Most wickets for India against WI in ODIs

Just a few hours left when India and West Indies will face off against each other in a 3-match ODI series which will be followed by 3 T20Is. Whenever both these teams meet, fun and excitement come with the package. Especially when the WI come to India, they are loved a lot. Many West Indian players have a huge fanbase in India. Because of IPL, the craze of West Indian players has reached new heights primarily because of their power-hitting play. But we often undermine the role bowlers have played over the years. Here is the list of Most wickets for India against WI in ODIs.

Most wickets for India against WI in ODIs

5. Javagal Srinath

The premier bowler for India during the 90s and early 2000s. He has 19 wickets in 17 matches against WI with best figures of 3/34. Srinath has been quite underrated as a player. Mainly because he was the only person to lead the Indian bowling attack. His ability to swing the bowl was very impressive. Had he got any support from the other end, he could have been even more successful. Still, he is referred to as one of the best fast bowlers India has produced.

4. Kapil Dev

One of the best all-rounders the game has ever seen! His stature in Indian cricket cannot be measured. He was a brilliant player. He also has 19 wickets in 17 matches. Kapil Dev took Indian cricket to new heights by winning the 1983 world cup. From there on, Indian cricket rose exponentially. The credit of making India, a superpower in cricket has to be given to him. India has never had any all-rounder like Kapil Dev and is still desperately looking to fill the boots, the way Kapil Dev did.

3. Mohammad Shami

The Indian spearhead along with his fellow bowlers has helped India dominate all over the world. He has been the backbone of Indian cricket for the past couple of years, especially in Test cricket and ODIs. Shami has taken 22 wickets in just 11 matches which is simply incredible! Shami is relentless and lethal. Generally bowls between 135-140+ kmph and swings both ways. His bowling style is as beautiful and rhythmic as anyone can get. He has been given rest for the upcoming series against WI due to workload management.

2. Anil Kumble

The spin wizard Kumble is 2nd on the list with 27 wickets in just 15 matches. We usually associate him with test cricket. And rightly so, he has massive 619 wickets! But he also has 337 wickets in ODIs too. Clearly, he is one of the best spinners of all time after the mighty Shane Warne and Muralitharan. Kumble had a never give up attitude while playing. A famous incident is when he played with a broken jaw. His calibre and skills were one of the finest.

1. Ravindra Jadeja

You probably didn’t see that coming! Yes, the highest wicket-taker against WI in ODIs for India is none other than Ravindra Jadeja. This dashing all-rounder is full of talent. In 18 matches he has taken massive 30 wickets! We can say that he likes to bowl to the windies batters a lot. He is an all-rounder in a true sense. Jadeja bats lower order and is very solid while batting. Not only his batting and bowling, but his fielding skills are also the best in the world. He is a very valuable asset for Indian cricket and a warrior.
