Want to be a professional cricketer?
To win a match, batsmen, bowlers and fielders all take the equal responsibilities. While a batsman hugely enjoys to hit a four or sixer, a bowler similarly enjoys when he takes a wicket. Just like the batting or fielding, bowling also requires skills which come from tireless practice and proper understanding the game.
Though the Indian bowlers have now grown up impressively in international cricket, the Indian cricket is very famous for the batting as the country has already produced many legendary batsmen. Some of those batsmen also enjoyed to pick up the wickets in international cricket.
Here we are talking about the first ODI wicket of the top five legendary Indian batsmen
MS Dhoni: dismissed Travis Dowlin (West Indies)
Former Indian World T20 and World Cup-winning captain MS Dhoni is famous for his multiple successful roles, but not for his bowling where he has hardly tried his luck.
After bowling in two Test innings, where the right-arm medium delivered one wicket-less over in each innings, Dhoni first time bowled in ODI cricket during the Group Stage match of the ICC Champions Trophy 2009 against West Indies at Johannesburg on 30th September 2009.
During Dhoni’s first ODI over, Caribbean batsman Travis Dowlin hit two fours in the first two balls. But on the fourth delivery of that over, Dhoni bowled Dowlin (14 runs) and opened up his wicket column in international career. It is his only international wicket.
