’s batsmen, the bowlers also performed brilliantly. Four Indian bowlers have taken 15 and more wickets. This has happened only for the second time in the World Cup.
4 Indian bowlers took 15 wickets
Let us tell you that in the tournament, Indian fast bowler Mohammed Shami has become a threat to the opposition batsmen. He is the bowler taking the most wickets in the current tournament. He has taken maximum 23 wickets in just six matches. He was not a part of India’s playing eleven in the initial matches. After the injury of Hardik Pandya, he got a chance in the team and he proved himself. Indian fast bowling leader Jasprit Bumrah has taken 18 wickets in 10 matches, orthodox spinner Ravindra Jadeja has taken 16 wickets in 10 matches and Chinaman Kuldeep Yadav has taken 15 wickets in 10 matches.
This happened for the second time in the history of ODI World Cup
It is noteworthy that this is the second time in the history of the ODI World Cup that four bowlers of a team have taken 15 or more wickets. Glenn McGrath took the maximum 26 wickets for Australia in the 2007 World Cup. Apart from them, Shaun Tait hit 23, Brad Hogg took 21 and Nathan Bracken hit 16. In the current World Cup, Mohammed Siraj has taken 13 wickets in 10 matches. If he takes two wickets in the final, it will be the first time in the World Cup that five bowlers of a team have taken 15 or more wickets.
