In limited-overs cricket, the strike-rate is very important for the batsmen as the higher strike-rate of a batsman generally helps his team to achieve a big total. In the 2019 ODI World Cup, we experienced many higher batting strike-rates.
The 2019 ODI World Cup was hosted by England and Wales which ran from 30th May to 14th July 2019. England finally finished their waiting to win a Cricket World Cup trophy after beating New Zealand in the final of this tournament (tied in the Super Over, England won the final match on the boundary countback rule).
Here we are talking about the top five batsmen with the highest strike-rate in an innings in the 2019 ODI World Cup (at least scored 25 runs in an innings)
Jason Holder (West Indies) – 220.00 against Bangladesh at Taunton on 17th June 2019
It was the 23rd match (League Stage) of the 2019 ODI World Cup where West Indies captain Jason Holder finished the Caribbean innings on a high note. After Bangladesh decided to bat first, when West Indies were batting on 243/5 in 40 overs, skipper Holder came at the crease.
The right-handed batsman scored 33 runs off 15 balls before losing his wicket in the 44th over. In that knock, where he finished with the strike-rate of 220.00, Holder hit 4 fours and 2 sixes.
West Indies managed to score 321/8 (50 overs) in the first innings, majorly due to three 50+ scores, Evin Lewis (70), Shai Hope (96) and Shimron Hetmyer (50). However, Bangladesh successfully chased down the big target in 41.3 overs after losing three wickets, thanks to the batting of Shakib Al Hasan (124 not out) and Liton Das 94 not out).
