(3 November) ICC ODI World Cup 2023: Players with Most Runs and Most Wickets: India is now the first team to officially qualify for the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 Semifinals riding over an easy win against Sri Lanka by a ridiculous 302-run margin. Just 16 days remaining until the final, and the group stage is heading to its final segment with just 12 matches remaining out of 45. Here we are back with the list of Players with Most Runs and Most Wickets So Far in World Cup 2023.
World Cup 2023 has been full of one-sided contests right from the beginning of the tournament. Out of 33 matches, it was only in 2 instances when the match got exciting and the rest of the matches looked mismatched. India have won all of their matches with a healthy margin that has resulted in their strike rate notching up over +2 now after seven matches.
50-run all out in the Asia Cup Final and 55-run all out in the World Cup 2023 match, two back-to-back innings of Sri Lanka against India. Indian bowlers, especially Siraj, are just making fun of those Sri Lankan batters. These two innings are going to haunt Sri Lanka for a very long now.
Sri Lanka won the toss and surprisingly opted to bowl first on the Wankhede pitch. India welcomed the decision with both hands and despite losing Rohit in the 2nd ball of the match, Virat and Gill posted a 180-run stand for the second wicket. Gill missed his century by just 8 runs while Virat missed it by 12 runs and both fell to Dilshan Madushanka. Remember Gill was just 2 rating points away from dethroning Babar’s 900+ days ODI Number 1 player streak.
Rahul and Surya went back for cheap after getting a good start. Shreyas Iyer and Jadeja then kept the run rate going up and only up. Shreyas Iyer notched up his 82 in just 56 balls and Jadeja added 35 in just 24 balls to lead India to a commanding total of 357 at the loss of 8 wickets. Dilshan Madhushanka was excellent and he grabbed a fifer against India.
Jasprit Bumrah got the new ball and drew the first blood in the very first ball of the innings. Siraj from the other end scalped another wicket in the first ball of his over and got two in that over. Another wicket for Siraj in his next over and this time he took the off-stump flying off skipper Kushal Mendis. Sir Lanka lost 4 wickets for just 3 runs and out of those 3, two were wides.
Shami came to bowl his first over and straight-away joined the party. He dismissed Asalanka and Hemantha in two balls of his first over. He then sent Chamira, Mathews, and Rajitha back to the pavilion and celebrated his fifer in a unique style dedicating his fifer to his bowling coach. India bowled out Sri Lanka at 55 runs and won the game by a huge 302-run margin.
