Among the many modes of dismissals in cricket, the leg before wicket is one about which no batsman is ever happy and lingering doubt always remains at the back of his mind due to the very nature of the dismissal.
As is the case with other forms of the game, the LBW is also a pretty common mode of dismissal in ODI cricket and with the preponderance of yorkers, it is perhaps a bit more common in limited overs cricket rather than Test cricket. Hundreds of batsmen have been dismissed over the years in ODI cricket and here is a look at 5 of those who have been dismissed in that mode the highest number of times.
#5 Ricky Ponting- 34
The former Australian captain has gone down in history as one of the greatest batsmen to have ever wielded the bat and in a career spanning 17 years (1995-2012), Ricky Ponting played 375 ODI games for his country. Considering the length of his career, it is in fact not a surprise that he got out LBW 34 times in his career and in this regard, it is also important to point out that he did not have any chronic problem with this particular mode of dismissal.
In fact, his LBW dismissal percentage of 9.32 is the lowest among all the batsmen in this list and that is a clear indication of the fact that and that is perhaps a clear indication of the fact that he was not a walking LBW candidate.
