The World Cup is in India and in sub-continent conditions, there is not much support for the fast bowlers. but the bowlers who are on our list do not require any special conditions to showcase their talent. In this article, we will tell you who are the top 5 fast bowlers in 2023 World Cup to watch out for.
#5 Kagiso Rabada
Rabada is a very experienced South African right-arm fast bowler, he is among the top fast bowlers in the world right now and the reason why I am picking him up is that he knows Indian conditions very well.
#4 Shaheen Shah Afridi
Left-arm speedsters are always very dangerous in ICC tournaments. Afridi was the youngest to register the best bowling figures in the previous 2019 World Cup. We all know what he is capable of. He is equally dangerous with new and old ball.
#3 Trent Boult
Joint highest wicket-taker of the 2015 World Cup and the one who claimed a hattrick in the 2019 World Cup, Trent Boult is a player of big matches, again being a left arm gives him a slight advantage over other bowlers. he is also the one who knows how to bowl in Indian conditions.
#2 Mohammed Siraj
You cannot keep the man in form out of this list as Siraj is currently ranked No.1 ODI bowler in the world. He was the star of the Asia Cup 2023 final where he destroyed Sri Lanka single-handedly. Siraj is in his career’s best phase and recognizing this he can be a big threat to the opposition.
#1 Mitchell Starc
A bowler who was born to perform in ICC tournaments, Mitchell Starc of Australia was the highest wicket-taker in the previous two editions of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup. He is very dangerous with the new ball with an equal amount of swing and speed. Starc will be a main bowler for Australia and looking at his stats he can once again lead the charts of highest wicket-takers.
