Most Five Wicket Hauls in ODI World Cup History

Last Modified Nov 18, 2023 19:44 IST

Most Five Wicket Hauls in ODI World Cup History are the rarest occurences as there have been only 64 instances since the tournament started in 1975. In fact, only one player has taken more than two five wicket hauls in World Cup history. It’s also worth noting that only one spinner has taken more than one five-wicket haul in World Cup cricket. Hence, it shows the magnitude of a fifer in a World Cup fixture as the stakes are exceptionally high.
