Australia lifted their fifth World Cup title in 2015 under the captaincy of Michael Clarke. They defeated the co-host New Zealand in the grand finale to grab the hands on the coveted trophy.
The marquee clash was the thrilling match where Kiwis were all out for just 183 runs which was a below-par target for impregnable Australia. Steve Smith and Clarke scored half-centuries to chase the target and ending all the hopes of Kiwis.
During the tournament, several records were build up by batsmen and bowlers. Here, in this article, we have mentioned the five bowlers who were the highest wicket-taker in the ICC World Cup 2015.
Mitchell Starc place was questioned in the team because of his lack of consistency in early of his career. Even before the World Cup 2015, he had gone wicketless in some series but the 30-year old was included in the mega event. He ended all the debates as he turned out to be the highest wicket-taker for Australia in the tournament.
The fast bowler was declared the man of the tournament, picking up 22 wickets in the tournament at an average of 10.18 and a startling economy rate of 3.50. Starc also took the number 1 spot in the ICC ODI rankings after the break-through World Cup campaign.
