The 14th edition of the ODI Asia Cup starts on August 30th. In this tournament, Team India will face Pakistan on September 2nd. Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are discussed throughout the racquet sport. At the same time, everyone is talking about Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami when it comes to bowling. But now we shall discuss such a number, knowing that many Indian cricket fans might be surprised. This number is the highest wicket-taker in the ODI Asia Cup. By the way, this time, most of those bowlers who haven’t played much in the Asia Cup will be included in the Team India roster. Shami and Bumrah are experienced but both have only played 4-4 games in this tournament. But there is one name who not only has experience but has the potential to make history in the upcoming tournament.

Muralitharan’s great record can be broken

Leading the way is former Sri Lankan veteran Muttiah Muralitharan, who has recorded 30 wickets in 24 games at the ODI Asia Cup so far. What is special, however, is that all of the top 10 players have retired. At the same time, Ravindra Jadeja of India and Shakib Al Hasan of Bangladesh are 9th and 10th respectively. Both have 19-19 wickets to their name. That means both have a chance to become the No. 1 Asian Cup in the upcoming tournament. We tell you that in Asia Cup 2023 each team can play a maximum of 6 matches. On the other hand, if the teams get to the Super 4 tournament and do not reach the final, at least 5 games will be played.

Ravindra Jadeja’s ODI Asia Cup record

Ravindra Jadeja has recorded 19 wickets in 14 innings from 14 games in ODI Asia Cup history. If we talk about Indians, then nobody is close to them. Ravichandran Ashwin has 14 wickets but is not part of the current squad. Apart from that, Kuldeep Yadav has won 10 wickets, Jaspreet Bumrah 9 and Mohammed Shami 8 wickets. Irfan Pathan has won the maximum number of 22 wickets in the ODI Asia Cup for India. But he’s also retired, leaving Jadeja on the verge of becoming India’s top bowler in this tournament. On the other hand, if he takes 12 wickets in the upcoming tournament, he will also become the No. 1 bowler in the ODI Asia Cup.
