Which Indian bowler has taken a five-wkt haul in all formats?







Manager at Amazon | Posted


Yesterday, fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar has added another feather to his cap and became the first Indian bowler to take a five-wicket haul in all three formats in international cricket. After a stunning Test series, both with the bat and with the ball, Bhuvneshwar had a cold ODI series picking just two wickets. But on Sunday T-20 match against South Africa he again proved that why he is called knuckle bowl specialist by dismissing South Africa's top order in the third over of their innings.


With 5/24, Bhuvneshwar bagged career-best figures in T20Is and also made history to become the first Indian bowler to bag a five-wicket haul in all the three formats of the game. He has four five-wicket hauls in Test cricket and one each in ODIs and T20Is. Other international bowlers who had claimed a similar mark are - Umar Gul, Tim Southee, Ajantha Mendis, Lasith Malinga, and Imran Tahir.
