Three Bowlers Who Did Not Concede a Six at the ICC World Cup 2019
In the recently-held ICC World Cup 2019, we have had witnessed enthralling games which including a pulsating grand finale on 14th of July, 2019. Also, it saw lop-sided encounters apart from inclement weather marring the games.
Besides, to talk about the stats, many new records were created with both bat and ball. The bowlers have outshone each other which eventually saw batsman making most of the reprieves.
Such has been the intensity of the twelfth edition of the World Cup. Besides, it had promised a mixed blend of cricket’s greatest spectacle. Notably, hosts England end up winning the maiden title on the virtue of more boundaries than New Zealand following a dramatic tie in the Super Over.
Here were are discussing the bowlers who had played a crucial role in the United Kingdom (UK). Ahead of the tourney, many cricketing pundits believed that teams could score 500 runs which didn’t happen.
However, by going to the score of 300 or 300, it is not deemed as safe for the teams batting first. But bowlers had put on extra effort to make things count.
To be very selective, we’re shedding light on as many as three bowlers who did not get hit even for a single six.
Overall, during the World Cup, five bowlers did not concede a six which includes Kiwis skipper Kane Williamson, who bowled ten overs. Also, Windies’ batting powerhouse, Chris Gayle had sent down nine overs.
The three bowlers we’ve had picked have bowled more than 20 overs. Interestingly, India and Pakistan’s leading wicket-takers; Jasprit Bumrah (18), Mohammad Amir (17) were hit for a six each.
With the ball, Australia’s Mitchell Starc lead as the most wicket-takers list with 27 scalps in 10 matches. He had bagged two five-fers, and as many four-wicket hauls apart.
Let’s have a look at those bowlers who did not concede a six at the ICC World Cup 2019:
Ben Stokes – 50.5 overs, 246 runs – seven wickets:
Ben Stokes, the Man of the Final had produced a scintillating show both with bat and ball. He ended up with seven wickets under his belt in 11 matches. While leaving past his 2016 T20 World Cup demons when Windies’ Carlos Brathwaite slammed him for four consecutive sixes to rob off England for the title at Kolkata, Durham star backed himself in the final.
