1) Mitchell Santner: 

The Kiwi left-arm spinner has taken 11 wickets in the 4 matches he has played so far at an average of 15.09 and a measly economy rate of 4.40. Santner also managed to take a fifer in the match against the Netherlands, while also showing off his batting skills.

3) Jasprit Bumrah: 

After a long injury lay-off, Bumrah has made a comeback like no other. Far from falling short of his exceptionally high standards, Bumrah looks at his best at the 2023 ODI World Cup.

The right-arm pacer has taken 10 wickets in the 4 matches so far, at an average of 13.4 and an economy rate of just 3.62.

5) Shaheen Afridi: 

Pakistan’s star left-arm pacer hasn’t been at his best in this edition of the World Cup. Nevertheless, Shaheen is among the tournament’s leading wicket-takers.

Shaheen Afridi has taken 9 wickets in the 4 matches so far at an average of 21.44 and an economy rate of 6.03.

6) Adam Zampa: 

The Australian leg-spinner has been one of the backbones of the Kangaroos in India, playing an instrumental role in their comeback at the ICC World Cup 2023.

Zampa has taken 9 wickets in the tour so far at an average of 24.77 and an economy rate of 6.19.

South African pacer Kagiso Rabada is once again among the wickets, taking 8 wickets in the 4 matches played so far at an average of 22.13 and an economy rate of 5.74.

8) Reece Topley: 

The left-arm pacer’s availability for the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 is still up in the air, but in the 4 matches he has played so far, Topley has impressed everyone. Topley has taken 8 wickets at an average of 22.18 and an economy rate of 6.61.

9) Marco Jansen: 

The left-arm pacer has been a consistent performer for the Proteas and, along with Kagiso Rabada, has helped solidify their bowling line-up. Jansen has taken 8 wickets at an average of 26 and an economy rate of 6.93.

10) Haris Rauf: 

One of the fastest bowlers in the tournament, the right-arm pacer has taken 8 wickets in 4 matches so far at an average of 29.12 and an economy rate of 7.06.
