The ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 has been a stage for incredible performances and unforgettable moments, and one player who has consistently shone in this tournament is Mohammed Shami from team India. With 14 wickets to his name, he stands at the sixth position in the list of top wicket-takers. What makes his performance even more remarkable is his incredible average of just 6 runs per wicket, coupled with a stellar bowling figure of 5/18, achieved in a mesmerising display against Sri Lanka on November 2.
Mohammed Shami’s performance in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 has been nothing short of spectacular. His average of 6 runs per wicket showcases his ability to consistently break through the opponent’s defenses. He has not only taken wickets but has done so with an exceptional economy rate of 4, which puts immense pressure on the batsmen. Shami’s strike rate of 9 further emphasizes his aggressive approach, making him a formidable force on the field.
While Mohammed Shami has garnered the limelight, his teammate, Jasprit Bumrah, is not far behind. Standing tall at the fifth spot in the list of top wicket-takers, Bumrah has been instrumental in India’s success in the World Cup. His standout performance came against Sri Lanka, where he registered a sensational five-wicket haul that dismantled the Sri Lankan batting order for a mere 55 runs. Bumrah’s ability to swing the ball and extract movement off the pitch makes him a bowler to watch out for.
