Team England loves to play the ODI format and after their new approach to this format, they have dominated this format like no other team. England has produced some world-class bowlers in cricket’s history but not much in white ball cricket. So, in this article, we will see the 5 best bowling figures for England in ODIs.
#5 Mark Ealham
Mark Ealham in the year 2000 registered England’s fifth best bowling figure in ODIs when he took 5 wickets and gave only 15 runs in his spell against Zimbabwe at Kimberley.
#4 Chris Woakes
England’s right-arm fast bowler and a decent all-rounder, Chris Woakes is at No.4 on our list for his bowling figures of 6/47 against Sri Lanka in 2014 at Pallekele. Woakes plays as the main bowler in England’s team. He also plays as an all-rounder which makes him a very important player in England’s team.
#3 Chris Woakes
At No.3 we again have Chris Woakes and this time he is for his brilliant spell against Australia in 2011 at Brisbane in which he took 6 wickets and gave only 45 runs which are third best bowling figure for England in ODIs. Woakes was very young in 2011 which makes it even more special.
#2 Paul Collingwood
It is very interesting to see Paul Collingwood on No.2 because Collingwood was never known for his bowling but England’s current assistant coach figures against Bangladesh in 2005 are England’s third best bowling figures in ODIs. Collingwood took 6 wickets and gave only 31 runs in his spell.
#1 Reece Topley
England’s left-arm fast bowler Reece Topley produced a brilliant spell against India at Lord’s in 2022 when he registered his career-best and also best bowling figures in England’s ODIs history. He took 6 wickets against India and gave only 24 runs in his spell. Topley is still a young bowler but his spell against India opened a very bright future for him.
