ICC Cricket World Cup Highest Wicket-Takers, Highest Run-Scorers After Ind-Pak WC Match


After a commanding victory over their rivals-Pakistan in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023, the Indian cricket team secured their third consecutive win in as many games, positioning them at the top of the league table. Indian players also made their mark in the rankings for the highest run-scorers and wicket-takers in the tournament.

Jasprit Bumrah, India’s star fast bowler, ascended to the top of the wicket-taking charts by claiming two wickets in seven overs, bringing his tally to eight wickets in the tournament. Bumrah’s impressive economy rate and fewer overs bowled distinguished him from competitors like New Zealand’s Mitchell Santner and Matt Henry, who also had eight wickets.

India’s spin duo of Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav made their presence felt in the rankings by each taking two wickets against Pakistan.

Today, Afghanistan is set to face England at Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Stadium, and all eyes would be on Reece Topley as he would be eager to make an impact and climb the wicket-taking charts.

Although Mohammad Rizwan secured the top spot in the run-scoring charts, despite missing out on a half-century against India, the standout performance was Rohit Sharma’s surge to the third position. Rohit continued his exceptional form by smashing 86 runs from 63 deliveries, dismantling the Pakistan bowling attack. Virat Kohli, while not having an ideal outing, still maintained his presence in the top 10 run-scorers, sitting at the ninth spot. Rohit aims to replicate his outstanding performance from the 2019 World Cup and continue his impressive run in the tournament, with the goal of leading the host team to their third ODI World Cup victory since 2011.
