Stats: Top 5 ODI bowlers with the best bowling average 

Bangladesh’s bowling sensation Mustafizur Rahman has notched up his third 5 wicket haul in just 9 ODI appearance.

He destroyed Zimbabwe to win the three-match ODI series 3-0 over visiting Zimbabwe team. Bangladesh batting first has scored 276. Zimbabwe have lost the match by 61 runs.

Mustafizur, who made his international debut against India at Dhaka, got his first fifer in the debut match.

Mistafizur now has 26 wickets. His average is 12.34, which is the best in the history of ODI cricket.

The 19-year-old Bangladesh bowler has been impressive since ever he made his debut in July. His average is currently the best in the history. He conceded 34 runs at an economy rate of 4.25 in the final ODI against Zimbabwe. He broke the record of Ottis Gibson of West Indies. Gibson has taken 34 wickets in 15 ODIs at an average of 14. 10.

Rahman’s 5 wicket haul thrashed Zimbabwe by 61 runs in the third and final one-day international to complete a whitewash in Dhaka on Wednesday.  

Zimbabwe were folded up inside 215 in 43.3 overs. The victims of the Rahman are Chamu Chibhabha, Regis Chakabva, Elton Chigumbar, Sikandar Raza and Luke Jongwe.

 

 

 

Zimbabwe after losing three quicks wicket got an 80 runs 4th wicket partnership between Sean Williams and Elton Chigumbura. Rahman has ended the partnership as he bowled Chigumbura.

Rahman topped the list of five bowlers with the best bowling average. The other three bowlers in the list are Ryan Harris of Australia, Tony Gray and Joel Garner of West Indies.

However, this Bangladesh pacer yet to play on foreign soil. The boy Satkhira district of Bangladesh had impressed the selectors at the age of 17. He was at the Under 17 camp at Dhaka. Impressed selectors picked him for the Under 19 team for the 2013-14 World Cup in the UAE.

He does not have much pace, but he is a resourceful bowler. Cutters and more inswing were his best weapons.

Here is the list of the top 5 bowlers who have best ODI average (minimum qualification is 15 wickets)
