fastest 50 wickets in ODI. Ajantha Mendis

Wicket takers have always been a game changer in cricket. Today we will discuss about top five bowlers to fastest 50 wickets in ODI.

In cricket most of the time we talk about batsmen and their records and forget bowlers who have been equally responsible for their team’s win in any format. We have number of example when a bowler changed the result of the game.

Shane Warne spells of semi final and final of 1999 World Cup was a fine example of it and who else can forget the magical super over of kagiso Rabada in IPL when he defended only 10 runs in front of Kolkata Knight Riders’s Russel.

We tend to remember runs over wickets and knocks above spells. The game of cricket has been changed a lot, with new rules it seems that it has become batsmen game but we have to agree with the fact that bowlers also change the results of the game.

In this article we will not talk about fastest half century, most ODI runs and most centuries but we will talk about Fastest 50 Wickets in ODI. 50 wickets in less than 30 ODI matches is something makes a bowler special. Ajantha Mendis is only a spinner to the best 5 bowlers to fastest 50 wickets in ODI.

Generally bowlers are classified into two categories fast and spin bowlers. But then we can describe bowlers as a wicket takers and containers. Containers are those who make pressure on batsman with their dot balls. Jasprit Bumrah is one of the best example of it.
