Whatever the format of the cricket match, the strong bowling performances are also crucial for a team, just like the strong batting performances. In the 2003 ODI World Cup, which was officially called the ICC Cricket World Cup 2003, we experienced many great bowling spells.

The quality pace bowlers had a very good time during the 2003 ODI World Cup as they dominated in that entire tournament.

Here we are talking about the top five best bowling figures in an innings during the 2003 ODI World Cup

It was the 10th game of the 2003 ODI World Cup (Group Stage), where the Sri Lankan left-arm pacer Chaminda Vaas showed his dominant bowling performance from the very first ball of the game.

After Sri Lanka sent the Bangladesh side to bat first, Vaas claimed a hat-trick after taking three wickets on the very first three balls of that game. At that moment, he dismissed the opener Hannan Sarkar, Mohammad Ashraful and Ehsanul Haque all for the golden duck.

While Bangladesh was all out on 124 runs (31.1 overs), Vaas finished the game with the bowling figures of 9.1-2-25-6. Later, Sri Lanka chased down that target in 21.1 overs without losing any wicket.
