ODI Cricket World Cup All-Time Bowling Records

In cricket, scoring a century is one of the greatest accomplishments for a batsman; similarly, taking five wickets is an accomplishment for a bowler, but achieving a hat-trick is every bowler’s ultimate goal. When a bowler dismisses three batsmen with three consecutive deliveries, he receives a hat-trick. Achieving this feat in a prestigious tournament such as the ODI World Cup is icing on the cake.

Obtaining a hat-trick is the most difficult challenge for a bowler, as all three deliveries must hit the target. Only eleven bowlers have achieved hat-tricks in the ODI World Cup.

Chetan Sharma, a former Indian pacer, is the first bowler to take a hat-trick in an ODI World Cup. Chetan dismissed Ken Rutherford, Ian Smith, and Ewen Chatfield in succession during the 1987 World Cup match against New Zealand, which was the 24th match of the tournament.

In the 1999 World Cup match against Zimbabwe, legendary Pakistani spinner Saqlain Mushtaq achieved the second hat-trick of the ODI World Cup, 12 years after the first one. Mushtaq dismissed Henry Olonga, Adam Huckle, and Pommie Mbangwa in the first three deliveries of his sixth over, thereby contributing to his team’s 148-run victory.

Lasith Malinga, a former legendary Sri Lankan bowler, is the only bowler in ODI World Cup history to have achieved two hat-tricks. In the 2007 edition against South Africa, he dismissed Shaun Pollock, Andrew Hall, Jacques Kallis, and Makhaya Ntini in four consecutive deliveries.

During his second hat-trick of the 2011 ODI World Cup, he dismissed Tanmay Mishra, Peter Ongondo, and Shem Ngoche in a match against Kenya in which he also took Tanmay Mishra’s wicket. Nevertheless, it will be fascinating to see which bowler will shine in the impending World Cup and join the legendary list of bowlers who have taken a hat-trick in the World Cup. These statistics will be considered by fantasy cricket players when constructing their ODI Cricket World Cup squads.

Let’s examine some all-time bowling milestones in ODI World Cup History
