MS Dhoni-led India fulfilled their dream to win the Cricket World Cup trophy in the 2011 World Cup (officially named as the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011) where the Indian national cricket team won their second Cricket World Cup trophy after their first such achievement in the 1983 edition.
During the 2011 World Cup, a total of 27 different bowlers managed to claim four or more wickets in an innings for at least once. However, only five of them managed to record it for at least twice.
Here we are talking about the top five bowlers who claimed most 4+ wickets during the 2011 World Cup.
Mitchell Johnson (Australia) – 2 times
During the 2011 World Cup, the Australian left-arm fast bowler Mitchell Johnson finished as the third most wicket-taker for his side. At the end of that tournament, Johnson had the overall bowling figures of 57.3-7-231-10, along with two times 4+ wickets.
Johnson started that tournament with the two four-wicket hauls (during the Group Stage). At first, he managed the bowling figures of 9.2-2-19-4 against Zimbabwe (at Ahmedabad on 21st February 2011). Then, during Australia’s second game of that tournament, which was against New Zealand at Nagpur on 25th February 2011, Johnson managed the bowling figures of 9.1-3-33-4.
